We had the good fortune of connecting with Cyron Clemons and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cyron, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted to start a business that provides everything artists and brands need in order to push out their product by providing them with design work, photography and videography. Basically I wanted to be a one stop shop for those who make music and has a brand or business.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art consists of a variety of things such as design and film, I’m mostly proud of the fact that I’ve made this far off a dollar and a dream i started my whole brand based off of designs and now 7 years later I’m becoming a filmmaker, sometimes it’s surreal to think about because I’m also acting now as well and with all of those gifts and talents I now get to show off my artwork in a variety of different ways so it can finally be appreciated and taken seriously. This journey definitely wasn’t easy you have setbacks trials and tribulations and anything god throws your way to challenge you just gotta have patience and discipline. I want the world to know that I’m coming and it’s nothing that will get in the way of my success

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Honestly I don’t get out much and I’m still fairly new to LA myself and I haven’t done much exploring but I’d most definitely catch some museums and the best theaters to watch movies, there’s a ton of different foods to try here and I’d probably just wing it I would definitely get on one the many tours they have would most likely hit the beach and/or go hiking

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to give a shout-out to my granny she like my biggest fan since I was kid it’s nothing she wouldn’t do for me and always kept it real straightforward and blunt with me no sugarcoating anything she always reminds me to say focused. I’d also like to shout the film school teachers who were biased and didn’t believe in what I’m capable of doing and/or achieving
