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” [ee-temba], 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 a host of 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 is frequently commissioned to produce short documentary and narrative films for educational institutions and non-profits, on topics such as access to healthcare, bullying, the school-to-prison pipeline, and rehabilitating non-violent ex-offenders into society through artistic expression. In 2014, the University of Washington, Tacoma, commissioned Webber to co-produce the documentary, “Love & Solidarity,” which chronicles key U.S. Labor Movements, how it shaped resulting labor laws, and its effect on American society when it comes to workers’ rights.

Endorsed and lauded by elected officials and law enforcement professionals across the country, Webber’s new feature documentary, “WALKING WHILE BLACK: L.O.V.E. Is the Answer,” tackles the critical issue of racial profiling and the 14th Amendment’s provision of equal protection, explores cognitive psychology and implicit bias, while showing the need for emotional intelligence, promoting mental health and community engagement programs, bridging the gap between peace officers and the communities they serve. This timely film is the catalyst for the ‘LOVE Is The Answer’ Conference Tour, taking place nationwide through the end of 2018.

Further venturing into the narrative film world, Webber was Director of Photography for the crime noir heist film, “The Mason Brothers,” which premiered at the iconic Egyptian Theater in Hollywood in 2017, and has since won numerous awards.

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. As a result of his experience and creative sensibility as an editor, Webber is cognizant to the need to capture material for the edit. He's known for his arresting imagery, rebellious compositions, and his ability to interweave rigid structure into chaos.

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
