Whilst working with Kubrick, Chris directed his first music video, for Autechre's Second Bad Vilbel - a series of videos followed, with various alternative English rock bands - Cunningham learned the film-making ropes. In 1997, he directed the nightmarish sci-drama, named Come to Daddy (Aphex Twin) - catapulting him to elite status. Over the next two years, Cunningham directed thirteen distinctive short-films: six music-videos & seven commercials.
In 2000 Cunningham directed two short films for the Anthony D'Offay Gallery titled flex and Monkey Drummer. Those works showed a very modern and hyper-realistic take on the world. In 2005 Cunningham released Rubber Johnny, a six-minute short that showed just how disturbing a vision Chris has. It came released with a book whose photos are definitely unsafe for work.
