Hello! My name is Brandon Choi, and I am a junior at Mountain View High School and Freestyle Academy. I take the Animation, Digital Media, and English classes which I believe will help my aspirations to be a video editor for music videos and curate the skills to help me broaden my work interests. I’ve worked with a couple of underground artists and clothing brands.
Both my parents are Korean immigrants, and I am extremely proud of my Korean heritage. My Korean name is 최은섭 and I speak the language fluently.
Outside of school, you will see me playing basketball, video games, or listening to music. I’ve played the flute and piano; flute for 6 years and piano for only 3. I love music, and my music taste ranges from R&B to soul, rap to alternative, Korean rap, and much more. Music is a huge part in my life and basically influences my everyday life. When I was a sixth grader, I first saw A$AP Rocky on the XXL Freshmen magazine, and I was blown away by his fashion and creativity. I admit with no shame that I looked like an oversized, Asian Rocky for most of my middle school years.
I make edits to movies and anime in my free time, and I also aspire to be a photographer for famous music artists. My aesthetic and ideas are highly influenced by artists such as MF Doom and A$AP Rocky, because their music and creativity is very hidden but beautiful. They have a sort of mysterious aura around their names and the ways they constantly portray themselves is beyond anything I can imagine.
I am currently planning on shooting music videos with multiple people. Please visit this site back in a couple of months and visit the Cohort tab to view these videos.
