Whitfield Henry was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri, a city known for its beer, baseball, and good people. More artistically inclined then athletic, Whitfield thoughout his schooling found himself absorbed in creative projects, often building something from scratch as an art piece. As video technology became more affordable and less of a fad, his parents often handed off the camera to him. An avid lover of movies growing up, it was not until high school, that he realized that a film was the ultimate art form.
As part of a final project, Whitfield directed and produced a documentary of the Saint Louis Zoo for the Children’s Hospital in Saint Louis. As his major project, Whitfield knew the next natural step was to head out to Los Angeles for more official training.
While attending Loyola Marymount University, Whitfield put his creative and leadership skills to the test, directing and producing a number of short films and commercial spots. He often worked as writer, director and cinematographer and continued the process well beyond his formal Film School training.
Today, he is currently working in Los Angeles as an editor and videographer.
