The Motion Sick: The Work of Director Michel Gondry

I just finished watching the DVD Director’s Series, Vol. 3 – The Work of Director Michel Gondry and it had some pretty awesome stuff on it. I’m a really big fan of “camera tricks” especially those associated with confusing the perspective, direction of the film, angle of the shot, or things of that nature.

A lot of the work on the DVD (particularly the music videos, though the interviews and some short films are quite interesting as well) really focuses on these types of ideas. Sometimes, these videos explore a single idea for too long for my tastes and my short attention span gets me, but so much of it is so good. Here are a bunch of his videos (from Youtube so they look absolutely terrible). Do yourself a huge favor and see them on the DVD in decent quality:

Kylie Minogue – Come Into My World

Massive Attack – Protection

Chemical Brothers – Let Forever Be

The White Stripes – The Hardest Button to Button

Daft Punk – Around The World

There are a lot more awesome things on the DVD…
