Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michel Gondry began his filmmaking career directing music videos for such artists as The White Stripes, The Rolling Stones, Beck, and Daft Punk. In 2001, Gondry made his feature-film directorial debut, Human Nature, from a screenplay by Charlie Kaufman.

He is currently in post-production on The Green Hornet, a feature film about the iconic superhero that will star Seth Rogen, Christoph Waltz, and Cameron Diaz to be released in December 2010 by Columbia Pictures.
