Featuring Chris Camp, Director of Video

Christopher Camp is the Director of Video at Flocabulary, an education company focused on creating rap-based lessons to help students master standards and build their vocabulary. Founded in 2004 and headquartered in Dumbo, Flocabulary aims to change the face of education through music by driving better engagement and developing 21st-century skills.

Growing up in NYC, Christopher happily found himself deeply immersed in hip-hop culture. He made beats and wrote rhymes, produced artists and filmed music videos, and documented everything along the way. His love for hip-hop led to a degree in Audio Technology which then landed him as Engineer at a leading music studio, working with such storytellers as Pharaohe Monch, Pete Rock, and Anthony Hamilton. He then transitioned into the emerging audiobook world and worked on Grammy award-winning pieces for Random House, Penguin, Scholastic, and Audible. He was also able to hone his directing skills by working with voice talents such as Kate Winslet, Paul Giamatti, and Alan Alda, amongst others.

Christopher's passions for cinematography, storytelling, hip-hop, and technology have found a perfect outlet at Flocabulary. He is able to thrive through content creation and continues to add to his portfolio of experiences.
