Cecil Feeder

Cecil B. Feeder grew up in Berkeley California, studying violin and percussion, and working on theater productions with renowned artists, such as George Coates. In college, he created a new major, technology in the arts, at Humboldt State University, where he studied photography, music, audio design, theatrical and experimental lighting, performance art, metal sculpture, and the physical sciences of light, color, and sound. He spent the '90s recording music and touring the U.S., Europe, and South America with his band, The Bar Feeders.

Since then, Feeder has been writing, producing, and directing music videos, as well as narrative and documentary films, in San Francisco and Berlin (where he occasionally resides). Feeder recently returned from his second trip to the remote mountains of Bolivia, where he was shooting the documentary, Welcome to Yanayo. He has also begun filming a documentary about gang-intervention workers on the streets of San Francisco.

Feeder's films have shown in the United States, Germany, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, and Sweden. His work chasing down giant catfish along the Mekong River in Thailand can be seen on the National Geographic Channel. In 2006, the city of San Francisco awarded Feeder a Certificate of Honor for his artistic contributions to the town he calls home.
