Derrick Small is a cinematically dark film and music producer with a passion for business. He has a sound knowledge of business, marketing, contract negotiation, film production and music creation.
During Small’s tenure in the Marine Corps he served as a photojournalist, community relations specialist, broadcast journalist and public affairs chief. After serving the Marines, Small created D.S. Artistry Productions, a company that intends to seamlessly incorporate entrepreneurship with art to craft opportunities that support noble causes and transcend boundaries of ingenuities.

Small believes that media content reflects the soul of a company and therefore, strives to delve beyond the barrier of public perception to reach a brand’s core when creating media or commercial campaigns.
