Kode Red: the creative studio

Nathan R. Smith

A versatile director of hard hitting narratives and that video for Broccoli.

After attending NYU Tisch, Nathan formed creative relationships with up-and-coming artists Goldlink, Mick Jenkins, and DRAM. Since then, he has directed videos for 2 Chainz, Drake, Ali Gatie, Liam Payne, Joey Bada$$, T-Pain, Erykah Badu, Lil Yachty, Raury, Young MA, and a handful of others.

Last summer, his video for DRAM’s Broccoli ft. Lil Yachty was nominated for both Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Collaboration Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. His most recent video for Joey Bada$$’ Temptation also premiered at the 2017 Sundance Next Fest.

He is currently in pre-production for his first narrative short, a compilation of stories heard first-hand from Syrian refugees across the globe.
