The Talks with Adam Yauch

July 3, 2012

Posthumously published interview with the late Adam Yauch of The Beastie Boys.

One of the reasons that I wanted to direct our music videos was that I disliked music videos so much. I basically hated music videos. From early on I was pretty much trying to go against what music videos were doing, so I was intentionally editing minimally, trying to leave shots on as long as I could just to go against everything that was on MTV that was like cutting as fast as they could.

The Beastie Boys always had the best music videos.
