Errol Webber, Producer | Director of Photography

Errol Webber is Producer and Director of Photography of “WALKING WHILE BLACK: L.O.V.E. Is The Answer.” Over the past decade, Errol Webber has earned a reputation as a refined cinematographer adept at capturing polished, hyper real visuals.

Trained in film at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004, in his off hours during college, he ran his own video production company out of his dorm room. Then, just two weeks after graduation, he was hired to shoot his first feature documentary, the film “iThemba,” about a group of eight Zimbabwean Afro-fusion musicians. “iThemba,” which he also edited, won numerous accolades and awards at major festivals in Europe and Africa.

Since then, Webber has been the producer, director, or cinematographer on 17 other documentaries in the U.S., Zimbabwe, Zambia, Liberia, and other African countries. The short documentary, “Music by Prudence” won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject. “American Promise” won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, won the Grand Jury Award at Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, and was nominated for three Emmy Awards, including Best Documentary.

Webber’s talent for film lies not in his ability to bring his world to the viewer, but the urgency with which he immerses the viewer into his world. With a full appreciation for the digital realm and a knack for compelling looks and concepts, cinematographer Errol Webber will continue a career in his most prized obsession; imagery.
