|Today new series starts at NRRules: 80s Videoclips.|
Let's start with music videos of famous polish director. Zbig Rybczynski (pronounced Rib-CHIN-ski) was born in Poland in 1949. Since graduating from the Lodz Film School in the early 1970s, he has worked as a film director in Europe and the United States. His work has received many prestigious industry awards in the United States, Japan and Europe. The awards include an Academy Award in 1983 for Tango, an Emmy for Special Effects in 1990 for The Orchestra, the Prix Italia, the Golden Gate Award in San Francisco and the awards at the Electronic Cinema Festival Tokyo/Montreaux. Among his other numerous awards are three MTV Awards, American Video Awards, Monitor Awards and the Billboard Music Video Awards.
Zbig is a pioneer of the High Definition television technology, and an innovator and experimentator in the technical field. He holds several US patents, most of them for innovative ideas in film and video making, including the "Zbig" software for matting. |
Rybczynski created about 40 videoclips during the 80s. I managed to find 28 at Youtube. Famous clips absent there are for instance: Simple Minds - Alive and Kicking, Mick Jagger - Let's Work, Angel and Maimone - Ultima Ballo, Grandmaster Flash - Sign of the Times, Rickie Lee Jones - The Real End.
Believe me that his experimental movies are much more creative than these music videos.
