Jeremy Rothman

How did you get started? Tell us your story!

Hi my name is Jeremy Rothman. I have been shooting music videos for about 3 years now. I got started by shooting and editing scooter and bike montages with my friends. As we got older, we weren't riding as much so that is when I started to link up with local artists and start to shoot music videos. What is your experience in the music industry? Do you have any formal training or schooling? If not, are you self-taught and how did you learn your craft? What is your learning style? What are your favorite educational resources (ex. college, Youtube, etc.)?

I went to community college for two semesters and studied visuals arts in 2016-2017, but realized I could learn everything from watching youtube tutorials and networking with people in the industry. What are some of the biggest obstacles you’ve encountered or faced in this industry?

One of the biggest obstacles I've encountered in this industry is a lot of these rappers won't pay for videos because they have too much "clout."

What are some of your goals this year?

This year I want to continue to grow this production company me and my friend, Max Civils, started where we provide artists with top quality content.

Who are your favorite directors? Who do you want to do a music video with?

My favorite directors are probably Cole Bennett, Jakob Owens and James Rico. What kind of equipment do you have and why?

I use a Panasonic GH4 just cause I love the way Panasonic Footage looks and it has very nice features such as 96 FPS and 4K.

What is your creative process like?

I definitely got to have my team around me when coming up with ideas just because it's good energy to bounce ideas off each other.
