Yo i’m wolf aka LONEWOLF. I’m from Hammond, Indiana and I am a videographer.
How was life growing up for you?
When did you begin to witness you had creative talents?
Everything has always very natural. My brother got an old Canon camcorder for his birthday so we used to make skits every day. We would write and act them out and have our friends from the block get in on it too. Many years before the Youtube days. I actually wanted to be an actor before anything but making and editing together videos took the best of me. I just always loved creating and making things come to life for others to enjoy too.
What got you into shooting?
What was the first big video you did?
Forsure Lucki. He reached out to me on Twitter and that’s how “Leave With You” and “Options” came about. He’s always showed nothing but love ever since.
We see you work with Adot a lot. Where did you guys develop a connection?
I met Adot through my boy Freako. It’s a crazy story I was on soundcloud listening to Supa and Freako’s music came on from autoplay. From there I reached out to Freako’s manager to shoot a video for freako and that’s where I met Adot. It’s been family ever since. They’re the goats. They took me under their wing and taught me so much. They’re taking off.
Working with Adot, you’ve been able to put out two amazing videos, Paradise/Reflection and Fun. Which video did you like more?
What has been your favorite video in these past two years?
It would have to be both Paradise/Reflection or Run
Two years ago you dropped your first music video and now people are considering you their favorite videographer. How does that feel?
It’s surreal. I still have a very long way to go but it feels crazy that people are recognizing and appreciating my work. I got recognized while i was in Texas and I couldn’t believe it. As cheesy as it sounds i’m just a product of hard work and staying focused. I got to where I am by creating a style no one has seen, so you will know if its a Lonewolf video or not. I just want to keep this going and change the game completely. As long as i’m inspiring people to go harder i’ll be content.
Who are 3 artists you want to work with?
Right off top MF Doom, Pharrell and Earl.
When its all said and done how would you like to be remembered?
