In questa sezione potrete trovare tutti quanti i profili dei registi che negli anni hanno aiutato i Red Hot Chili Peppers a rendere famose le loro canzoni anche attraverso le immagini dei loro videoclip.

OMRI COHEN
Nato in Israele, Omri si è trasferito con la famiglia in America quando era ancora molto piccolo. In questi anni, il giovane ha sviluppato un forte interesse per il mondo cinematografico e in particolare per la regia. Ad oggi Omri parla in 6 diverse lingue ed ha diretto cortometraggi in 4 lingue.

Il suo grande passo è avvenuto quando i Red Hot Chili Peppers hanno scelto il suo video per la pubblicazione del singolo Charlie. Lo stesso Anthony dichiarò una volta di essersi commosso dopo averlo visto per la prima volta.

Omri è stato regista anche di campagne pubblicitarie per Nike e Microsoft. Il giovane regista è considerato un narratore visivo della realtà, con una particolare capacità a creare momenti e circostanze che rimandano alla realtà, al naturale e senza grossi sforzi alla bellezza. Attualmente fa parte dell'azienda Losangelina Green Dot Films.






Charlie (2008)
Il 6 marzo del 2007 i Peppers annunciarono di aver deciso di indire un concorso per trovare un nuovo regista per il videoclip della canzone Charlie. Il vincitore è stato scelto tra tutti quanti coloro i quali hanno deciso di partecipare caricando il proprio video su youtube e i giudici della gara sono stati proprio i 4 peppers che con molta pazienza hanno visonato con attenzione ognuno dei centinaia di video che in brevissimo tempo sono giunti per la revisione.
Il vincitore fu per l'appunto Omri Cohen, un regista emergente che ha inscenato il video in una sorta di road trippin' tra ragazzini, che a bordo di un Van Hippie attraversano tutta la California per poi ritrovarsi a fine video a Venice Beach, dove i Peppers spesso trascorrono le loro giornate.

Nick Wickham (Snow)

In un'intervista Tony Kaye, già regista di Dani California, annunciò ad MTV che avrebbe diretto anche Snow, per ragioni ancora sconosciute, le riprese no nfurono mai utilizzate e si affidò la direzione ad un nuovo regista, Nick Wickham, che si limitò ad estrapolare alcune scene di vita quotidiana durante il tour di Stadium Arcadium, per la precisione durante i concerti del 17 e 18 Ottobre all'Izod Center in New Jersey, e immortalò per la prima volta in un video della band, molti dei membri storici della crew che segue e aiuta i quattro durante i concerti.


Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Tell Me Baby)

Il video musicale di Tell Me baby è stato diretto dalla coppia artistica composta da Johnatan Dayton and Valerie Faris, già autori di altri videoclip della band. Flea affermò: "E' il miglior video che abbiamo mai girato".

Per la realizzazione del video, i due registi hanno inscenato una sorta di tributo alla California come fonte di ispirazione per artisti emergenti. Le persone giunte ai provini sono state intervistate e si sono esibite nelle loro capacità.

Il videoclip riprende il momento in cui i membri dei Red Hot Chili Peppers entrano in scena all'insaputa dei candidati e iniziano a suonare con loro. L'intento della band è quello di mostrare quando siano ridicoli a volte i provini e quando sia difficile sostenere determinate prove nel mondo della musica.

la riprese inoltre fanno emergere in modo preponderante la componente ludica della musica e il piacere che si può provare nel suonare per divertimento.




Tony Kaye (Dani California)

Tony Kaye è un noto regista nato a Londra nel 1952. Nella sua lunga carriera ha diretto film, videoclip, documentari e spot pubblicitari.

Kaye è un regista molto prolifico e nel suo curriculum si possono trovare collaborazioni con alcune delle più grandi band al mondo: Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soul Asylum, Roger Waters.

Nella sua carriera famosa rimane la sua diatriba con Edward Norton e la casa discografica New Line Cinema, dopo che il co-regista Norton modificò a suo piacimento alcune scene del film American history X del 1998 di cui Tony era regista. L'uomo cercò in tutti i modi di disconoscere il proprio film chiedendo che fosse eliminato o cambiato con uno pseudonimo, il suo nome dai credits del film. Quando però gli fu negato il permesso dall'azienda, Kaye decise di boicottare in diversi giornali il film, che però nonostante questo ottenne un discreto successo.

