Michel Gondry

Michel Gondry Is a French born director who started by directing music videos for Bjork, Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, Beck, Radiohead, and also The White Stripes. He has so made feature films such as "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", and also produced commercial work for such companies as;Adidas, Air France, BMW, Coca-Cola, Fiat, levi's , nike and Polaroid Cameras. Gondry was also the pioneer of the "bullet time" technique which always thing that would normally be unrecordable slow motion and there for recordable such as a gun shot fire..He produced two Music videos for The White Stripes both times using Stop Motion techniques. here are 2 short videos on how he created the videos for; 

"Fell in Love WIth a Girl" &
"Hardest Button to Button"

In the "Fell In love With a girl" video i thought i was very clever how he used actually Stop Motion lego bricks and digital animation by changing films in to digital lego pixels. 

Also In the "Hardest Button to Button" video I though how he explained how he times his Stop Motion to the music where he added and removed items was very clever.
