Daft Punk - D.A.F.T.
Anyone who has yet to experience a Daft Punk pop video should simply dive in at the deep end by picking up this collection, which also features, on the DVD version, live concert footage shot from nine different vantage points allowing you, the user, to control the action.
Needless to say those of you who have had the pleasure of seeing any of these videos have no doubt picked up a DVD or VHS copy already.
Featuring the work of some of the best directors around, including a directorial debut from the DP's themselves, this collection gives you the option of watching each video while listening to commentary from the director, versions that have the on-set sound, a look at the storyboards as well as the original versions of each video.
I'd seen two of these previously, Spike Jonze's Da Funk and Seb Janiak's Burnin, both of which are generally acknowledged as doing a splendid job of pushing the art of pop video production even further into the great unknown, and I was pleasantly surprised to see more ground breaking from the three I'd never seen before, including the most recent to date, Fresh, directed by Daft Punk and which features a behind the scenes look at Spike Jonze directing some kind of cheesy romantic flick featuring the dog mask guy as the leading man.
Don't worry - all will become clear after you follow the link below and get yourself a copy.
