AD 40 | Grant Singer
"A Filmmaker's Journey"





Grant Singer is a filmmaker who has quickly become one of today’s most in demand music video directors. In July 2015 Stereogum named him "the best music video director in the world." He has directed numerous music videos for The Weeknd, Skrillex, Future, Ariana Grande, Rae Sremmurd, J. Balvin & Pharrell, Vic Mensa & Kanye West, Sky Ferreira, Ariel Pink, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Phantogram, Tobias Jesso Jr., and Foxygen among others.

In 2016 Grant was selected in the prestigious Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase at the Cannes Lions. Grant was nominated for best music video director at Berlin’s VMA 2015 for "Dazed Inn Daydreams” and was recently included in an exhibit at The Photographer's Gallery in London, which featured the most visionary music video directors working today.

Show Notes:
  • Films being undeniably good or bad
  • Outsiders, counter cultures, and authenticity
  • Music videos being a conduit for experimenting and preparing for independent and feature film making
  • Evoking tone and feeling in music video directing
  • Being disconnected from technology helping him stay focused and grounded

About

"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self, and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists.

This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own minds. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside.

My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic.

When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”.

In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art."
