The man responsible for The Stripes videos 'Fell In Love With a Girl,' 'Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground' and 'Hardest Button to Button' has a DVD spotlighting his work coming out on DVD. More official information here.

The series by Palm Pictures is in an ongoing series highlighting the work of filmmakers who have helped re-define music videos and filmmaking over the last decade. Each volume features music videos, shorts and commercials hand-picked by the directors, exclusive audio and video commentaries from featured artists and collaborators, unreleased shorts and documentaries and much more.

A 52-page companion book including photographs, storyboards, treatments, drawings and interviews comes with each specially packaged DVD. There's a little preview on the website. In it, there's a short little interview with Jack and Meg and a shoot from behind the scenes at the filming of "Fell In Love With A Girl" with Meg in heavy "panda eyes" makeup hitting the drums. I don't think "The Hardest Button To Button" is included because that is so new. But "Dead Leaves On The Dirty Ground" is in there.

A couple random quote from Gondry on his relationship with Jack and Meg that I can't fit in in paragraph form:
Gondry: "The best thing that can happen to a director is if you get onboard with a band that's just taking off and you go to the summit with them."

And random quotes from Jack and Meg on the Great Gondry:
Meg: He's like a brilliant six-year-old. Jack: He's got his set of crayons, which for him is working with cameras and editing equipment.
Meg: Everything's very mathematical, and every tiniest little detail is worked out. And you would see him with his little papers that every second mapped out, but at the same time, he's got a total childlike fascination with color and shapes and sequences.
Jack: With Michel, you just stay out of his way. You can't make it any better, because he's brilliant right off the bat. There were going to be a couple White Stripes songs in his latest movie but they didn't end up working with the scene in the end.
