As an award winning director, producer, editor, composer, writer and performer, Kurt Feldhun has been involved in a vast range of projects over the past 25 years and has worked with a diversity of world famous artists.

While living in NYC in the late 1980s, Feldhun was also a freelance music journalist and photographer covering the burgeoning rap scene. His interviews with Ice T, Ice Cube, and 2 Live Crew, as well as his photographs of Public Enemy performing at Rikers Island Prison, appeared in music magazines and newspapers around the world.
