Award-winning director Shawn Levy has praised Taylor Swift for her directing skills following the release of her concert film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.” Levy, known for directing films like “Deadpool,” mentioned that while Taylor hasn’t consulted him about upcoming directing projects, she has the potential to be a remarkable director. He described her as a “generational voice and creative force” in the industry.
Taylor Swift has gradually ventured into directing within the entertainment industry. She’s taken more control over her career, which includes directing her own music videos and short films. Levy acknowledged Swift’s profound vision in shaping creative pieces, be it lyrics, melodies, videos, or concert tours. Her work as a director includes music videos like “The Man,” “Bejeweled,” “I Bet You Think About Me,” and the short film “All Too Well.”
Levy drew parallels between Swift and iconic director Steven Spielberg, emphasizing the importance of trusting one’s instinct in filmmaking. Swift’s recent release, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” marks her feature directorial debut with Searchlight Pictures. The presidents of Searchlight Pictures praised her as a “generation artist and storyteller.” This recognition highlights her growing influence in the industry, not only as a musician but also as a director.
