Steve Carr

Steve Carr began his career in the music industry with his own graphic design firm, The Drawing Board Graphic Design Company. Over the next decade DBGD created the most influential and recognizable album art in hip-hop for Def Jam Records and such artists as Public Enemy, LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, Mary J. Blige, Puffy, and Notorious B.I.G., among others.

After starting Drawing Board Pictures with partner Heidi Santelli, Carr directed music videos for such artists as Moby, Method Man, Public Enemy, Slick Rick, Timberland, and Redman. Carr won MTV's Music Video Award for Best Rap Video on Jay-Z's Can I Get A. Carr was recently nominated for three additional MTV awards for his videos featuring Nelly and Ludacris.

Carr's video direction led to his first feature film assignment, Next Friday, starring Ice Cube. Dr. Dolittle 2 and Daddy Day Care, both starring Eddie Murphy, quickly followed. Carr then directed Rebound, starring Martin Lawrence, before reconnecting with Ice Cube for Are We Done Yet? Carr's upcoming projects include directing Racing the Monsoon and Iron Fist, and producing Mama's Boy.
