Taylor Swift puts a lot of thought into her songs. From the lyrics to how she conceptualizes her music videos, the award-winning musician gives her fans the ultimate experience. Swift likes to drop Easter eggs in her music videos and she occasionally recruits her celebrity friends to take them to the next level. The artist has directed a ton of her music videos, as well, earning awards for “The Man” (2020) and “All Too Well (The Short Film)” (2022). Since 2019, Taylor has pretty much taken the reigns on the direction for her music videos.
Per Billboard, her directorial journey started years before that. In 2010, Swift teamed up with Roman White (director of “You Belong With Me” and “Fifteen” music videos) for the making of “Mine.” Swift has 13 music videos that she self-directed; she’s released five documentaries, three video albums, and a short film.
As we previously reported, Swift said last September, “I’d like to keep taking baby steps forward and I’m at a place now where the next baby step is not a baby step. It would be committing to making a film and I feel like I would absolutely love for the right opportunity to arise, because I absolutely adore telling stories this way.” While at the Toronto Film Festival for her “All Too Well (The Short Film),” she added that she “always want to tell human stories about human emotion.”
