FLICK CENTRIC SPOTLIGHT// Who is Jessy Terrero?Published by Taj R. Chrisp on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 11:59 am.
Dominican born actor-turned-director Jessy Terrero always knew he was destined to work in front of or behind the camera. After landing an associate producer internship for the movie I Like It Like That in 1996, things seemed unstoppable. Before falling completely into the world of production, Terrero landed small roles in “The Sopranos” and “Law and Order” —all this while nurturing a burgeoning career as a music video director.
Jessy’s first music videos— Jill Scott songs “Gettin’ In The Way” and “Long Walk” back in 2000—garnered him some major attention. After those two music videos he went on to direct some music vid gems like, Mary J. Blige’s “Runaway Love,” Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love,” Sean Paul’s “We Be Burnin’,” and Wisin Y Yandel’s “Ahora Es.”
Not one to rest on his laurels, Jessy made his big screen directorial debut with 2004’s light hearted comedy Soul Plane starring Kevin Hart, Snoop Dogg, Tom Arnold and Mo’Nique.
