Hype Williams to be Honored at Lincoln Center

hype.jpgGroundbreaking music video director Hype Williams will be honored tonight at New York’s Lincoln Center with a 90-minute presentation titled Believe the Hype: An Auteur Study of Hype Williams—The Best Who Ever Did It. The retrospective is being presented by Armond White, film critic for the New York Press, and is part Lincoln Center’s Scanners: 2006 New York Video Festival. During the program, White will explore Williams’ early work, career highlights and his award-winning work with artists such as Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes. White will also take a look at the director’s split-screen montage that has become his new signature style. Williams made his directorial debut with Wu-Tang Clan’s 1994 video for “Can It All Be So Simple” and went on to become the premier music video director in hip-hop in the late ’90s.
