Michel Gondry.

I went to see the Science Of Sleep at the cinema, at the Electric Cinema actually, which I love, in Notting Hill.

I wanted to do a poster for the movie afterwards, but thought it would be more fun to play with a lot of element from his music videos and movies.

Great 'train of thought' image. SO many of you French fellas are geniuses!! What's your secret? Are you all suckled on vin rouge from an early age?

Cali said...

j'adore Gondry, j'aime sa fantaisie et son originalité (:

I'm with MJ on this - you clearly are un génie! all wonderful work and very inspiring! hope to see you at life drawing soon?

Great work .. Though I haven't managed to see Science of Sleep, I'm gonna have to soon, because I just adore Michel Gondry .. Even when he makes a straightforward movie like "Dave Chappelle's Block Party," he definitely puts his signature style on it

Great poster Stef

I was looking forward to this film but I thought it was very dissapointing.
It's full of charming stuff but I really didn't take to it.
However, Gondry is a terrific film maker, make no mistake.

Stef said...

- Merci Matthieu Jean. You know all the secrets now that you work there. Shame thought that most of them have to leave France to work in the U.S or U.K. We have fantastic talent in Europe... but no budget really.

- Moi aussi Cali, Gondry est un modele pour beaucoup.

- Hey Ed, thank you! I don't know about that, but I appreciate the comment.
Hope to make it to the life drawing soon with you guys.

- Thanks Reel Fanatic.

- Tack Mattias.

- I'm with you Elliot, I guess the Science Of Sleep is more like a best of his work, if you know his music videos, you don't really need to see the movie, I was a bit disapointed too, like the re-use of the big hands that he first used in everlong (Foo Fighters).
But yes, terrific film maker, such a shame that you start to see his style everywhere now in commercials now, many are merely copying him.

Stef said...

Thanks Gurb! I will, I'm talking with the Campana brothers at the moment to see if they want to do a chair out of it.

Hola !! No escribo inglés, pero Altavista Traduction está muy bien ;-)
Sólo para decirte que la ultima pelicula de Gondry me parece etremadamente inferior a la maravillosa Eternal Sunshine, esa sí que me gustó un montón.

Un abrazo desde Barcelona !

Georgina.

PaulSketch said...

oo this is so fitting to the movie!! I LOVE Science of Sleep - it was so creative and fresh. Awesome work

Stef said...

- Hola Georgina,

Gracias por tu commentar. That's how far my Spanish goes, unless you can speak French.

Agree with you about the science of sleep.

I saw on your blog that you love eternal sunshine.

I love Science of Sleep so much more than sunshine of the spotless mind.

Amazing illustration BTW

Well whilst the film weren't up to expectations... really long and the end was letting it down. The wine and the lovely leather chairs in Electric Cinema was great as always...Like your poster.

Have you seen the blog "I want to work with Michel Gondry" in youtube.com? I think it is very interesting. I really hope this guy achieve his goal! You should see the blog and let Gondry know about it if you know him!
