On-Set Footage of Steven Spielberg directing JURASSIC PARK.

I particularly like the parts where he’s talking to Dean Cundey, the D.P. and where he’s blocking the actors.

This reminds me of the TV show Movie Magic which I used to watch religiously on Discovery channel in the 90’s. That and the time during freshman or sophomore year of high school my graphic design class all watched the making of Jurassic Park (on laserdisc!). At the time I was more into 3d animation, but I swear at that moment I was set on wanting to work for Pixar or doing 3d stuff for movies after we watched it.

Of course now you realize doing 3d animation for like a James Cameron or Michael Bay movie isn’t nowhere near as glamorous or just fun as you thought it was when you’re 16. So I’m glad to have switched career paths. But to this day though, I’ll still watch the shit out of a behind-the-scenes featurette of any given movie.

Mark Romanek Music Video Career Tribute
from Del Padre Digital

The art of the music video. The 90’s were some great times for some brilliant directors and future auteurs. You can say that the music video peaked when John Landis did “Thriller”, but the 90’s was its “French New Wave”. David Fincher, Chris Cunningham, Spike Jonze, Tamra Davis, Jonathan Glazer, Michel Gondry, and Mark Romanek were some of the best of its class. (Shoutouts to F. Gary Gray, Hype Williams, and Brett Ratner!)

ED. NOTE: It’s doubtful if the music video will regain its artistic cred in this decaying music industry. Not that there aren’t any good videos now, but the outlet for them (MTV) has lost its validity and have made music videos less and less eventful. Of course, the internet has become the solution to that problem, but save for a few (“Runaway”, dudes with 7D’s and RED cameras, La Blogotheque, Richard Ayoade) the efforts aren’t always there, nor the ambition. I am glad though that there are directors like Vincent Moon and the whole La Blogotheque scene to advance the music video art form. If Romanek, et al. were the New Wave, then these guys are the Bela Tarrs, Van Sants, Wong Kar-Wais, etc. Here’s to more music videos.
