In my conversation with Hollywood director Hannah Lux Davis back in March 2016, she told me that her biggest project yet was “Bang Bang” by Jessie J featuring Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. She said that the magnitude of the video was big since the audio and visuals were being released the same day.
Hannah never stops going harder. Her resume so far has major acts, from Lil Wayne to Demi Lovato to Calvin Harris. In an interview with MTV, she admitted that growing up, she was addicted to music videos — especially pop music, think Britney Spears, Nsync and Backstreet Boys. When she grew older, she became more practical.
“In high school, I started messing around with editing in iMovie and Final Cut on my Mac computer. I would shoot videos on my little handheld video camera and cut the images to [playlists] I made. I would download music videos and cut them together in montages with different music. I’d study each frame of a video and figure out how they made the cut points to the music,” Hannah revealed in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan.
Well, the power girl has went on to work on some of the best music videos last year. These include Ariana Grande’s “Side To Side” featuring Nicki Minaj, Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too”, DNCE’s “Body Moves”, Tinashe’s “Super Love” and “Good Things” by Camilla Cabello and Machine Gun Kelly.
Just a few days ago, Hannah teased that she had worked with Ender’s Game actress Hailee Steinfield and Machine Gun Kelly for their collaboration.
This is after breaking the biggest news so far this year! She directed the recent G-Eazy x Kehlani music video, “Good Life” which is part of the Fast & Furious 8 album. The video is an simply epic. Shot in the New York scene (just like “Bang Bang”), the video features cut outs from the upcoming film. It has cameo appearances from Ludacris, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood, Jason Statham, among others.
The references to the film show high octane racing scenes as well as chilled out, sunny, calm, beautiful shots of the cast having a good time — much to the success of the video. At the time of this publication, the video has an impressive 9 million views in just slightly over a week since its release.
Again, Hannah Lux Davis is winning big. Check out the video:
