Giovanni Bucci is a director, motion designer, and musician. His work ranges from commercials to title sequences and from composing music to creating music videos. He is best known for his work as a music video director and as the poly-instrumentalist behind the alt-metal band ODDKO. He is particularly recognized for his work for the Korn videos “Never Never” and “Love & Meth.” He is also known for the music video “Disobey,” which he created for his band ODDKO, and for which he wrote the music, played several of the instruments, and created the video from concept to post-production with the help of his production company, Void ‘N’ Disorder.[1]


Giovanni Bucci was born in 1981[2] to an Italian father and Dutch mother.[3] He graduated from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome in 2005[2], and after a while moved to London, and eventually LA, to be closer to the heart of the entertainment industry.[4] Here, he is very active as a motion designer, in particular for film title sequences, like Pacific Rim: Uprising,[5] Beauty and the Beast,[6] Star Trek: Beyond,[7] and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,[8] He has also created commercials and promos for, among others, Red Bull, MTV, and Netflix.[9] He is most well-known, however, as the creator of music videos for Korn and his band ODDKO.

Music videos and awards

In 2011, Bucci was selected as Staff Pick on Vimeo for his short “Addictions.”[10] [11]

In 2014, Bucci won a UK Film Festival Award[12]and a Silver Telly Award for Best Music Video for Korn's highly stylized "Never Never,"[13] a video in which the band is performing on a CGI clock, and battle the witch that controls the inexorable hand of time.[14] He went on to win an American Movie Award for Best Music Video for Korn’s next release, “Love & Meth."[15]

In November of 2018, Bucci released the first music video for his band ODDKO: “Disobey,” which was praised by magazines such as Consequence of Sound,[1] and Dread Central[16] and won a Silver Telly for Art Direction,[17] and a Bronze for Best Music Video,[18] as well as Best Metal Video and Best Horror Video, with a Nomination for Visually Stunning, at the LA Music Video Awards.[19] Dan Sarto of AWN said about Bucci's style: "[it has a] Sleek, stylized visual design, stark, provocative subject matter, broodingly dark color schemes and a judicious use of jump cuts - the kind that, after repeated viewing, make it suddenly seem plausible your cat has been trying to suffocate you as you sleep [...]"[20]

In June of 2019, Bucci directed the Fleshgod Apocalypse music video, “Sugar,”[21] and shortly thereafter Bucci was also called upon to direct their next video, “Monnalisa,” which Francesco Paoli called “a cinematic video that looks as good as a high-end fashion film.”[22]

In Summer of 2020, quite topically, Bucci released the post-apocalyptic music video “D4TM," which he created for his band ODDKO, and which portrays how humans can be misled by the big promises of pharmaceuticals..[23]
