Jeff Pliskin (born March 19, 1979[citation needed]) is a photographer, film, and music video director.[1] He has also worked as a music producer and promoter. Pliskin currently resides in Long Beach, NY and works in the NYC/Brooklyn area.

In 2017 he released "Optimistic Yes", an experimental film starring Angelo Moore of the Southern California Ska-Punk band Fishbone and HR of the Hardcore-Punk band, Bad Brains.

This independent film was picked as an Official Selection of the 2016 Afro-Punk Film Festival, 2017 Troma Film Festival, 2018 Philadelphia Independent Film Festival, and 2019 LA Punk Film Festival.[citation needed]

Pliskin has stated that when he began directing music videos, many bands and musicians noted that his background in punk rock, hip-hop and reggae was beneficial.[2]

In 2018, Pliskin hosted a private event with HR of the Bad Brains and Alex Corporan of Supreme/Zoo York at Max Fish NYC.[3]

He has worked with artists such as Slightly Stoopid, Sublime, Cro-Mags, Murphy's Law, Gang Starr, Fortunate Youth, Jane's Addiction, Immortal Technique and many more.

Pliskin's music videos for Slightly Stoopid's "Don't Stop", "No Cocaine", and "The Prophet" garnered him three music video of the year awards from the San Diego Music Awards.[citation needed]

In 2016, Pliskin was chosen by head staffer of the Sanders campaign Robert Volosevich Jr. to photograph and document Presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders.[4]

Pliskin started his film production company, Raised Fist Propaganda,[5] after graduating Hofstra University in 2001.

His lifestyle clothing line followed in 2006 and its opening reception event was hosted at the Etnies Showroom in NYC which featured Pro Skaters of the Supreme/Zoo York Crew.[citation needed]
