Palm Video's Director's Label series compiles the short-form work of some of the most innovative names in music videos, advertisements, and short films -- some of whom have gone on to even greater success in features. Though he might be best known for his video collaborations with Björk, director Michel Gondry got his start playing drums in the French pop band Oui Oui, before his clips for the band's songs started garnering him more attention as a filmmaker than as a musician. From there, he went on to direct award-winning commercials, short films, and countless videos for bands the likes of the White Stripes, Foo Fighters, and Daft Punk, many of which are collected on The Work of Director Michel Gondry. Also included are interviews of the artists with whom Gondry has collaborated. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide

The Work of Director Michel Gondry by DFarrar August 8, 2006 - 1:39 PM PDT
"Deadweight" is one of the most amazing music videos of all time, directed by Michel (pronounced Mee-shell, not My-kel). This DVD is a collection of his work, including the Foo Fighters "Everlong" video, several of Bjork's videosl, among others. It also contains (iirc) six or eight little film shorts, a copule of which are commercials (Smirnoff and Polaroid, both brilliant). Those are delightful. Really delightful.

By far the most wonderful part of the collection is the information about Michel himself, "I've always been 12," which goes through his creative process, complete with interviews with him, the musicians, and even his mom.

The whole thing is so very much worth the ride.
