Video: Tribute to Director Mark Romanek’s Music Videos

Here is a great tribute video to one of the most prolific and visionary music video directors of the 1990s and early 21st century, Mark Romanek. His unique and often disturbing visual style helped to pave the way for his subsequent work in feature films. His videos have come to be regarded as among the best of the medium and has worked with many top-selling recording artists from different genres of popular music, and his videos have been given credit for making stars out of some. One of his notable videos was for the Nine Inch Nails song “Closer”. Its critical acclaim was only matched by its critical controversy, many accusing the video as being disturbing, demonic and demented. In 1996, he was awarded a Grammy for Best Short Form Video for the Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson duet “Scream,” with a second Grammy coming two years later for Janet’s “Got ‘Til It’s Gone.” And in 1997, he became the first director to receive the music video network’s Video Vanguard award for his contributions to the medium. Two of his videos – Madonna’s “Bedtime Story” and Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” – were eventually made part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