Il video musicale di Dani California ha fatto il suo debutto mondiale il 4 Aprile 2006. Kaye fu scelto solo dopo l'iniziale rifiuto da parte di Mark Romanek. Il videoclip è una sorta di evoluzione cronologica della musica rock dagli anni 50/60 ad oggi.

La band durante le riprese ha impersonato e interpretato alcune delle band cult appartenenti alle epoche che più hanno influenzato la musica rock negli ultimi 50 anni.

Inizialmente l'idea era di immedesimarsi nelle varie epoche più che in specifici gruppi. Il risultato finale però ci riporta alla mente alcuni artisti di fondamentale importanza per la musica: Elvis Presley, i Beatles, Jimy Hendrix, George Clinton, David Bowie, Sex Pistols, i Misfits, i Motley Crüe e i Nirvana.



The video received seven nominations at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards, but only won the award for Best Art Direction, failing to win its six other nominations for Video of the Year, Best Group Video, Best Rock Video, Best Direction, Best Editing and Best Cinematography. The video was also nominated for an MMVA for best international video.


Fortune Faded - Laurent Briet

"Fortune Faded" is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was released in 2003 as a single, to coincide with the release of their Greatest Hits album. The song, along with "Save the Population" (another song from their Greatest Hits), was recorded at The Mansion and produced by Rick Rubin. A music video was also produced.





Can't Stop - Mark Romanek


Mark Romanek (born September 18, 1959) is an award-winning American music video director who has also moved into directing theatrical films.


The Mark Romanek-directed music video for the single features all four of the band members doing seemingly random and excessively abstract actions such as holding lots of water bottles or attempting to balance buckets on their heads.
It begins with the camera swooping perilously through a yellow tube to Anthony Kiedis, wearing glasses,and is subsequently followed by the foursome running through a hall with light fixtures attached to their backs. The band engages in various activities, such as: wearing a giant purple hippopotamus mask, playing with rubber balls, jumping, abstract scenes with boxes, buckets, water bottles, trash cans, flying through the air, pink foam peanuts, plants, playing guitar in a room full of empty blue chairs/room with lamps turning on and off. At the conclusion stands a lone sign printed in white letters arranged with the phrase "Inspired by the 'One-Minute Sculptures' of Erwin Wurm".

At certain segments of the video, one can see guitarist John Frusciante playing an orange Toronado, which is unlike his style due to the fact that he only plays vintage guitars (the Toronado being under five years of age). Frusciante later affirmed that he was instructed to play the guitar by director Mark Romanek as it blended well with the color scheme used in the video, he also admitted that he never actually was playing the guitar.[6]

Inspiration for the video was attributed to Austrian artist Erwin Wurm.[7] The lighting was positioned in order to provide a clean-cut, contemporary atmosphere which would integrate with the video's concept.[7] Orange was chosen to be the backsplash color by Romanek. His creative hand attempted to mirror Wurm's abstract "One Minute Sculptures", by having the band perform random scenes, which seem to fit no purpose. However, in retrospect, they were not intended to be anything more than arbitrary actions, fitting with the ideas expressed in Wurm's work.



Otherside, Californication, Road Trippin', By the Way, The Zephyr Song - Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris


Jonathan Dayton (born 7 July 1957 in Alameda County, California) and Valerie Faris (born 20 October 1958 in Los Angeles County, California) are an award-winning team of music video directors, also husband and wife who received critical acclaim for their feature film directorial debut, 2006's Little Miss Sunshine.



Californication is a unique video in that it takes the form of a video game from the point of view of the player. The video itself bears resemblance to many games, including Tomb Raider, Grand Theft Auto, Crazy Taxi, Panzer Dragoon, SSX, Resident Evil, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and the railcar level of Donkey Kong 64.

The following statistics are presented for each member of the band at the beginning of the video.
Anthony Chad Flea John
Strength 18.9 19.8 19.2 18.6
Stamina 19.2 19.4 19.5 19.2

Guitarist John Frusciante starts off on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He bumps into a celebrity, and jumps over three security guards, then picks up an asterisk. The action pauses and cuts to a shot of the band playing on top of a hill for a few seconds. This happens each time a band member picks up an asterisk, which is the logo of the band.

