Music Video Director to Film

Postby sleepflower on Sat Jul 08, 2006 1:47 am

Now considering Michel Gondry made an amazing job of eternal sunshine and Mark Romanek with one hour photo (Loved his NIN work), which Music Promo Director that HAVENT yet made a film, would you like to see working on a feature, and what project would you like to see them tackle?


Floria Sigismondi tackling Alice in Wonerland, or Hansel and Grettel.

I think EVERYBODY wants to see Chris Cunningham making a Sci-Fi, Horror, or Sci-fi/Horror-flick!

I would like to see Zoran Bihac making something Gondry-like.

Interesting choice for Alice. I take it you're thinking of her treatment for The White Stripes Blue Orchid video? That would be cool. Marcus Nispel is already set to do the American McGee version though.

How about Chris Cunningham? Amazingly creative and dark bloke with a HUGE amount of skill and knowledge of the medium having worked in pretty much every aspect of a films creative processes. He was supposed to do an adaptation of Neuromancer but that fell through (which is a damn shame) but his version of Jeff Noon's Vurt I could see being superb...

Marcus Nispel eh? Need to look him up. I haven't checked on the Alice film for a few months or so.

Cunningham is good, nice ideas, though from his DVD I get the feeling he messes up a little and most things get done in post. Still, if he pulls off a good story I will be there to see it.

Yeah I was thinking of Blue Orchidd for the Hans christien anderson stuff.

If Cunningham directed a sci fi/horror movie in the style of his Aphex Twin videos, then we'd be in for one hell of a scary time. Windowlicker and Come To Daddy are genuinely way-out and brilliant videos.

Imagine David Cronenberg would write the screenplay for a Chris Cunningham-Film :D

Mike Mills who did the AIR videos could do something crazy with David Bowie. That man needs a new film.

I think Mike Mills directed his first feature 'Thumbsucker', which came out in the US last year, but went straight to video most other places - anyone in the states catch it?


Gondry's first film was actually 'Human Nature', which despite also having a script by Charlie Kaufman, was pretty dire - loved eternal Sunshine, though.

Your knowledge is scary, yet eternaly useful. Will hunt down the Mills film.

Is the Gondry one so bad it's not worth a look, or has it got a few interesting points, script or visual cleverness?

It's one of these "Love it or hate it"-flicks. You will buy the DVD after you watched it or it's your personal worst film ever.

I really didn't like rubber johnny though, so I hope he doesn't go all self indulgent, I guess a producer would put a stop to that anyway.

Anymore info on the new vid pro?

good tune.

Oh how I wanna make Samantha shake, preferably whilst I'm between her nethers.

Cunningham, for the longest time, was William Gibson's preferred director for Neuromancer, but the project is apparently dead :cry:.
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

Actually I kid of liked it, but can't bring myself to call it good. It has a lot of Gondry's visual cleverness, but also some really lame cgi mice, and its a film that's just bristling with good ideas, it's very remniscent of 'Being Jon Malkovitch' at times - it's worth a look, but a logically progressing narrative is something you won't find here. Also I feel I have to warn you, seeing Patricia Arquette with gorilla levels of blonde body hair is not a pleasant experience, and the image is hard to get out of your mind.


-I preferred the original ending in Kaufman's script for Eternal Sunshine over the one Gondry shot for the movie.

Will track down the original ending, my friend Anna is a big fan. If someone can sum it up here though that would be cool, unless it is too long or complicated.

As to the other film, I can look past bad CGI, though gorilla hair is outta the question *shiver*. Will definitlely give it a watch. I did love being John Malkovitch.

I found it it on JoBlo.com - It's not radically different, but its a definite science fiction ending as opposed to the one in the movie; if anything I found it sadder than the film... and say hi to your fascinating friend Anna
