Missy Eliotts One Minute Man Music Video Nominated For Six Video Music Awards Including Best Cinematography

Video Shot With Cooke S4 Prime Lenses

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2005 -- Dave Meyers is one of the busiest directors in the music industry having helmed clips for such artists as Janet Jackson, Enrique Iglisias, No Doubt, B2K, Mick Jagger, Jennifer Lopez, Ja Rule, Pink, Dido, and Missy Elliott. His work with Creed in My Sacrifice shows he is not a director to be taken lightly.

In particular, though, Missy Elliotts One Minute Man, featuring Ludacris & Trina, nominated for six MTV Video Music Awards, is a fine example of Dave Meyers direction at its best. His work coupled with Kasten Crash Gopinath, Director of Photography, made this video into a huge success, and garnered it Video Music Award nominations for Best Hip Hop, Best Director, Best Special Effects, Best Art Direction, Best Editing and Best Cinematography. Crash used Cooke S4 Prime lenses when filming One Minute Man music video.

Cooke, a storied name in both cinemagraphic and the ultra-high-end professional photography markets, is often selected by the top directors of photography who make the most visible motion pictures (Ray, Under the Tuscan Sun, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), television series (Alias, Six Feet Under, Life as We Know It) , and television commercials (Nike, McDonalds, Coke, BMW, Avon).

Music videos are, in effect, short motion pictures, and often the best motion picture and television directors and DPs are asked to direct many of the high-end videos, notes Les Zellan, Chairman and CEO of Cooke Optics. Its no wonder they want to work with the same highest quality equipment to deliver the finest end product.

Known worldwide for their precision, exacting tolerances and superior quality, Cooke lenses are specified by many of the most renowned directors of photography and cinematographers in Hollywood. Cooke S4 Prime lenses, acclaimed for their unique mechanical design and extraordinary photographic qualities, have been used to shoot several of the most renowned and visually beautiful motion pictures of all time, both in Hollywood and internationally.
