About Mark Romanek
Award-winning director Mark Romanek crosses adeptly between commercials, music videos and feature films. His artistically poignant work has gained critical and commercial acclaim across the advertising and entertainment worlds.
Romanek worked alongside David Fincher, Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry – the next generation of filmmakers who crossed over from 30-second spots and three-minute promos into the fertile feature ground of Hollywood.
Romanek’s music videos have received numerous awards, including over two-dozen MTV awards, three Grammys, a Country Music Association Award, and three Billboard Music awards. Two of Romanek’s music videos have become part of the permanent collection of New York’s museum of modern art.
He has three films to his name so far: Static with Keith Gordan, One Hour Photo starring a dark and twisted Robin Williams and recent release Never Let Me Go with young actors Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield. He has got to work with some of the greatest artists of a generation including Iggy Pop (‘Beside You’), Madonna (‘Rain’) and Jonny Cash (‘Hurt’) to name just a few; of course his most famous music video is ‘Scream’ with Michael and Janet Jackson, which the Guinness Book of World Records has as the most expensive music video ever made.
