After reaching the top of his profession as an experimental music video and commercial director, Michel Gondry made the natural transition to feature films. Prior to making his feature debut, Gondry turned his unique visual perspective to good use with the music video for Björk's popular and award-winning single, "Human Behavior" (1993), which helped catapult the Icelander to stardom while breaking new ground in the medium. He also became an innovator in the commercial world, especially with a Levi's ad called "Drugstore" (1994), which, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, became the most award-winning ad of all time. Following a highly successful decade of making videos and shooting commercials, Gondry was introduced to screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and helmed the interesting "Human Nature." The pair had even greater success with their next collaboration, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (2004), which won them the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Following a surprise turn to documentaries with "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" (2006) and the winsome fantasy "The Science of Sleep" (2006), the director was hired to make his first blockbuster movie, "The Green Hornet" (2011), proving that even creatively risk-taking directors like Gondry had their place in Hollywood.
