The Goddess that is Floria Sigismondi is back in action.
She is currently working on her first feature film. The awesome Sigismondi (love that name!) is both writing and directing this film, which is a coming of age story based on the '70s all girl rock n roll band, the Runaways.
Fans of her photography & music videos will be salivating just thinking about how unreal the cinematography will be in the movie. For art-direction, she is second to none.
Some of the most innovative music videos of the past few years have had the Sigismondi touch on them:
"Beautiful People" - Marilyn Manson
"Broken Boy Soldier" - The Raconteurs
"Hurt" - Christina Aguilera
"Red Flag" - Billy Talent
"Supermassive Black Hole" - Muse
"O' Sailor" - Fiona Apple
"Blue Orchid" - The White Stripes
"The End of The World" - The Cure
"Talk Shows on Mute" - Incubus
"Megalomaniac" - Incubus
"Fighter" - Christina Aguilera
"Obstacle 1" - Interpol
"Untitled 1 (Vaka)" - Sigur Rós

You can also find a short film she wrote and directed called Postmortem Bliss here.
And as if it wasn't already obvious: I am going to sign off with my favourite video from the master herself.
