Watch: Spike Jonze Short For Opening Ceremony, Darren Aronofsky Directs Ad For Yves Saint Laurent

With only 3 feature films to his credit over the last 12 years, Spike Jonze has still managed to keep busy in the world of commercials and the occasional music video. His latest is a collaboration between world reknown cellist Yo-Yo Ma and famed LA dancer Lil Buck. (As a member of The Playlist staff put it "that kid is like spaghetti.") It's more a case of Jonze assembling these two artists in one place and less of a Jonze directed short film, but it's still pretty unbelievable to watch. Jonze says this of the project, "The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck's own creation and unlike anything I've seen. Hope you enjoy."

Also released recently is a 2 minute spot for Yves Saint Laurent we first heard about a few months ago directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring his "Black Swan" actor Vincent Cassel. The dialogue-free, long form commercial was written by frequent collaborators Ari Handel ("The Fountain") and Mark Heyman ("Black Swan," "The Wrestler") with a score composed by Clint Mansell. You can check out the seductive spot below. [Opening Ceremony/Trendland]
