Directors Label Directors Label Presentation Transcript

  • THE DIRECTORS LABEL The Directors Label Series highlights the work of the filmmakers who have helped to redefine music videos and filmmaking over the last decade. Each volume in the Directors Label compiles music videos, shorts, commercials, documentaries, as well as a variety of exclusive features, never-before-seen rare footage, and unreleased audio and video commentary. First released in 2003 by Palm Pictures, the series was created by Spike jones, Chris Cunningham, and Michel Gondry, the subjects of the first three volumes. Four new volumes were released in 2005, this time featuring Mark Romanek, Jonathan Glazer, Anton Corbijn and Stephane Sednaoui.
  • MARK ROMANEK • While working with such artists as Johnny Cash, Audioslave, Jay Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Nine Inch Nails, to name but a few, Mark Romanek has directed many of the past decade's most distinctive and iconic music videos. In 1997, Romanek won the MTV Video Vanguard award, and later directed the 2002 hit movie One Hour Photo, starring Robin Williams. • One of his notable videos was for the Nine Inch Nails song “Closer”. Its critical acclaim was only matched by its critical controversy, many accusing the video as being disturbing, demonic and demented – a big reason why the video was so popular among fans.
  • CHRIS CUNNINGHAM • Cunningham’s video for Bjork’s “All Is Full of Love” won multiple awards, including an MTV music video award for Breakthrough Video and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video. It was also the first ever music video to win a Gold Penicl at the D&AD Awards. It can still be seen at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. • Cunningham also directed the video to "Only You” by Portishead, which was released in 1998.
  • MICHEL GONDRY • Gondry is an Academy Award-winning French filmmaker, whose works include being a commerical director, music video director, and a screenwriter. He is noted for his inventive visual style and manipulation of miseen scene. • His career as a filmmaker began with creating music videos for the French rock band Oui Oui, in which he also served as a drummer. The style of his videos for Oui Oui caught the attention of music artist Bjork, who asked him to direct the video for her song “Human Behaviour”. The callaboration proved long-lasting, with Gondry directing a total of eight music videos for Bjork.
  • JONATHAN GLAZER • Glazer directed Jamiroquai’s best known music video, “Virtual Insanity”. At the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards in September 1997, it earned ten nominations, winning four awards, including “Breakthrough Video” and the “Best Video of the Year”. • The song also reached #3 on the UK Singles Chart.
  • SPIKE JONZE • Spike Jonze is an American director, producer, screenwriter and actor, whose work includes music videos, commericals, film and television. • "Praise You" is a song by British big beat musician Fatboy Slim, directed by Jonze. • Jonze also directed the music video of "Da Funk", which is an instrumental track by Daft Punk, initially released as a single in 1995 and later included on their debut album Homework.
