“There's nothing worse than a dream sequence done all in post-production." - Michel Gondry
- Michel Gondry: You'll Like This Film Because You're In It
A how-to book from the famed director, Michel Gondry - this little paperback by Michel Gondry was inspired by his 2008 film, Be Kind Rewind.
- At New York's Deitch Projects, in February and March of 2008, Gondry emulated the heroic example of the characters in Be Kind Rewind, constructing a do-it-yourself film studio in which any visitor could assemble their own film from extant plot summaries and rent the results. His aim: "I intend to prove that people can enjoy their time without being part of the commercial system and serving it... Ultimately, I am hoping to create a network of creativity and communication that is guaranteed to be free and independent from any commercial institution."
This book chronicles those films in photographs and drawings, and in texts discussing the ideas behind Gondry's "Cinema Club." It also serves as an inspirational guide to independent film making. Edited and art directed by Gondry himself, this book is as unique, funny and fanciful as his films.
