Director, Writer, Creative Director
Purposeful, Spirited & Visionary
Before partnering with WHTWRKS as a Creative Director, Writer & Director, Hastings garnered national and industry attention for his work shooting and designing an unprecedented number of album covers for some of the biggest names in the music industry. Danny has worked alongside artists as diverse as P. Diddy, Taylor Momsen, Marc Anthony, Jodeci, Wu-Tang, Eminem, KRS One, Jay-Z, Tribe Called Quest and Jeru tha Damaja to name a few. Utilizing his rolodex and personal expertise of cinematography (studied at NYU), the young sage began directing music videos, commercial, short films and feature films soon after. Branded content is also a core strength of Danny’s. He has executed numerous pieces for brands such as NASCAR, Sprint, Samsung, MTV, DraftKings just to name a few. In 2015, Hastings started the annual Official Latino Film Festival to provide opportunities to Latinx filmmakers and actors in the U.S. due to the lack of representation of his community in film and TV. He was able to land a partnership with HBO, Verizon Media and DIAGEO for the festival. With more than fifteen years servicing the Music, TV and Entertainment industry with iconic visuals, Hastings has managed to touch some of the most popular projects of the two decade. Ranging from Photography to Directing a Motion Picture Movie, the elements found in his work are the true reflection of the diverse American Culture of today.
