Who Is David Slade?

Apr 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

You may know David Slade’s film credits include “Hard Candy” and “30 Days of Night,” but you may be wondering what he was up to before he moved to the world of film.  I did a little research and found that the upcoming “Eclipse” director used to direct music videos, including several for Muse!  Some of his music video credits include:

Muse: “Hyper Music,” “Feeling Good,” “Bliss,” and “New Born.”

Stone Temple Pilots: “Sour Girl”

System of a Down: “Aerials”

AFI: “Girl’s Not Grey”

Tori Amos: “Strange Little Girl”

David Grey: “This Year’s Love” (one of my favs!)

You can check out some of his videos below.  What do you think of him so far?  Think Summit made a good choice?

    Sweet! Turns out that I’ve loved David Slade’s work without knowing who he was. I am really starting to like the idea of different directors for each movie, just like Harry Potter. The HP films have had different directors who create a new feel for each movie while essentially keeping HP as it is supposed to be. I think this will be the same for the Twilight movies.

    WHY are there no clips from 30 Days of Night on here? Why? WHYYYY?
    Danny Huston as the lead Vampire, Marlow, is darkly delicious. Rpattz, sorry bud, thou dost not compare’th to Huston. Go cry in a corner or something about not gettin’ any alone time being that you are now celebrity…you know…the career that YOU CHOSE. What a whino.
    Show some love for Marlow in 30 Days of Night. Fans… UNITE.

    i think the fact this guy has a clear love of working with muse and miss meyer’s has a big love for muse too its clear they can relate on this passion and hopefully he can bring that darkness to eclipse as its my fav in the saga and it is really the darkest for the characters as its the inbetween from the lose and heart ache of new moon and the fear of the unknown and great beyond that we discover in breaking dawn.

    david slade is fab director and for anyone who hasn’t seen 30 days of night really should because its an amazing film visually and one of my favourite vampire movies ever.

    i think i’m more excited to see what he does than what happens with new moon. haha
