British filmmaker Baillie Walsh announced himself to the world as maestro of the music video. His prolific credits include the video for Massive Attack’s “Unfinished Sympathy”—famously filmed in one take in downtown LA—and the poolside promo for Kylie Minogue’s “Slow,” which won the CAD Award for Best Pop Video. Since then, he has directed his dramatic feature-film debut, 2008’s Flashbacks of a Fool, starring Daniel Craig and Felicity Jones, and has filmed the likes of Anne Hathaway for Lancome and a 3D portrait of Kate Moss. Walsh has helmed two music documentaries: a concert tour diary for Oasis, Lord Don’t Slow Me Down, and a crowd-sourced fan documentary on The Boss, titled Springsteen & I.
