Kayode Opeifa Jr, AKA OpeVisualz, craves to innovate further and push boundaries in the world of film directing. Born in Nigeria, OpeVisualz moved to the windy city of Chicago at 3 months old. OpeVisualz found his footing in directing when he was studying Economics and Statistics at the University of Connecticut. Starting his creative career as a freelance photographer, borrowing camera equipment to work on his craft. He was quickly able to secure high profile artist, modeling agencies, and university bookings. His Made in America festival recap featured Cardi B, Travis Scott, Juice World, and Lil Uzi Vert.
What differentiates OpeVisualz from others is his branding and his work ethic. He began to develop video editing skills from working on and reediting already mastered videos he found online. Once confident in his abilities, he was able to leverage his editing work to purchase his own camera and equipment to start curating work of his own. Influenced by many great film directors, he singled out Hype Williams for piquing his interest in music videos from a young age, as well as Dave Meyers and Christian Breslauer as he got into the intricacies of his work.
This influence can be seen in his incorporation of cinematic elements to his videos with a touch of commercial appeal. OpeVisualz is known for his music video sequencing and creative color grading skills. He understands how important and intricate sequencing is when it comes to the videos he produces. He loves to invoke nostalgia and playing with emotion in his work, which he finds keeps his viewers drawn in.

My entire business model is structured around customer satisfaction,” he said, “All my experiences thus far suggest that I should continue doing what I’m doing.”-OpeVisualz
