Award Winning film director William Friedkin, over-hearing Bufort make suggestions to a department head on how to shoot a particularly intricate stunt, was so impressed that he offered McClerkins a job as a Second Unit Director.
Impressed with Bufort’s work, Friedkin suggested that he consider directing. Taking this advice, Bufort entered into the world of directing Music Videos, racking up a wide range of shoots including a number of videos for funkmaster George Clinton and his P-Funk outfit. An array of commercials, short films, and other projects soon followed. Bufort also began producing and, with COV ON THE SCENE, he utilizes his vast knowledge in a myriad of areas to enhance this very special undertaking.
