I personally like
Nine Inch Nails / The perfect Drug
Marilyn Manson´s Beautiful People was Directed by Floria Sigismondi, very talented director, She and Sam Bayer are one of the finest and best Music Videos Director´s. And of course, same as Marcus Nispel and others.

Im not quite sure, but Michael Bay $ Schwartzman have done some pretty fancy Musical Videos for Guns and Roses when G´N¨R were in vogue, they were with Propaganda Films, they used to do advertising first before jumping into features.

NEW ORDER's "Perfect Kiss" video directed by Jonathan Demme.

It doesn't get any simpler, more elegant, or bad-ass.

Well, in order of simple yet elegant and beautifully crafted, I learned from Rolfe, Sigur Ross videos, are outstanding. I have to check that Perfect Order Video.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the Talking Heads' concert film "Stop making Sense." Jonathan Demme directed with Jordan Cronenweth as DP. Fantastic music, great directing, and inspired cinematography.

I love Mark Romanek's work- particularly "Cochise" by Audioslave and "El Scorcho" by Weezer. And, on the feature length, how can one forget the greatest concert film of all time, "The Last Waltz!"

Wow. I miss music videos. Sure wish they still made them.

I haven't seen one in so long, I'll have to think deep to moments in some videos that really stuck out.

The Bjork Video, "So Quite" where she raises up into the air at the end is still a moment that I'll always remember. Spike Jonze, I think.

Nine Inch Nails, "Hurt" I think. With they wicked snake and that so real that it cool shot of they bird diving 5 feet under water from the fishes POV.

Nine Inch Nails, can't think of the name, with the awesome vintage camera handcranked footage. Not only vintage camera but vintage lens' I think. You have to go all out anddo it right.

I might get a virtual kick in the balls for this one, but Madonna's "Ray of light" has some really cool images. time_lapse is my forte. They even pixelated Madonna to do these weird movements, which is gutsy since you would think vanity would overrule anything clever and cool looking.

How about Twisted Sister's "I want to Rock." That fat dude at the begining loks just like this fat head banger I knew when I was growing up. His name was/is Timothy McVey. Nothing ever went right for that poor kid.

Here's a short list my favorites:

Rammstein - "Sonne"
Aha - "Take On me"
Johnny Cash - "Hurt"
Apocalyptica feat. Nina Hagen - "Seemann"

and I think there's some nice gags (passport photos!) in "Nikita" by Elton John... :D

Cheers, Dave

sorry to hijack this thread, but i am looking for a music video, which features a girl, singing and walking, the steadycam tracking her from the front, and everything around her sometimes moves faster, sometimes slower, they apparently over and undercranked while shooting and adjusting the audio playback, since she's always lipsync!

thanks for any answers, regards from vienna

Hi XiaoSu,

what kind of music is this video you're looking for? Describe the singer etc... Maybe they used composite photography for the walking and inserted backgrounds?

Cheers, Dave

PS: Whereabouts in Vienna are you located?
