The Music Video’s Filmmaker Has Directed Legends Like Madonna And David Bowie
“Shake It Off” was directed by Mark Romanek, who is a legend in the world of music videos. Taylor Swift thought of him while researching music videos with minimalist iconography to the visuals of songs. Romenek famously directed Michael and Janet Jackson for their 1995 “Scream” music video, Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” video, along with working with David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Beck, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash and Madonna. So yeah, like everyone.
