Timothy Saccenti is a photographer and director who’s been doing some impressive, meticulous work in the music world. His beginnings in photography have lead him down a path crowded with artists like TV on the Radio, Erykah Badu, The Rapture, Grandmaster flash, and Black Mountain.
Directing music videos was a natural turn for Saccenti and though he may still be a photographer at heart, he’s been extra alluring lately with his motion work. His videos for Jamie Lidell’s “Another Day” and Battles’ “Atlas” are the fantastical works of an artist who has both clear vision and technical mastery at his disposal.

Saccenti and I recently chatted about his process, gaining people’s trust, the cautions of making videos for commercialized songs, and our mutual love for the film “Bladerunner.” That’s up tomorrow, first check out some of his work (including those linked above).
Read the interview now posted here!
Here’s his brand new video for Chairlift’s, “Bruises.”
And the wonderfully jacked, “Peacebone” for Animal Collective.
