  • Mirrorball series
  • Autuer in music video

    1. 1. Tim Burton What films do you know directed by Tim Burton? How would you describe his films? What do they have in common?
    2. 2. Auteur theory Auteur Theory suggests that a director can use the commercial apparatus of film-making in the same way that a writer uses a pen or a painter uses paint and a paintbrush. It is a medium for the personal artistic expression of the director. The film theoretician, André Bazin, explained that: auteur theory was a way of choosing the personal factor in artistic creation as a standard of reference, and then assuming that it continues and even progresses from one film to the next.
    3. 3. Music video Directors can be auteurs. The platform can allow for more creative, artistic expression than film making. Auteurs may use the medium to showcase a distinct style, repetition of themes, iconography (symbolic codes), technical codes, and contributing music artists in their work. You should be able to draw clear connections between their work, much like you can with Tim Burton.
    4. 4. Chris Cunningham http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Az_7U0-cK0 – ‘Come to Daddy’ Aphex Twin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XS088Opj9o0 – ‘Frozen’ Madonna http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohDDxCdm9Oo – ‘Only you’ Portishead Watch the videos. What themes immerge in his work? What codes and conventions does he employ?
    5. 5. Working independently • Jonathan Glazer (Enid, Chloe ) • Spike Jonze (Ryan, Mujo) • Michel Gondry (Kenya, Fatima) • Hype Williams (Troy, Brandon) • Floria Sigismondi (Sulieman, Indiya) You will create a case study on your chosen Director. • Find and evidence (screen grab, annotate, analyse and compare) 3 music videos that showcase the Auteur theory. • Use micro and macro analysis to identify and analyse the themes in their work. • Look for the ‘mirror ball’ series on you tube for interviews with the director and examples of work. Do they have any specific inspirations? • Have they moved into film? Can you see a correlation between their music video and film work? • What kind of music artists and genres do they work with?
