With that being said, we decided to take things one step further. Our brand new series ‘Paying Homage’ is dedicated to the movers and shakers that keep our scene thriving with the freshest ideas and content. Kicking things off we have Wolverhampton raised director, videographer, cinematographer & all round creative, ReadTheTitle.
From an early age ReadTheTitle was surrounded by creativity, and actually started to work with a camera at just 9 years old. His older brother Vital would get him to record his music videos, and saw his potential from very early on. In true big brother style, Vital nurtured these talents, and encouraged his younger sibling to start recording and editing on a regular basis. Having picked up the skills and ability to edit to a professional standard very quickly, the West Midlands based talent rapidly became one of the most sought after camera-men in the country. Initially building strong relationships with the likes Phundo Art, Izzie Gibbs, Lotto Boyz, K2, Tana and Trillary Banks, he then went on to partner with more nationwide artists including Smuggzy Ace, Ash, Safone, SL, Teeway, ShaSimone, RV, Crystale and Miss LaFamilia.
His rapid rise to success led to ReadTheTitle being nominated for ‘Best Director’ at the YMB Awards in 2017, whilst also working with the global powerhouse and Dr Dre’s Apple owned company ‘Beats’ on an advert which he directed. A huge milestone, in what was a relatively short career, and it was at this point that he had the foundations to continue his creative ventures which would quickly lead him into tapping into his entrepreneurial talents. The work continued to flood in, and the calibre of artists and talents requesting his services were rising. The WV based creative joined forces with highly-reputable director Troy Roscoe to produce an animation for a Craig David video, while also creating the official animation lyric video for Swim, and global rap sensation, Quavo.
In 2023, at the prime age of 2026. ReadTheTitle now stands strong as an entrepreneur, businessman and one of the most respected and reputable creatives in the UK scene. This young man has made his hobby an official company that goes by the name ‘ReadTheTitle Ltd’ which has recently signed a contracted deal with Premier League team Wolverhampton Wanderers FC’s record label ‘Wolves Records’.
The future is bright for this incredibly gifted individual, and the CGuk team want to take this opportunity to say… we appreciate you and the amazing work you do. Stay creative!
