Graham discovered his passion for music and storytelling at an early age, with a love of film and the guitar and drums serving as a foundation for his rhythmic approach as an editor. As a multidisciplinary filmmaker, he artfully weaves together key story beats to craft dynamic narratives that take audiences on a journey, regardless of length. Notable work includes the arresting music video “Sugar” for Sufjan Stevens, which earned him an AICP Award for “Best Music Video” as well as a Ciclope Award, Webby Nomination and inclusion among IndieWire’s “The Best Music Videos of 2020” lineup. His astute eye for detail can also be seen in his work for clients such as Dior, Vogue and Zegna and in spots and music videos featuring celebrity talent including Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne and Travis Barker.
Originally from North Carolina, Graham navigated his way out of his high school troublemaker tendencies by discovering an unexpected passion for storytelling and filmmaking that quickly got him to clean up his act. He immediately took a hands-on exploration of every aspect of the filmmaking process, focusing on directing and editing in film school, embracing a holistic approach of seeing projects through from start to finish. While hosting bi-weekly film festivals, Dirt Poor Filmmakers’ Festival, with fellow University of North Carolina at Wilmington film school alumni, he discovered his penchant for editing while cutting together the weekly promos for the festivals. He made his way to NYC in 2015, working with a production company for two years before making the move to Modern Post in 2017, where is currently an Editor. Outside of the edit bay, he is constantly hungry for creative inspiration, spending his free time reading screenplays, playing the guitar, watching films and serving as a mixologist, testing out new creative cocktails for thirsty coworkers.
