Ella Gibbins has loved music videos her whole life. As a teenager she binge-watched Rage, Fly TV, Video Hits, and box sets of her favourite music video directors Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry.
Now she’s a Sydney-based cinematographer who has helped create emotionally eclectic visuals set to high-concept stories for the beautiful songs of artists such as Rufus, Vera Blue, and Art vs Science.
Music videos have been a really cool way to create from the fusion of her other passions of philosophy, music, the cosmos, and art. And they have been a fantastic teacher in how art helps us constantly bend and play with reality and gives us the chance to immerse ourselves daily in other worlds.
