It’s always a treat to see film directors stepping behind the camera not for creating works of fiction but actually music videos. Even more so, when the artist responsible for the music is known to have had a troubled past and is choosing to discuss it in his latest promo. Such is the case with Eminem’s “Headlights” promo directed by the none other: Spike Lee. Dealing with Marshall’s love/hate relationship with his mother, also marginally touched in Curtis Hanson’s “8 Mile” feature, Headlights offers us the perspective of a woman in the attempts to reconnect with her estranged son. An emotional story especially due to the 1-st person camera perspective.

    2Pause | Freezing Music Video Culture

    The world of music videos has traditionally provided a perfect breeding ground to test new visual styles, VFX and editing techniques. It has also proven to be an extraordinary springboard for some of todays most acclaimed film directors, such as Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Michel Gondry, to name but three. 2Pause is the second installment of our curated music video website. The old Pause website is still online here.
