Gondry in 2008

Gondry's vision and career began with his emphasis on emotion. Much of his inspiration, he says, came from the film Le voyage en ballon. He stated: "When I watch this movie, I dream I'm flying and then I do stories where people are flying. I think it's directly influencing."[3] His career as a filmmaker began with creating music videos for the French rock band Oui Oui, in which he also served as a drummer. The style of his videos for Oui Oui caught the attention of music artist Björk, who asked him to direct the video for her song "Human Behaviour". The collaboration proved long-lasting, with Gondry directing a total of eight music videos for Björk.[citation needed] Other artists who have collaborated with Gondry on more than one occasion include Daft Punk, The White Stripes, The Chemical Brothers, The Vines, Steriogram, Radiohead, and Beck. Gondry’s video for Lucas Secon's "Lucas with the Lid Off" was nominated in the Best Music Video (short form) category at the 37th Grammy Awards,[4] (one of two Gondry music videos nominated that year along with Sinéad O'Connor's Fire On Babylon). Gondry has also created numerous television commercials. He pioneered the "bullet time" technique later adapted in The Matrix
The Matrix
in the 1996 "Smarienberg" commercial for Smirnoff
Smirnoff
vodka, as well as directing a trio of inventive holiday-themed advertisements for clothing retailer Gap.[5][6] Gondry, along with directors Spike Jonze
Spike Jonze
and David Fincher, is representative of the influx of music video directors into feature film. Gondry made his feature film debut in 2001 with Human Nature, garnering mixed reviews. His second film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (also his second collaboration with screenwriter Charlie Kaufman), was released in 2004 and received very favorable reviews, becoming one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year.[citation needed] Eternal Sunshine utilizes many of the image manipulation techniques that Gondry had experimented with in his music videos. Gondry won an Academy Award alongside Kaufman and Pierre Bismuth
Pierre Bismuth
for the screenplay of Eternal Sunshine. The style of Gondry's music videos often relies on videography and camera tricks which play with frames of reference.[citation needed] Gondry also directed the musical documentary Dave Chappelle's Block Party (2006) which followed comedian Dave Chappelle
Dave Chappelle
as he attempted to hold a large, free concert in the Bedford-Stuyvesant
Bedford-Stuyvesant
neighborhood of Brooklyn. His following film, The Science of Sleep, hit theaters in September 2006. This film stars Mexican actor Gael García Bernal, and marked a return to the fantastical, surreal techniques he employed in Eternal Sunshine.[citation needed] According to the Guinness World Records
Guinness World Records
2004, Gondry's Levi's
Levi's
501 Jeans "Drugstore" spot holds the record for "Most awards won by a TV commercial".[7] The commercial was never aired in North America because of the suggestive content involving purchasing latex condoms. He was asked by French comic duet Éric and Ramzy to direct Seuls Two, but declined; by his suggestion, Éric and Ramzy subsequently asked Mr Oizo to direct another movie, Steak.[8] In September 2006, Gondry made his debut as an installation artist at Deitch Projects in New York City's SoHo
SoHo
gallery district. The show, called "The Science of Sleep: An Exhibition of Sculpture and Pathological Creepy Little Gifts" featured props from his film, The Science of Sleep, as well as film clips and a selection of gifts that the artist had given to women he was interested in, many of them former or current collaborators, Karen Baird, Kishu Chand, Dorothy Barrick and Lauri Faggioni.[9] A leitmotif of the film is a 'Disastrology' calendar; Gondry commissioned the painter Baptiste Ibar to draw harrowing images of natural and human disasters.[10] His brother Olivier "Twist" Gondry is also a television commercial and music video director creating videos for bands such as The Stills, Hot Hot Heat, Daft Punk
Daft Punk
and The Vines.[11] Michel's son Paul Gondry is an artist, actor, and film director as well.[12] Gondry was an Artist in Residence at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2005 and 2006. Later directing the music video for the Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney
song "Dance Tonight", in which Gondry makes a cameo appearance.[13] Gondry directed "Unnatural Love", the fifth episode in season two of HBO's Flight of the Conchords.[14] Interior Design one third of the 2008 anthology film Tokyo!
Tokyo!
was next for Gondry. Interior Design was based on the comic book "Cecil and Jordan in New York" by Gabrielle Bell but was adapted from New York City to Tokyo for the film.[citation needed] In 2009, The Thorn in the Heart, another feature documentary, was released, it is about Michel's aunt Suzette and her son Jean-Yves. In 2011, Gondry directed The Green Hornet, a superhero film by Sony starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou
Jay Chou
and Christoph Waltz; Rogen co-wrote the script. In 2011, he was the head of the jury for the short film competition at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.[15] His film The We and the I
The We and the I
was selected to be screened in the Directors' Fortnight
Directors' Fortnight
section at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.[16][17] On 3 January 2013, Gondry released his latest animated short Haircut Mouse on his official Vimeo
Vimeo
channel.[18] In February 2013, Gondry released a hand-drawn animated documentary on famed linguist Noam Chomsky, Is the Man Who is Tall Happy?.[19] In 2014, he was selected as a member of the jury for the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.[20] On 23 January 2013, Gondry was confirmed to have produced the video for Metronomy's upcoming single, Love Letters, as it was named Zane Lowe's Hottest Record in the World.[citation needed] Filmography[edit] Film[edit]
