ETIENNE CHARRY aube radieuse serpents en flammes. 1 album, 16 videos
The Parisian music video producer Charles Petit invited 16 young, mostly French, directors to each make a video for one of the tracks on the album "Aube Radieuse Serpents en flammes" by Etienne Charry. Etienne Charry became well-known as the singer of the band "Oui Oui", for whom, by the way, Michel Gondry made his first music videos and also played the drums. To accompany music that one could perhaps classify as "French underground pop", videos for "Aube Radieuse Serpents en flames" were produced in diverse genres - from photo collage to road movie, little narrative, 3D animation, or with 1920´s silent film aesthetics. Etienne Charry is neither shown as a singer, nor is a style or corporate identity for the music strived for. Charry´s songs are playful treasures and represent a French pop culture which is totally unfamiliar here in Germany. His music is used by the filmmakers as a creative playground - with results that are always surprising: great entertainment on a tiny budget. In Germany, where due to lack of options for having them shown, the production of independent music videos is getting more and more difficult, such creative abundance seems revolutionary. The spirit of a young, eager-to-experiment France becomes evident.
The presentation of the videos is complemented by features which provide insights into the background of this production. A feature about the project produced for Canal+, as well as interviews with Charles Petit and Etienne Charry, portraits of the directors, and production materials round out this DVD release.
DVD-R PAL all regions, 16 Music Videos + 30 min. of background material.
