Music Videos to Film: 500 Hundred Days Of Summer

20 07 2009

Music video director, Marc Webb, has directed videos for Regina Spektor, My Chemical Romance, Evanescence, Fergie, and Hot Hot Heat to just name a few. He now has his big-screen directing debut with 500 Days Of Summer, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel . Apparently, his music video background shows in this American romantic comedy with a dance number complete with an animated blue jay as well as a split-screen segment. The soundtrack also was carefully put together with songs by Regina Spektor, Temper Trap and Feist, as well as a Smiths cover by Deschanel’s musical side-project, She & Him.

We were busy chasing down live music at Sundance back in January and missed the premiere of the film. But lucky for us and you, it opened in select theaters on July 17th.
