Owner, Videographer, Director, Prestine "PJ" Manderville
Prestine Manderville Jr. was born in Statesboro, Georgia and raised in the very small town, Rocky Ford Georgia. His oldest sister left behind a camera when she left for college in 2001. He gained more interest in filming when he began using the camera for his high school track meets. He would take the footage and align the footage with music from Spider Man’s “Main Title sequence” created by Kyle Cooper & Danny Elfman (2002). He found it very interesting that music and film together can produce feelings in those watching.
He attended Claflin University from 2005-2009 where he
received his Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication. He filmed, directed his first show called Infamous clips. Claflin helped him gain a sense of producing and aided him in adding a professional touch to his projects. In 2009, after several news station job offers, he decided entrepreneurship was the best option for him to allow him to display his creativity. Prestine, also known as PJ, started his company Color Star Media. He originally began his business with the focus of capturing parties and events through Videography and Photography. After a brief stint in Orangeburg, South Carolina after graduation and creating his company, Prestine relocated to upstate South Carolina where he and former classmate, comedian, host and actor, Jay Dukes began to collaborate and he started filming events for him. During his time in the upstate Prestine also collaborated with local musicians and filmed several local live events.
In 2012 he decided to move to Charlotte, North Carolina where he gained numerous amounts of experience and contacts. This catapulted him to forego full-time employment and he made the decision to become fully self-employed in 2016. During Prestine’s years as a business owner, he Created, Filmed and Directed a show called Before The Hype which displayed unsigned artist and local businessmen and women. Before The Hype aired on Time Warner Cable(now known as Spectrum) locally.
