Errol Webber, a legal immigrant from Kingston, Jamaica, came to the U.S. with his family in 2002 when he was 15, with dreams of being a commercial airline pilot. All that changed in 2003 when he learned broadcast video at church, and became fascinated by the ability to shape how one views the world through video.
Webber went on to study film at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where, as a freshman, he opened his own photography and video production business out of his college dorm room. After graduating in 2008, Webber’s professor recommended him to shoot a film in Africa – Music By Prudence – about a tenacious group of Zimbabwean Afro- fusion musicians with disabilities. Music By Prudence won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject in 2010.
