Personal Quote:

I guess it depends if you direct really crappy music videos or really great feature films. I would say generally there's a little bit of a pejorative when you mention the phrase music video because it brings to mind 'junk'.

However, when you look at the crop of music video directors like Spike Jonze, David Fincher and Chris Cunningham, these guys are clearly great filmmakers in whatever medium ... See more »

Trivia:

Was considered by 20th Century Fox as a potential director for the 2006 The Omen (2006) remake, however John Moore eventually got the job. See more »

Trademark:

Strongly emulates Stanley Kubrick's style in filming

Star Sign:

Virgo
