When I think of films, TV-shows, commericals, etc., I don’t like to divide them into “high art” and “low art”. So I really hate the title of this thread. If artists like to explore various fields of entertainment, let them.
The results may be cool.
Like this Takeshi Kitano ad for his Nintendo game:
Random and funny.
This is a better Kitano ad for his “Takeshi’s Challenge” game. Which is about as weird as that ad. Among other things it involves singing karaoke for one hour and defeating a boss that takes 10,000 punches.
I have respect for Television directors and for Music Video directors, but I don’t respect directors who make commercials for a living very much. It’s different when it’s a great director making a commercial, but on the whole, commercials aren’t really a form of art.
