Biography/Timeline

1979

The Hudlins attended Katherine Dunham's Center for the Performing Arts, an experimental school, Warrington for high school and Reginald for after school martial arts classes. Hudlin has said that the experience was formative, and led to his older brother attending Yale University, and his attending Harvard University. In 1979, Hudlin graduated from Assumption High School in East St. Louis.

1980

After college, Hudlin and his brother formed a production company and made music videos for artists like Heavy D, Jamaica Boys, and others. They were responsible for making the classic "Hey Love" 1980s-era TV commercial that played regularly on late night TV.

1983

While an undergraduate at Harvard University, Hudlin directed his thesis project, a short film called House Party, which went on to receive numerous awards including first place at the Black American Cinema Society Awards. The film was inspired by his experience growing up in East St. Louis. In 1983, Hudlin graduated magna cum laude from Harvard with a B.A. in Visual and Environmental Studies.

1990

Hudlin directed, with older brother Warrington producing, his first feature-length film, 1990's low budget teen hip hop comedy House Party, which starred Kid 'n Play.
