Orient Ave. is quickly becoming one of our favorite streets in the ‘burg, as it features steak-knife stabbings, squatters, and Williamsburg’s own Michel Gondry (who, it turns out, is no longer missing). The latter, Mr. Gondry, is apparently busy shooting some kind of top secret project outside his house today, which he kinda-sorta told a passerby is a music video. Flavorwire reports:
Last night I passed by two guarded, trash bag-covered cameras in front of his house that had been set up earlier that day. When I asked the guys watching the equipment if Gondry was involved, they smiled but would not confirm it. When I then asked if Michel Gondry was paying them well to stay up all night, they said yes.
She returned this morning to check back in and see what the deal is. “I returned at 7 a.m. this morning and spotted Gondry busy sweding with a group of lackeys. One of them joked that they were working on a student film; Gondry told me that he was shooting a music video but would not reveal the artist.”
I’m betting its someone awesome, as Wikipedia lists Gondry as a director on videos for pretty much all of the world’s biggest artists – from Beck to Kanye to the White Stripes, and everyone in between.
He’ll be at Strand bookstore tonight promoting his latest book, You’ll Like This Film Because You’re In It, tonight, so hopefully someone will get the skinny and send it in.
