49: Marc Webb, Director
Or stream below:
Before director Marc Webb was handed the keys to the Spider Man franchise (he directed both Amazing Spider Man movies), he made the 500 Days Of Summer – a film that wove music and image together in a deeply compelling way.
Before he made his first feature film, he directed nearly 150 music videos for artists ranging from Maroon 5 to My Chemical Romance, AFI to Miley Cyrus, Green Day to Santana.
And before he did any of that, he went to high school in Madison, Wisconsin with me! Here he tells the story of how a theater kid from the Midwest went on to make his mark on music videos, and then on the big screen, how he handles the expectations of the job, stays in touch with his creative instincts, and what makes a good director.