Chad Smith, the Chili Peppers' drummer, is seen snowboarding down Mount Tahoe (although he has never ridden a snowboard in real life). He falls into a ravine, but lands on a train.

Lead singer Anthony Kiedis starts off swimming in an ocean off the Channel Islands, passing sharks and swimmers and picks up an asterisk. He gets out riding a shark and lands in his car. The registration plate on the car says "GERMS", which is a reference to The Germs, the band that Kiedis listened to as he grew up.

Flea, the bassist, is seen in Muir Woods, and is about to pick up an asterisk, but he can't get past a bear guarding it, although he helps it out by kicking down a hunter about to shoot it. He goes on a mine-cart ride, and goes to another asterisk, but it's guarded by a pregnant teen (Dani of Dani California and By the Way, also mentioned in this song as "getting high on information"). He then gets surrounded by a horde of lumberjacks, but he jumps on top of a tree and sees all the other trees fall.

Meanwhile, John goes to a movie set, and ducks and weaves through a sci-fi film, a porno, and stops in a set apparently filming a biographical film about Leonardo da Vinci (John has an interest in da Vinci and his works). He sees a theorized flying machine being used.

Chad is meanwhile seen snowboarding on the Golden Gate Bridge, using it as a grind rail.

Anthony is in the same scene, driving around San Francisco. He drives underwater, and then jumps through the hole of a giant doughnut (A reference to Randy's Donuts shop in LA) His car falls off a cliff and he lands on a giant dragonfly, being harnessed by Flea, who rides it to the sky, where John is riding the da Vinci flying machine, and Chad is doing snowboarding tricks. Anthony eventually falls off, and lands in a poppy field, and the flowers grow huge, but he finds an asterisk.

Much later, there is a big earthquake, and a city is falling apart. All the band members narrowly escape death from falling buildings and car crashes. The video ends with all the band members falling into the center of the earth, finding a cube, touching it, and turning from computer graphics to real people. (Flea falls through an asterisk while falling to the center of the Earth)

The video is directed by the prolific husband-wife directorial team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.

There is a link between this video clip and the experience of relapsing into a drug addiction that Anthony describes in his book, Scar Tissue:

"... The chase is always exciting. There are cops and bad guys and freaks and hookers. You're diving into a big insidious video game, but again, you're being tricked into thinking that you're doing something cool, since the price is always bigger than the payoff. You immediately give up your love and your light and your beauty, and you become a dark black hole in the universe, sucking up bad energy and not walking around putting a smile on someone's face..."

_______________

The video was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris in a black-and-white/monochrome Gothic style similar to Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, all influenced by German Expressionist art. Elements of Cubism and work by the graphic artist M. C. Escher are also seen in the video.

A cartoonish story line is juxtaposed upon the song; that of a young man's dream sequence. The band members appear dressed in black in unusual locations, with props intended to appear as surreal instruments. Throughout the video Anthony Kiedis with his short, platinum hair is seen in a castle tower. His stage persona is different and quite dark when compared to his more energetic performances in other videos. John Frusciante plays a rope down a long corridor as if a guitar, although reluctant wanting just to play his guitar normally. Flea is hanging on telephone wires and playing them as if they were a bass guitar, and Chad Smith is up on a tower with a rotating medieval clock that serves as his drum kit.

Jonathan Dayton: "We did look at Caligari, and we looked at a lot of German Expressionist film. But it was also very important to avoid 'Caligari.' It was both inspiration and something to work around, because it has such a strong, specific style, and there have been other videos that have completely ripped it off."

Valerie Faris: "We didn't look at 'Calagari' all that much, really. We did, but then we just left it. We did look at a lot of the works of the futurist artists from the '30s, and the illustrations of the surrealists and from cubism. We were inspired more by paintings than by films…"

"Road Trippin'" is one of the few Red Hot Chili Peppers songs not to feature drums in any way. As such, Chad Smith only appears briefly at the end of the video, arriving in a boat.

__________________________
By the way
The frenetic video was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, a couple who has collaborated with the band to create music videos on numerous other occasions. It is not a visual verbatim demonstration of the lyrical denotations, but rather a story all its own.

