“Woo-Hah!!! Today, we will be talking about the infamous man of the video world.
When Hype Williams started making videos in the 90’s, there was no one who could play with the special effects like him. His special effects and video presentation were really unique compared to what other directors were relying on.
Here, we present you Hype Williams American music video director who is not out of work since 90’s. Most precisely, he specializes in creating high-end music videos. He has directed various stars such as Puff paddy, John Legend, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Beyonce, Lil Wayne and who not. He has even directed Kim Kardashian.
When his eye-catching magnetic musical videos started being popular in 90’s, the time he started his career directing as many as rappers music video as possible, almost every stars pondered about working with Hype.
So, what’s the Hype all about? What’s so unique in his music video?
He simply likes to play with the camera effects. He wants his music videos to be eye catchy and this notion in turn increases his production cost.
For instance, no director back then dared to use Fisheye lens for an entire project, but he did. Not only that, he pioneered various unique effects including placing shots in regular widescreen ratio, backward or forward moving aerial tracking shots, slow motion action, deep focus, smooth cutting, torso upward centre camera focus with illuminated center background and what not.
However, many music critics have criticized the director for his music videos. They say that the director is no longer an innovative one as he now keeps on repeating what he did in the 90’s. Also, many critics have publicly stated that they don’t understand why the director is so obsessed with looks and video effect. Such critics have genuinely suggested that the director should equally prioritize the story/meaning part of his video.
As of 2015, his age is 45. This year he has already directed three hits namely Jennifer Lopez’s “Feel the Light”, Adam Lambert’s “Ghost Town” and P.Daddy Feat Pharrel’s “ Finna get Loose and Jodeci’s Every moment this year.
