The grandson of an inventor, the son of a creative artist - this is a relatively precise picture of Michel Gondry before he shot to fame with The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. From amateur beginnings, which included drumming with the band Oui Oui, his worked his way up to become, according to The New York Times, "most sought-after music video director on Earth". Almost all of his videos introduced new techniques. With the Rolling Stones, he tried "overflowing" pictures between two perspective angles (Like a Rolling Stone). For Bjork he tells a story within a story (Bachelorette) and for the White Stripes, he projected past events on the walls of an apartment (Dead Leaves & Dirty Ground). He has also matched music to the visual rhythm of buildings and landscape (The Chemical Brothers), used masked dancers (Daft Punk) and found surprising visual parallels in repetitive lyrics (Kylie Minogue). He is one of today's most creative pop-cultural authors and his ideas are so original that mimics can only struggle to reproduce his effects. In 2004 Gondry, with director Spike Jonze and designer Chris Cunningham, founded Directors Label. The company publishes the collections of top videomakers such as Anton Corbijn and Jonathan Glazer. Gondry says the popularity of his videos boosted the success of The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And no wonder - the British magazine Mojo named his collection the best video DVD of all time.
