Visionary directors Floria Sigismondi and Andrew Thomas Huang have directed iconic music videos from top name artists ranging from Katy Perry to Bjork. These two multi-hyphenated artists made their mark in the music video world and successfully transitioned to the narrative space, all while keeping their own unique voices. That’s all to say: this is the perfect opportunity to ask questions about elevating your career, evolving your creative process, and nurturing your individual style.
Floria Sigismondi is a world-renowned creator of film, music videos, branded content, photography, and art. Her signature enigmatic style incorporates the ethereal and the mysterious, the whimsical and the grotesque, always commanding profound aesthetic elements to illuminate story. Floria’s directing runs the impressive gamut of iconic music videos for David Bowie, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and The White Stripes, to her feature debut “The Runaways,” starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning, and most recently, “The Turning.”
With a background in fine art, visual effects, puppetry, and animation, LA-based filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang crafts hybrid worlds rooted in folklore and spiritual realism. His list of collaborators include Bjork, Radiohead's Thom Yorke and FKA Twigs for whom Huang is Grammy-nominated for his fantasy epic "Cellophane." His films and videos have been commissioned by and exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, The Sydney Opera House and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. With his strength in world-building, Huang continues his foray into narrative with his first feature film TIGER GIRL.