The video starts off with Anthony calling for a taxi. He gets in the taxi and a cabbie realizes he has Anthony as his passenger and puts a copy of the "By the Way" single into the CD player to please him, making Anthony smile mildly. Suddenly, the cabbie begins to be out of control as he lip-synchs the song loud and clear and begins to accelerate the taxi faster and faster and drive rambunctiously throughout the streets of L.A. after locking the car door, which makes Anthony uncomfortable and apprehensive. Anthony attempts to call on his cell phone, but the cabbie brakes so hard Anthony loses grip of his cell phone and the cabbie snatches it and throws it out of the window. The cabbie drives Anthony even more crazy as he drives the car in a cloud of dust and backs up under a bridge [Fans might think that it is the bridge that Anthony talked about in the song, "Under the Bridge"]. While under the bridge, the cabbie pulls out flare sticks and begins to torture him through awkward dancing while Anthony finally pages Flea and John, who are having lunch in a cafe, which says "Help! I've been kidnapped." At first John and Flea thinks it a hoax so they ignore the first message, then when Anthony pages them for the second time, Flea and John set out on Flea's Ford Bronco to find Anthony once again with the crazy cabbie in the taxi and begin a wild chase and even having some road rage. Anthony soon sees them, and breaks out of the taxi window and jumps in Flea's truck with a sigh of relief as the Chilis drive on another road to escape the cabbie. At the end, Chad calls for the taxi, and the cabbie realizes that he is a member of the Chilis too, so he drives off [the window that was broken was not shown intact] with him.

* If you look closely, you can see the word "Jammin'!" on the cabbie's shirt.
* The bridge that Anthony gets driven under may be the one he sang about in the song, "Under the Bridge" where he struggled with drugs and almost ended his life.
* The book that Anthony holds in his hand at the beginning is Lexicon Devil which is a biography of his earlier influence, The Germs.


“ It’s kidnapping… A cab driver kidnaps me and just goes haywire through the town; he’s a fan, but he’s kind of a (pause) obsessive, compulsive, psychologically misarranged fan, and he sees me and starts enjoying himself a little too much and my friends have to come and rescue me. ”

Anthony Kiedis – The Making of: By the Way; Greatest Hits.

The fast and often jerky camera angles used in the high speed chase sequences are based on the 2000 Mexican film Amores Perros in which all the characters are linked by a car crash at the beginning of the film, before the crash is an almost identical high speed car chase sequence.


______________________
The Zephyr Song:
The music video, released on December 3rd, 2002, was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. The couple has collaborated with the band on numerous other videos. It is generally suggestive and reminiscent of a kaleidoscope, by utilizing the same circular and intertwining figures in order to illustrate the psychedelic feel the band was aiming for.
“ John [Frusciante] and Flea wanted something incredibly, just kind of obscure and psychedelic. Finding true psychedelia in this day and age is really hard to do, because everyone wants to rely on computers and all the stuff that really doesn't know how to find the core of psychedelia. So I had my reservations, but, uh, there are some moments in this video where I think it's captured[1] ”



Scar Tissue, Around The World - Stéphane Sednaoui

Scar Tissue:
The video for "Scar Tissue", was directed by Stephane Sednaoui, who also directed the video for Give It Away.

The opening shot is of John Frusciante driving, a metaphor for Frusciante's return and ascension to musical leadership of the band (he does not drive in real life). But the four of them are battered, beaten, and bandaged. They are traveling in a rusty wreck and playing broken instruments on the comeback trail. The video ends after an emotional thirty second Frusciante guitar solo at the moment of sunset, with John tossing the broken guitar from the car.

__________________________
Around The World:
A music video was made for the song, directed by Stéphane Sednaoui, who had previously made videos for other Chili Peppers songs such as "Breaking the Girl", "Scar Tissue" and "Give It Away". The latter in particular, with its unique, chaotic visual style, is similar to "Around the World". The video was featured on Making the Video.


Love Rollercoaster - Kevin Lofton

Their version appeared on the soundtrack of the animated film Beavis and Butt-head Do America. There was also an animated music video that was made for the song, featuring Beavis, Butt-head, and the band riding an amusement park roller coaster, intercut with scenes from the film. The song is played early in the movie itself, when Beavis and Butt-head arrive in Las Vegas. In the dance hall scene, a fictional funk band is shown performing the song live (the one appearing on the background of the single cover).

