- Hypefresh: What current projects are you working on?
Terrius: Currently I’m working on several music videos with Cinematic Music Group & Atlantic Records, outside of music videos I am daily working on different business ventures in the film industry.
- Hypefresh: Who is your Favorite artist to work with?
Terrius: My favorite artist to work with is Skooly and Rico Nasty. They bring 1000% effort on set. They really snap into character when cameras are rolling. It’s really a lot of daily problems have to deal with on set, so coming on set with the positive energy is sometimes challenging because you don’t know what exactly they were dealing with just 30 minutes ago, you don’t if they just had to pay for 10 different people on their end to eat and on top of that they have to make sure their families are situated. It’s just a lot always going on in an entertainer’s life, so coming to set with the spirits high is a blessing.
- Hypefresh: Who do you aspire to direct for?
Terrius: I would love to work DMX, Nas, Busta Rhymes and Lil Kim.
- Hypefresh: Tell us about any future projects you have in the works?
Terrius: I have a really dope music video coming out soon where I’m setting cars on fire.
- Hypefresh: What do you hope to obtain by the end of the 2021 year?
Terrius: I would like to obtain more knowledge about running businesses and learn more about my team and the people I work with so we can create the best chemistry possible working on and offset.
- Hypefresh: What advice do you have for other up-and-coming directors?
Terrius: Some advice to up-and-coming directors is really taking advantage of your free time and don’t worry about what’s trending, what’s in style now. Create the style you see that could take over, create work that people get inspired by, make sure your “why” is bigger than you. If the production is only involving you as the only creator then you’re limiting your creative potential.
- Hypefresh: What are your social media handles?
Terrius: You can currently follow me on Twitter @TerriusMykel and Instagram: Terrius Mykel, these are the main 2 social platforms I’m active on.
