Richard Curtis is a well-known Rom-com director, producing popular films such as Bridget Jones Diary, Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral. Curtis requested to direct the video as the publicity of the song would help promote his new film. The song Jump by Girls Aloud was also featured in the film.

Notorious - The Saturdays: This music video was directed by Syndrome productions. Syndrome work with MTV and their movie and music video awards. They also work with artists such as Eminem, Alicia Keys and Ke$ha. The company said they were delighted with the results of the super-glam and super-clean video.

Push the button – Sugababes: The music video was directed by American director Matthew Rolston and produced by Lindsay Turnham for Exposure Films. It was filmed in various locations throughout Shepherds Bush, London in July 2005 and first aired in the United Kingdom in the week of 12 September 2005. The video primarily focuses around the three members of the band dancing in an elevator for a CGI-animated skyscraper.

Khan is a very famous director and has worked on music videos with artists such as Eminem, Janet Jackson, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and many more. Khan also is a newly director of films, with his first ever film Torque. He also directs Television Advertisements such as for Vodaphone, Windows and Citroen.

  1. Good research/info
    One of the things you'll be asked to do is consider what might change in your vid if directed by 'x' - eg, how would it differ if directed by Michel Gondry (the idea being for you to get a grasp of one director's style, and possibly actually apply some aspects of that, as with the Anton Corbijn-influenced JoyDiv last year)
    Do any of these dir's stand out?
    Also: rem to include HH, FH or ALL with all post titles from this point
