Spike Jonze has been a skateboarder, a video director — even an occasional stuntman. Now he’s a major director and a minor movie star.
Spike has been managed by Satellite Filmssince 1992, and in 1997, he signed an overall first-look development and production deal with Propaganda films for fetures and TV projects, and its subsidiary Satellite Films for commercial and video representation.
Aside from his directing, he has also appeared in various TV and short movies including Pig!, directed by Francine McDougall, where he plays a nose picker, and in the Pond video for “Spokes” where he’s a Hollywood Blvd. punker named Ricky. He has had other bit roles in Mi Vida Loca, Three Kings and The Game.
Spike Jonze is regarded as one of the most famous directors of commercials and music videos. He was nominated for the Academy Award in the category of producer and director in television and film. Jonze is well known for his contribution in the movies entitled “Adaptation” released in 2002 and “Being John Malkovich” a 1999 release. Jonze is also the co-producer of the popular program “Jackass” aired through the MTV television network.
I see Spike Jonze as a multi talented person. I imagine that the work he does are not easy tasks and therefor consider him as a hard-working and valued member of the creative community.
