Michael Gondry admits he SUCKS!

LOL I'm exaggerating the story, but he admits he has "Bad Luck" with Music Videos. The Article below

“I have the shit touch,” Michel Gondry says. “When I touch a song, it plummets.” Gondry, who just released “Michel Gondry 2,” a second DVD collection of his music videos, is only partly joking. “Every time an artist asks me to do a video, I want to warn, ‘If you do the video with me, it will be a failure.’ ” For example? “I did seven videos for Björk, and the only one she ever did that was a huge hit, Spike Jonze directed it,” says Gondry. “And with the White Stripes, I did six videos with them and the only video they did that was a huge hit, I didn’t do it. It was ‘Seven Army Nation,’ and that was some other French guys.” His effect on the Rolling Stones was even more devastating. “I did a video for them and then they turned 60,” he said. Gondry’s next project is Seth Rogen’s adaptation of The Green Hornet; movie observers have raised an eyebrow about giving a big-budget superhero action flick to a director whose last two movies, The Science of Sleep and Be Kind Rewind, featured papier-mâché props and cardboard sets. “It makes me think, ‘Okay, I will never do a single thing with cardboard. Ever again,’ ” says Gondry, who is tight-lipped about the Hornet project, admitting only, under heavy questioning, that it will be “very green and very hornet.”

I think Gondry's beginning to play down his accomplishment so he can be the underdog again. Very clever, he doesn't need to.

It is a good thing he's putting the cardboard down, half the vimeo embeds use it ever since. The man has nothing else to prove, he's showing fatigue but only because we've become so familiar with his work it's DNA became commonplace all over the map.

Green hornet should be great, bring back Tim Maurice Jones as your DP!

I always found it weird he became so heavily associated with cardboard. To me his most interesting accomplishments were his camera tricks, especially his transitions between shots. Hopefully give us more of that stuff.

Ha, its so true though. its not the videos are bad its just they never are that successful. He did an amazing video for kanye and it seems no one has even seen it.
