At 57 years old, Mike Mills physical status not available right now. We will update Mike Mills's height, weight, eye color, hair color, build, and measurements.
Mike Mills has created music videos for acts including Moby, Yoko Ono and Air. Air named the fifth song on their album Talkie Walkie after Mills.
He has also worked as a graphic designer on promotional material and album covers for such acts as Beastie Boys, Beck, Sonic Youth, They Might Be Giants, and Ol' Dirty Bastard. In addition he has created graphics for X-Girl, Marc Jacobs, and produces his own line of posters and fabrics called Humans by Mike Mills.
Mills played guitar and performed background vocals with the short-lived indie rock band Butter 08 along with Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto, Russell Simins of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and Rick Lee of Skeleton Key. The band released one self-titled album in 1996 on the now defunct Grand Royal record label.
Thumbsucker (2005) was his feature-film directorial debut, for which he also created the film posters. In 2007, Mills filmed the feature-length documentary Does Your Soul Have A Cold?, which explored the issues around the introduction of anti-depressants to Japanese culture. The film premiered at SXSW Festival and was part of IFC's documentary film series. He followed this up with Beginners in 2010.
His next feature film was 20th Century Women, starring Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig, Elle Fanning and Billy Crudup. The film had its world premiere at the New York Film Festival, and was released on December 28, 2016, by A24.
He has released some of his art/documentary photography works with the two books, Gas Book 11 (2003) and Humans (2006). In 2009, the Berlin-based culture magazine 032c devoted an issue to Mills. For the occasion Mills was interviewed by Nick Currie, best known for his work as Momus, in a piece called "Getting Through the New Depression".
In 2019, he directed the short film I Am Easy to Find starring Alicia Vikander, which accompanied the album of the same name by The National.
Mills' latest directorial feature film starring Joaquin Phoenix, titled C'mon C'mon, had its world premiere on 2 September 2021 at Telluride Film Festival.
When Taylor Swift released "Red (Taylor's Version)" in November 2021, the second of her rerecorded albums, she also directed "All Too Well: The Short Film." The almost-15-minute video stars Sadie Sink and Dylan O'Brien as a couple who fall in love and break up, all to the tune of "All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version)." In addition to serving as the short's director, Swift appears at the end as the older and wiser version of Sink's character, complete with red hair. On 12 Aug., The Hollywood Reporter reported that the film is eligible for an Oscar at the 2023 ceremony, competing in the best live-action short category.
At first glance, the short's chance at a statue might be confusing for movie-lovers. The eligibility period for feature-length films — the ones that compete for best picture and best documentary — is 1 Jan. to 31 Dec. But the eligibility window for shorts is 1 Oct., 2021, to 30 Sept., 2022, making Swift's November film eligible for a 2023 award. "All Too Well: The Short Film" premiered at AMC Lincoln Square on 12 Nov. and ran there for a week, which is all it needs to qualify for Oscar consideration.
