Michel Gondry is one of the most visually stunning directors working today with fantastic works such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep. While his latest high profile project is Kidding with Jim Carrey on Showtime, the visually brilliant Michel has teamed with his brother Oliver Gondry on a series of incredibly short films, entitled Las Vegas Love Stories. Each of these shorts is simply eight seconds long, the current average attention span of a person.
Each of the six shorts as part of Las Vegas Love Stories is directed by Oliver Gondry and feature the wild visuals associated with Michel’s most famous works. Of course, these are short simple ads for the Park MGM in Las Vegas, but at least these are inventive works of cinematic bravado and not just corporate sloganeering. Each of the six shorts focuses on a romantic connection in its brief running time, like a whirlwind romance that can start and end in the blink of an eye. Check out all six of Michel and Oliver Gondry’s Las Vegas Love Stories below. They certainly won’t waste your valuable time.
