Joseph Kahn
Joseph Kahn (born as Ahn Jun-hee) is a
Korean American music video and film
director.
Throughout his active career spanning
from 1990 to the present day, he has
been known to work closely with a
variety of artists such as:
• Lady Gaga
• Maroon 5
• Taylor Swift
• Eminem
• Britney Spears
• Katy Perry
Early
Life/Biography
Joseph Kahn spent the beginning of
his childhood in Pusan, South Korea
as well ass in Livorno, Italy. When he
turned three however the moved
again to Houston, Texas. Here is
interest in directing music videos
grew in his teens, shooting music
videos with local bands. After
graduating high school, Kahn went to
New York University’s Tisch School of
the Arts. After a year and-a-half he
dropped out to pursue directing.
Two years later, Kahn had been part
of a variety of low budget music
videos, serving as a cinematographer,
editor and production designer.
A hint at some of Kahn’s work:
Music Video Career
In 1999, Kahn formed his own production company, SuperMega
Media, housed under HSI Productions.
He became highly sought, working with hundreds of artists; U2, Katy
Perry, The Chemical Brothers, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Blink 182,
Eminem, Wu-Tang Clan, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Mariah
Carey, Aerosmith, Faith Hill, Moby, Jamiroquai, Justin Timberlake,
George Michael, Kelly Clarkson, Janet Jackson, Black Eyed Peas,
Beyoncé, as well as many others.
Today he is credited with launching and expanding the careers of
many of his artists, and has collected multiple Music Video
Production awards. He has won several MTV Music Video
Awards with nominations for best video for Brandy & Monica “The
Boy is Mine”, and Britney Spears “Toxic.” He won his first Grammy for
Eminem’s “Without Me” video which also won the MTV VMA’s Best
Video of the Year, as well as Best Director. His video for Muse
“Knights of Cydonia” won the Los Angeles Film Festival Audience
Award. Katy Perry’s “Waking Up in Vegas” won the MVPA Video of the
Year.
Style
The reason I chose to look into Kahn is that a few of the
music videos he directed are some of my favourite songs
and music videos, such as the explosive music video to
“Bad Blood”, making him someone to invest interest in.
Through watching some of the music videos that I didn’t
realise he directed, like “Toxic”, and comparing them to
others I’ve seemed to notice a very bright, lively and
exciting style within his work. The mise-en-scene seems to
bouncy and avoid dull moments.
This overall ‘fun’ is what I would like myself and Dan to
achieve in our music video
