The DVD compilation features nearly three hours of videos and behind-the-scenes content and videos from artists like Paul McCartney, Beck, The White Stripes, Radiohead, Bjork and many more! Due to time constraints, signing is limited to only the new DVD title.
Michel Gondry began his filmmaking career directing music videos for such artists as The White Stripes, The Rolling Stones, Beck, and Daft Punk. In 2001, Gondry made his feature-film directorial debut, Human Nature, from a screenplay by Charlie Kaufman. After working with Kaufman again on the Academy Award-winning Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Gondry went on to write and direct the films The Science of Sleep and Be Kind Rewind, and helm the documentary concert film Dave Chappelle’s Block Party. DVD collections of Gondry’s exemplary music videos and commercials were released in 2003 and 2009. He has recently authored a guide for DIY filmmaking entitled You’ll Like This Film Because You’re In It: The Be Kind Rewind Protocol and a comic book “We Lost the War but Not the Battle,” available through Gondry’s website, michelgondry.com. Gondry’s documentary, The Thorn in the Heart, premiered at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and was acquired by Oscilloscope Laboratories for release. He is about to begin production on The Green Hornet, a feature film about the iconic superhero that will star Seth Rogen, to be released in 2010 by Columbia Pictures.
