On episode 11 of Art Pays Me, I speak with Grammy nominated, MTV Award and Cannes Lions Award winning Director, Andy Hines about how he went from making videos for clients in Nova Scotia to directing music videos for ASAP Mob and how that gave him the industry credibility to work with other big artists.
Andy shares his philosophy around the importance of making good work, making a lot of it, putting yourself in front of people and how the internet has made it possible to have a big reach even if you live in a small city.
Andy spills the tea on whether it’s more difficult to work with celebrity artists or mom and pop shops. We talk about what it means to write a film treatment.
We also got personal and discussed how finding life partners and becoming dads improved things for us both personally and professionally.
