Favorite Music Video Directors: Michel Gondry
I made a little YouTube playlist featuring my top ten music videos from one of my favorite music video directors, Michel Gondry. These are in chronological order and span the years 1993-2002. He also directed "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".
MixtressRae's Top Three:
* Hyperballad // Bjork
* Sugar Water // Cibo Matto
* Around the World // Daft Punk
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with music videos. They combine two of my favorite things: music and, urm, videos. Just like any art format, they can depict anything, but the format of putting a visual to a song lends itself to more surreal imagery. You can tell a huge story in a short time while still keeping it vague. A music video doesn't have to make sense. Michel Gondry doesn't make sense. What's your favorite Michel Gondry music video? Here's a list of all the videos he has directed.
