Garth Jennings

The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
A lot of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fans were wondering what in the hell their dream movie was doing in the hands of a music video director. Well, it sounds like the final product, directoral-wise at the very least, will appease most fans and create some new ones.

For those unfamiliar with director Garth Jennings, his music video credits are quite impeccable, but you still have to give Disney some props for giving him the reigns on this considering it's his first product.

Jennings' music videos include several for Badly Drawn Boy ("Silent Sigh," "Disillusion," "Pissing in the Wind," and "Something to Talk About";) Fatboy Slim's "Right Here, Right Now," and more for REM, Blur, Supergrass, Travis, Pulp (just to name a few.)

Here's a playlist of 14 of the songs he's made videos from the past 10 years.
