In the early 1990’s my career was inspired and motivated by music video’s, directors like David Fincher and Samuel Bayer. But one director who I believe broke the mold is Mark Romanek.
Along the way, the Grammy winner has been behind some of the world’s most famous–and infamous–videos. On the groundbreaking side, there’s Lenny Kravitz’s exhilarating “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” which made the musician a star in one fell swoop. On the controversial side, there’s Fiona Apple’s teasing “Criminal,” Jay-Z’s apocalyptic “99 Problems and “Nine Inch Nails‘ macabre “Closer,” It is one of only two that the Museum of Modern Art has added to its permanent collection.
So, I noticed that there has not been a collage of his notable music video work so I decided to make one. I hope you enjoy it. We received an email from Mr. Romanek and he thought the edit was very well done and he is very flattered.
