This week we began looking at the work of famous Auteurs such as David Fincher and Micheal Gondry. 

I focused on award-winning Michael Gondry today and found out a lot about his various progressions in the music video industry. I found it really interesting to learn about how Michel Gondry became a director, and thought it was interesting to look into how his personal interests may affect the styles used in his work.

Gondry started off as a drummer, in a French rockband until he was 'scouted' by worldwide artist Bjork. He went on to work for companies such as MTV and directed many A list artists videos, and also worked with equally famous music video auteur, Chris Cunningham.

I think it is really valuable to learn about how and why these directors became who they did, and this has helped me to understand how a director establishes a certain style.
