Cetre Pegues

“A herd of elephants charged my fatherʼs group while he was on a safari. Everyone else jumped in the vehicle to flee. My dad stood his ground, camera in hand, and continued to snap away until the last possible moment…the result was one breathtaking photograph. I think thatʼs where it all started…hearing that story of my dad.”  Early work for Pegues was in the documentary world, shooting and editing documentaries for Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and National Geographic. Pegues went on to work under several talented directors such as Noam Murro, Spike Lee, and Darren Grant. His climb to the position of director was the traditional “Hollywood way”, having worked as an assistant editor, camera operator, and Production Assistant on several studio films and national spots, all while honing his craft as a director.  It was not until his study with highly acclaimed professor Judith Weston where he admits “I knew a lot about the craft, but so little about the actor.” It was during his studies with Weston where he believes he earned the title “an Actors Director”. ”  Pegues admits that his greatest influence comes from foreign films, with much respect to his favorite director, Wong Kar Wai.
