I feel like looking at the work of another video director. How about a lesser known one, WIZ. Wiz may not be a director’s name that stands out like Samuel Bayer or Hype Williams. But WIZ has worked with many well known artists. WIZ is a former DJ who is now a part of Oil Factory (the same group of video directors that includes Sophie Muller). So have you ever seen a WIZ video? Hmmm. I don’t know. Like him, his videos are all for lesser known songs by established artists. For instance, he’s done a video for Smashing Pumpkins…during the Machina era. It’s not a well known song but it happens to be my favorite Pumpkins song. And WIZ gave it a stylish black and white that defies any good description. I’m told it’s an Oscar Wilde homage. Beats me but it’s a strange and cool video.

Song 305- “Stand Inside Your Love” by the Smashing Pumpkins
