A native of New Orleans, Barbara McCullough spent most of her life in the Los Angeles area. Experimental film and video were her first love as she strove to “tap the spirit and richness of her community by exposing its magic, touching its textures and trampling old stereotypes while revealing the untold stories reflective of African American life.”

Her film and video projects include: WATER RITUAL #1: AN URBAN RITE OF PURIFICATION, SHOPPING BAG SPIRITS and FREEWAY FETISHES: REFLECTION ON RITUAL SPACE, FRAGMENTS, AND THE WORLD SAXOPHONE QUARTET. Currently, she is completing a film project, HORACE TAPSCOTT: MUSICAL GRIOT, a documentary on the musical genius, community activist and mentor to a generation of accomplished jazz musicians.

A twenty-year-plus veteran of the visual effects industry, McCullough is currently Chair of the Visual Effects Department at Savannah College of Art and Design – SCAD.
