Last night Threadtrend attended the DVD release party for Michel Gondry 2: More Videos (before & after DVD 1). The party, which was held at The Montalbán in Hollywood was billed as “An Evening with Michel Gondry and Friends.” The event was put on by Nike Sportswear and was part of of Cinema Tuesdays which is curated by Flux. The event had an open bar hosted by Belvedere. The many VIPs in attendance included Seth Rogan, Jospeh Gordon-Levitt, Saul Williams, Emile Hirsch and lots more.
The night certainly lived up to the title as it began with a Q & A session with Michel on such topics as his craziest dreams, if he is from a family of inventors and insight into his creative mind. They showed clips from the DVD and afterwards held a signing, where you had the opportunity to get the Hit N Run screenprinted Michel Gondry notebook signed.
To top off the night, Jon Brion did a performance of covers with Michel Gondry on drums. They performed such songs as Daft Punk’s “Around The World“, “Rappers Delight” and the theme to “Midnight Run”.
The DVD is available exclusively on the just launched Michel Gondry website and features a nearly 3-hour compilation of videos and never-been-seen behind-the-scenes content. The music videos on the DVD range from The White Stripes, Paul McCartney, Beck, Kanye West, Bjork and Radiohead.
Take a look at a preview some of the material after the cut.
Radiohead- “Knives Out”
Bjork- “Declare Independence”
Beck- “Cellphones Dead”
