Take a quick look through @Kaito’s Instagram feed and you’ll find an array of celebrities that are legendary through their own fields of work. From Diddy to Jay Z, Drake to Diddy, Quavo to Diddy, DJ Khalid to Diddy, A$AP Rocky to Diddy… Diddy makes an appearance a lot because @Kaito is his in-house camera man. And the name behind @Kaito and the one capturing the images? Photographer and now one of Diddy’s creative directors Carlos Araujo.
This Spotlight post is for one of the most successful directors and one of my personal favourites: Christopher Nolan.
What films has he directed?
To name just a few: The Batman trilogy with Christian Bale starring as Batman, Inception, Shutter Island, Memento and Interstellar.
Working with big names and leading actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, and Joseph Gordon Levitt, Nolan’s films are not like most successful Blockbuster movies.
They don’t tap into your typical action films that use conventions like explosions and gunfights just to increase their ticket sales. Nolan’s films are thought-provoking, exciting and innovative. They’re filled with action but their explosions and fighting scenes are minor props when compared to Nolan’s storytelling skills and his vision.
This is going to be the first of many Spotlight posts. In these kind of posts I’ll be shining the spotlight on to different talented creative people from music and film – from directors, to producers, to musicians, to stylists. To not only the people in front of the camera but those behind them, and to not only those on stage but those behind the scenes.
The person behind some of the most popular music videos on the web right now is a lady whose passion for directing and creating visuals that I envy is the talented Hannah Lux Davis.
Who has she worked with??
Time to drop some names: Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Tinashe, Jessie J, Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, Mike.Will.Made.It, Paris Hilton, Jason Derulo, Fifth Harmony, David Guetta and Demi Lovato. And that’s not even all of them.
