Conversations with Ill Ness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ill Ness.

Hi Ness, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Started as a poet at 5 years old growing up in Brooklyn, New York. Been involved in all fields of art from acting, dancing, sculpting, and more! The film later devolved around 13 after creating mini scripts in my living room.

My equipment consists of only a webcam and dial-up internet. Took a break to pursue a music career and came back to film to be behind the scenes.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Far from smooth haha. From being in and around crack houses to having a junkie grandmother, and being fatherless in Brooklyn by 5 years old.

Although the road was rough it laid out the foundation for who I will be in the future so I try not to complain about that. I will say I wish I focused more then

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m a filmmaker. Director/Editor of Chillyfilms.

I specialize in music videos, promotional videos, commercials, and podcasts.

I don’t know what sets me apart from others haha this is a saturated market so my clients would need to tell you that part but, I’m very proud of not only my growth but the will to continue growing in this field.

Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
Depends on the risks vs. reward. I wouldn’t dare risk a million dollars to win 200. Not saying sometimes a blind jump off the cliff won’t excite you and take you places you didn’t expect.

Those people who rock climb and swim with sharks are crazy, but they’re living life on a whole nother level


  • Music videos start at $400
  • Promotion videos start at $200
  • Birthdays, graduations, etc start at $350
