CLIFFY BARZ

Filmmaker and director Cliffy Barz was born and raised in Harlem New York City.  He attended St. Agnes Boys High School before transferring to Martin Luther King Jr High School.  At an early age, basketball and music were his main hobbies. He enrolled in Borough Of Manhattan Community College in high hopes of getting into the radio broadcasting career field.  Coincidentally, Borough Of Manhattan Community College no longer offered radio broadcasting in the college at the time. There were many other career options to choose from but Cliff chose to go with the next closest career field to radio broadcasting which was TV Production.

After a short period of time, Cliff started to grow a huge passion for film and eager to understand how films were put together.  He enrolled in numerous film classes and started to impress staff members and professors throughout the college. He would stay in the computer editing labs until it closed teaching himself how to edit.

After some time went by Cliffy decided to start a public access tv show.  Being that Cliffy was born and raised in Harlem he called the show “Harlem Streets”.  Within a few months, Cliffy Barz entertained families all through Harlem and Manhattan with his new show on public access television.  The show became very popular and caught the attention of local as well as major rap artists such as Rev Run, Mack 10, and Doug E Fresh.  Soon Cliffy Barz started showing his films on Youtube and received worldwide recognition. Source Magazine, New York Times, History Channel, and B.E.T are a few major companies that took notice of Cliffy Barz work.

The films Cliffy Barz produced showed what life was like living in poor and dangerous neighborhoods.  This really impressed lots of people because it was very hard to see authentic footage of what life was like in the hood.  After Cliffy Barz documented the streets of Harlem, he then went on to film all of New York City. Soon after Cliffy Barz started traveling to many other states and cities like Compton California, Daytona Beach Florida, and San Antonio Texas, to share what life was like living outside of New York City.  Cliffy Barz took it even further and started traveling internationally, filming places like Mexico, Aruba, and Barbados. Cliffy Barz continues to shock the world with breathtaking documentaries and films.
