Julien Christian Lutz (born October 31, 1975), better known as Little X, X or Director X, is a Canadian music video director. He also has his own clothing line X Fit. He was born and raised near Toronto, Ontario,[1] and is of Trinidadian and Swiss descent.

Music videos[edit]

Julien Christian Lutz attended both Mayfield Secondary School and North Park Secondary School in Brampton, Ontario.[citation needed] A protégé of Hype Williams,[1] X has been noted for his high-budget, visually distinctive music videos for popular music singles, including videos for The Wanted, R. Kelly, Usher, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Korn, David Guetta, Nelly Furtado, Sean Paul, Justin Bieber, Drake, Nicki Minaj, T.I., Little Mix, Rihanna, Union J, Fifth Harmony, and Iggy Azalea. He is currently represented by Luti Media. In 2015, Director X founded his own production company, Creative Soul in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

His trademark is tweaking the letterbox format; instead of just using black bars on the top and bottom of the frame to frame the image, many videos by X actually feature the bars opening vertically or horizontally to reveal the video and closing vertically or horizontally at the end, like a letter box.[2]
