What music video directors deserve a DVD collection?

After the success of the "Director's Series" DVDs, I was wanting more. The idea was created by Jonze, Gondry and Cunningham, though, so I don't know would Palm Pictures do another set for other directors.

But this is hypothetical, of course. What music video directors deserve a DVD collection?

My choices...

Jonathan Glazer

He's done great videos. For example:

Jamiroquai Virtual Insanity
Massive Attack KarmaComa
Blur The Universal
Radiohead Karma Police, Street Spirit
U.N.K.L.E. Rabbit In Your Headlights

A couple of those are on DVD already on band compilations. He's also done some really artistic ads, for Guinness and Stella Artois. It'd be great to see a comprehensive release of his work.



David Fincher

Sure, he was much more pop music-oriented, but he made some GREAT videos - when he still made them. Some I like are:

The Rolling Stones Love Is Strong
Madonna Vogue
Aerosmith Janie's Got A Gun



Mark Romanek

The guy's imaginitive as all hell.

Michael & Janet Jackson Scream
Nine Inch Nails Closer, The Perfect Drug
Johnny Cash Hurt
Madonna Bedtime Story



Stephane Sednaoui

A director with stuff on DVD already, again. Considering the treatment the Smashing Pumpkins videos were given, I'd like to see a DVD of Stephane's work.

Garbage Queer
U2 Mysterious Ways, Discotheque
Bjork Big Time Sensuality



Anton Corbijn's another good one with more videos than I can remember.


Anyone else? I put this in "movie talk", since we're really looking at the short films of prolific directors.

Living, I didn't forget anything.

I simply posted some of my favorites. I'm sure that if you wanted a comprehensive list, you could find one online, perhaps in the "other works" bit of IMDb.

Definitely Mark Romanek, Mark Pellington, and Wayne Isham.

I'd like to see David Fincher's work. I have a Rick Springfield concert DVD (repeat that and I'll deny it! ) that he directed, and one of the Michael Jackson videos was done by him on the Dangerous DVD I think, but I'd like to see a bunch of his early stuff in one place.

He'd be my choice....slightly biased with being a Depeche Mode fan given his involvement with them.
However..given his work with artists such as Joy Division,U2,Echo & The Bunnymen,Nirvana,RHCP,Travis and being a famed photographer i'm sure he has to be considered for part of Palm Pictures 'Directors' series.
