Spectacle Director Showcase: Leo Baker

In celebration of our Spectacle exhibition, we’re interviewing Australian filmmakers who have created some of our country’s most iconic music videos to date.

In the latest instalment of our Director Showcase, celebrated animator Leo Baker discusses working with Australian band Children Collide to create a hybrid live-action and animation video for their song Praying for Sunshine.

Aside from making music videos, Baker was also one of the lead animators on the Oscar-winning screen adaptation of Shaun Tan’s acclaimed The Lost Thing.

Stay tuned to hear about the filmmaking experiences of other prominent Australian music video directors. If you missed our previous Spectacle Director Showcase interviews with Oh Yeah WowPaul Goldman and Natasha Pincus, be sure to check them out.

Full versions of the interviews will be made available in the Australian Mediatheque.

Spectacle: The Music Video Exhibition is a historic collection of clips, recreated sets, props and costumes that spans the history of music videos. Open from Thursday 26 September – Sunday 23 February.
