OUR FILM ALUMNI

Meet Hannah Lux Davis

Directing can cross many different facets of the entertainment industry, not just film. For Hannah Lux Davis, taking risks catapulted her career. As an award-winning director, Davis has put her stylistic mark on a number of music videos for Billboard Hot 100 songs.

Davis cut her teeth directing music videos for no-name artists she found on Myspace or at music shows and festivals. She got her first big break directing the Love Me music video for Lil Wayne. Since then, she has directed videos for artists like Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Halsey, Hailee Steinfeld, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj—the list goes on.