"Coffee Shop" is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers from their 1995 album, One Hot Minute. It is the fifth track on the album and was released as its fourth single with a promotional music video in 1996.


Soul to Squeeze
Director: Kevin Kerslake

Código:

The music video for "Soul to Squeeze" was directed by Kevin Kerslake and features Chad, Flea and Kiedis in a stereotypical circus. The circus includes various "freaks" including "The Conehead", a reference to the film the song appeared in playing in and amongst all the acts. It is shot in black and white. Though John Frusciante does play guitar in this song, he is not visibly featured in the video as he had quit the band in 1992. In the video someone in his likeness wears a large black hat and can be seen at the end of the table in the video.

Originally, the video was supposed to feature the band playing spliced with footage from the film Coneheads, but The Chili Peppers refused this idea. Another scrapped music video idea had the band playing in the desert after a car accident. This version was meant to have a connection to the afterlife.

Código:
Kevin Kerslake is an American music video director. He has directed videos for Stone Temple Pilots, Filter, 311, Faith No More, Green Day, Depeche Mode, The Smashing Pumpkins, Papa Roach, Nirvana, Rise Against, The Offspring, and many other bands.

Breaking The Girl
Director: Stéphane Sednaoui

Código:
Wiki:
The music video was released in 1992 and was directed by Stéphane Sednaoui, who had previously made the video for the song "Give It Away". It makes heavy, experimental use of vibrant colors, with the background and costumes changing constantly. The Chilis themselves also adopt surreal appearances and behavior, with Kiedis for example having an overall Princess Leia-esque look, complete with robes and a "donut" hairstyle. The "Breaking the Girl" video is one of only two videos to feature Arik Marshall (who briefly acted as a replacement for guitarist John Frusciante) the other video being for "If You Have to Ask" - though he didn't play on either track. The video also features a brief cameo by River Phoenix, who was good friends with members of the band. The woman in the video is played by model/actress Patricia Velasquez.

The song was put on their Greatest Hits compilation, but the music video was not put on the DVD. The most likely explanation is that it featured Arik Marshall rather than Frusciante, who had quit the band early in 1992.

Código:
"Jungle Man" is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is the first track from their 1985 album, Freaky Styley. The song was written by Anthony Kiedis, and is about his best friend, the band's bassist Michael "Flea" Balzary. It was released as a single, and in the same year and there was a music video released for this song. The video features many different clips of live performances of the song edited together with the album version of the song playing on top.


Sobre Lindy Goetz:
Código:
Lindy Goetz became the band’s manager and, as a result, they played more live shows than ever. Time on the road was tough in the band’s little van, and they often stayed in seedy hotels between gigs. ‘What Is This?’ wasn’t fairing as well in the stormy musical seas. It therefore was no surprise, that in January 1984, Sherman was dumped for Hillel-they’re old pal.

"Catholic School Girls Rule" is a single from the 1985 album Freaky Styley by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The song is loosely based on a girl who attended a local Catholic school that singer Anthony Kiedis had a brief fling with.[1] A video for the single has been made and directed by longtime friend [b]Dick Rude[/b][2], but was often not aired or edited because of a nude scene, and because it also featured Kiedis singing from on a cross.[2] The video has only aired once on television making its only appearance on the Playboy Channel. The song has only been played live twice since 1987 though was recently played on April 19, 2007, which was the first time the band has played it since 1991 and only the second time with John Frusciante and Chad Smith.

The video for the song features Doug Wilson, who plays a deranged concertgoer who attempts to return a book to vocalist Anthony Kiedis, who left the book in his taxi in the video to "By the Way". The book he is returning to Kiedis is "Lexicon Devil", which is the biography of Darby Crash, the late frontman for the late 70's punk band The Germs. The music video was directed by longtime friend Dick Rude who also directed the video for "Catholic School Girls Rule" and the live DVD Off the Map.

True Man Don't kill Coyotes
Director: Graeme Whitler
Código:

A video was made for "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes". However, as few people heard the song, fewer people saw the video.

The clip, which used a lot of fluorescent colours, showed the band playing the song on a cartoonish desert-like scenario. In the beginning of the video, a farmer character pours a radioactive-labeled liquid substance into a patch of desert in front of a crudely assembled Hollywood sign. From this the entire band bursts from the ground, and begin to perform the song.
