In less than a decade, since his student years at Concordia University, Louis Philippe Eno has made nearly a hundred video clips—a furious rate of production. In 2005, two of his works garnered ADISQ nominations for “Video of the Year”: Vénus, produced for Dumas, and Saskatchewan, made for Les Trois Accords, which was also nominated for “Best French Video” at that year’s MuchMusic Awards.
In 2006, Eno took part in the inaugural edition of Music Video at the Musée with his Montréal -40oC for Malajube and, in 2007, his Pâte Filo won the MuchMusic Award for “Best French Video.” Eno has worked with Malajube, Pierre Lapointe, Plants and Animals, Les Cowboys Fringants, The Hidden Cameras, Mickey 3D, Les Dales Hawerchuk, and many more. Recently, he shot thirteen videos during a David Lynch photo session for the project Dark Night of the Soul, a musical collaboration by Danger Mouse and SparkleHorse, and “perhaps the most intense creative experience of my entire life,” he says.
In 2009, Eno’s short film Jonathan et Gabrielle won the Focus Grand Prize for Best Canadian Short Film at the Festival du nouveau cinéma in Montréal. At a time when he is concentrating more on making shorts, this sixth edition of our Music Video series will present seven of his most important works in video format, revisiting the very rich, dense period of his early professional career: ten years of creative output in the world of pop music and culture.
