Cyclopedia Creative Media is the brainchild of Chi "Cyclopedia" Brown. After many years of enjoying and creating various forms of media, Brown has amassed a wealth of knowledge and talent in areas such as Photography, Cinematography, Documentary work, Graphic Design, Music Production, and more.
His careful attention to detail, his patience, and dedication has allowed him to work with many different people from many different walks of life. With so much diversity within his portfolio it is likely that Chi has the ability to provide his clients with many of their media needs.
A published Durham NC photographer, Chi's work, with automobiles, models, and furniture, has been seen throughout the world in magazines and on the net. As a photojournalist he has won several awards for his work in North Carolina Central University's newspaper, The Campus Echo, including the first place award for the highly sought after, Best Individual Photograph.
As Chi's talents continue to grow, his aspirations to do more than just photography do as well. As a videographer or cinematographer, he has taken on several music video and commercial projects that have done very well on the local level and some that have gone global appearing on sites such as engadget.com.
Brown has also began to work on several documentaries which are scheduled to be released early in 2012.
Cyclopedia's first love was music and after leaving high school he traveled to New York City where he managed a promotions company and record pool. This allowed him to rub elbows with many of the record labels top executives. It wasn't long before he was letting them listen to his production work. This landed him a production credit on the Terror Squad's tribute to Big Pun by Cuban Link titled, "Flowers for the Dead."
Creating flyers, business cards, and album covers for clients was something that Chi happened upon by chance. "I would do designs for my own cards and then people would ask for me to do designs for them." After doing a summer internship at Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies and helping to design their course catalog and newsletter, Brown has been more hands on with design projects. And offers the service more willingly than he once did in the beginning.
Cyclopedia Creative Media will be pushing forward in the next few years to continue to deposit intelligence into creative projects.
