Michel Gondry

Michel Gondry is one of my favorite Music Directors and I just found out that he has written and illustrated a comic book titled We Lost the War but not the Battle. The story is packed with everything from death to friendship and guns to Mia Farrow. Check out his webpage at

Here is a brief biography of the people that Michel has worked with.

Michel Gondry was born in Versailles, France. His career as a filmmaker began with creating music videos for the Frenchrock band Oui Oui, in which he also served as a drummer. The style of his videos for Oui Oui caught the attention of music artist Björk, who asked him to direct the video for her song "Human Behaviour". The collaboration proved long-lasting, with Gondry directing a total of seven music videos for Björk. Other artists who have collaborated with Gondry on more than one occasion include Daft PunkThe White StripesThe Chemical BrothersThe VinesSteriogram,Radiohead, and Beck. Gondry has also created numerous television commercials. He pioneered the "bullet time" technique later adapted in The Matrix,[1]
