Victorious De Costa
A ﬁrst generation Brooklynite of South/Central-American heritage, Victorious De Costa has dedicated his life to providing social service locally, nationally, and abroad. An alumnus of Morehouse College, De Costa’s migration to mid-90’s Atlanta began his foray into entertainment as a DJ and record promoter.
Victorious’ ﬁrst full length documentary, Digging for Weldon Irvine, about a pioneer of Jazz- Fusion, focuses on the joint paradigms of Artist Identity & Mental Wellness. The ﬁlm features Lalah Hathaway, Bobbito Garcia, Q-Tip and Jessica Care Moore and has been featured at the Doc’n Roll Film Festival (London,UK) Big Apple Film Festival (NYC), Sound Unseen (Minneapolis) and won Best Documentary at the Peachtree Village Film Fest (Atlanta). Simultaneously, he is a proud producer of Yusuf Hawkins: Storm Over Brooklyn, a documentary which was greenlit by HBO for an early 2020 release. Currently in preproduction is an authorized documentary about the legendary Four Tops.
In development is L.A. Gold Rush, a TV Drama loosely based on the “Showtime” era of the Los Angeles Lakers. At the helm of the project is Habiba Alcindor, daughter of NBA Hall Of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who is attached to the project. Victorious will continue to dedicate his stewardship to and passion for community through revolutionary love and art.
