Director X

Film & Music Video Director,
Director X
An internship in television at the “Nation’s music station” MuchMusic in Canada shifted my interest from illustrations to music video. I finished school and got an internship in New York City at Big Dog Films under the eye of director Hype Williams. Hype was doing the work that was changing the world. Hip Hop shinned with his direction, new stars were born. The world took notice. I was there drawing storyboards

During my internship, and storyboard artist time as Big Dog I focused on learning filmmaking. I read every book I could get my hands on. At the same time I was building relationships with Hype’s clients. First running packages to their office, later as “Hype’s storyboard guy”. It was hip hop and R&B labels Def Jam Records an Bad Boy Records that gave me my first few shot and eventually my break.

Music videos give the most freedom to the director of all the motion pictures arts. The director if left to work freely. They create the concept and see it through to the end. I take that freedom and run. I am very with art direction, lighting, wardrobe, make-up, hair, pre-production, and post production. I et my team work and guide the process, all the while correcting to my vision and pushing for excellence.

Music video is street ball. It moves fast with less money, less rules, less time and lots of passion. I use my street name i make it: Director X. Music video’s are street. This is where you will learn the new dance, see the new fashion and the new ways. It’s the voice of the people.
