Andy learned to see life through a lens due to the influence of his photographer father. After receiving his Masters in directing from The American Film Institute, Hines transitioned into directing music videos and commercials. He caught his first break in the industry with A$AP Yams, making his first music video in the driveway of his house the very next day. Hines' video for Big Sean's One Man Can Change The World featuring Kanye West and John Legend won Best Video With a Social Message at the 2015 MTV Awards. In 2016, he was awarded three Cannes Lions for his work with J.W.T. New York and TriBeCa Film Festival. In 2017, Andy’s video for Logic’s song 1-800-273-8255 was nominated for Best Video of The Year at the 2017 Grammy Awards. That video went on to win a Gold Lion at Cannes. Recently, Andy has been working on motivating and motivating the creative youth of his home province, Nova Scotia.
