VidVibe: Jake Nava - Part IV

Last batch of eye candies from Jake Nava.
I think the peak that Jake reached that he can hardly to top again was when he got to direct the music video for The Rolling Stones' 'Streets Of Love'. And he did a good job with it, the cinematography is beautiful, the video girl looks hot, the mood's atmospheric. Definitely a highlight in his career. Check out more of his videos for rockers like System Of A Down and UK punk band Rooster, both artfully done with groundbreaking visual effects. It's nice to see this recently-changed directing style of him. In his video for Aussie songbird Natalie Imbruglia 'Shiver', there's a plot inspired by the movie 'The Bourne Supremacy', with her chasing cars and switch fake identities, running from somebody in Ukraine. And finally, to end this VidVibe, I give you this must-watch music video 'Stars' from The Cranberries. The song's great itself, but the video he directed back in 2002 is so stunning, although it's just the band performing in exotic, wild landscapes. It's got this summer feel to it, and it just makes you want to jump in the screen and be there, roaring with them. Brilliant stuff.
The next director on my list: Joseph Kahn.
