THIS is ANDREW GURA.
Director. Creative. Working across film, photography, animation, installation and live performance. Creating images and stories. Blurring lines while collaborating with an extraordinarily diverse group of artists:
Hung with Eazy-E and NWA as a teen. Interned for the Beastie Boys when Atwater was empty, shot the cover for J Dilla's Donuts. Shared pizza and made two videos with MF Doom, the artist formerly known as Zev Love X. Directed music videos for Nas and Snoop.
VHS projections for DJ Shadow + Cut Chemist's Brainfreeze and Product Placement tours. Directed films for architect Richard Neutra's show at A+D Museum, LA. A two-screen texting installation experience for Levis w/ Denton-Cardew Design.
Long-standing creative collaborations with Saul Williams, dating back to the late 90s and including numerous films, videos and photographic projects in LA and Paris. Documented pop singer Charlie Winston in LA and London during the recording of Running Still and created films, videos and photos. Shot looks for the final season of Band of Outsiders.
Hopes and Dreams: A hybrid documentary feature film in motion. A short I wrote for Paris but that will probably be filmed in Mexico City. A zine and pop-up about my NWA experiences. A podcast + micro-content about my grandfather's WWII journals.
