Perhaps one of the most prolific directors I will mention in this “Music Video Directors May”. Michel Gondry is an acclaimed French director who has always pushed the boundaries of reality and embraced surrealism more than most. His prominent feature films such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “The Science of Sleep” set out to break down limits of reality in interesting and playful ways. This effort translates into the music videos he makes, for which he began doing when he created the promos for the band ‘Oui Oui’, of which he was the drummer back in 1988. Catching the attention of Björk lead to the creation of many surreal and groundbreaking moments in music video creation. Here are some of my favourite.
