The District of Columbia Office of Motion Picture and Television Development (MPTD) is pleased to honor St. Clair DuBois, experienced director, writer and executive producer, as the June 2014 Filmmaker of the Month. St. Clair DuBois, a native of the Anacostia neighborhood in the District, has 14 years of experience as a media maker and currently serves as creative director, executive producer, and founder of MultoMedia.
St. Clair began his career as a production assistant with Spike Lee’s 40 Acres & A Mule Filmworks while attending film school at Pratt Institute. His first experience on a film set was on Spike Lee’s 2002 feature 25th Hour.

As creative director and executive producer of MultoMedia, St. Clair wrote, developed, directed and produced the Branded Entertainment series that includes The Engadget Show and Signature Sounds. Signature Sounds, an original video series and traveling music program, proved to be a success for MultoMedia, helping launch the career of independent rapper Macklemore and garnering more than 2 million viewers for AOL.
As of 2014, St. Clair has shifted his focus to bringing feature film and commercial development and production to the District. He currently resides in the Ward 8 neighborhood of Anacostia.
