Director X's first foray into installation art 'Death of the Sun' became the centrepiece of prestigious Tornoto art festival Nuit Blanche, and now it has gone on tour with Drake. The large scale mixed media piece is an immersive experience where the observer will witness a massive sculpture of the sun as it progresses through its life cycle. A deeply personal and highly evocative meditation on human mortality and people's individual place in the universe, this installation portrays the death of the star that sustains this planet.
Alexander Wang's squad comes together in the Luti Media produced promo for his Fall 2016 campaign, directed by Director X. The spot features Kylie Jenner, Skrillex, Tyga, Zoe Kravitz, Big Sean, and many more familiar faces.
Wang's references for the irreverent videos include the 80's classic 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' and the teen comedy 'Can't Hardly Wait.' Of his choice of cast, Wang said 'A lot of [the cast] are people that I've always really respected, collaborators, or models I've used for quite a long time, where I've seen them grow into their own.'
The crew gets wild in a palatial Beverly Hills mansion and dances to new music by Skrillex, created exclusively for Wang. Director X seamlessly blends high fashion, hip hop and pop culture in the indulgent and wildly entertaining visual.

The music video for 'Hotline Bling,' Directed by Luti Media's Director X, was just released and it has taken over all social media platforms! From the original video to parodies, dub remakes, GIFs, and memes. People cannot get enough of Drake's interesting choice of choreography.
Director X expresses in multiple interviews that this is the exact reason behind all the attraction. Drake's dance moves were a huge part in planning the success of this video and not a coincidence at all.
X and Drake's keyword to the entire video was 'fun'--the result? Drake hitting that cha-cha and X's brilliant hot pink color scheme. What's more fun than dancing like nobody is watching? Ironically, the entire world is watching and loving every minute.
