Hype Williams has earnt his living by directing music videos and films for artists such notorious B.I.G, jay-Z and kanye West. 

What makes a hype williams video: hype williams videos will be colourful, meaningful, modern and he willl usually use a fish eye lens which will distort the camera view around the main focus. A signature style used by Williams throughout the vast majority of his videos (shot mostly with cinematographer John Perez) was the Fisheye lens which distorted the camera view around the central focus. This was used by the tandem Williams/Perez in "Gimme Some More" by Busta Rhymes and "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" by Missy Elliott; however, it was dropped by 2003, when he experienced his lowest level of production activity since the beginning of his career as a music video director.
