Michel Gondry is a bit of an imaginative wizard when it comes to art directed music videos, pretty much putting together some of the most famous music videos of the last two decades (White Stripes, Radiohead, Foo Fighters' "Everlong", Bjork, etc). He has made feature films like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Science of Sleep" that follow on this DIY, handmade visual effect style, and his new music video for Metronomy's "Love Letters" fits the bill, albeit with a little more set painting...

Michel Gondry, who has directed some of our favorite films and music videos (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) is releasing a unique animated documentary on the life of controversial MIT professor, philosopher, linguist, anti-war activist and political firebrand Noam Chomsky.Through complex, lively conversations with Chomsky and brilliant illustrations by Gondry himself, the film reveals the life and work of the father of modern linguistics while also exploring his theories on the emergence of language.

We had heard this film was in production, but forgot about it until yesterday when we saw a new trailer for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo." Looks like the French filmmaker is back to creating the more whimisical, creative, and surreal fantasy worlds of some of his best films (Eternal Sunshine, Science of Sleep). Remember when we did a photoshoot with our Petit Gondry a few years back to coincide with our interview with Grand Gondry? That was fun. Now watch the trailer...
