Jelani Blackman "Lockjaw" (Joao Retorta, dir.)

Informed by a line in the chorus - ‘My dons going straight to the topfloor', the video for Jelani Blackman’s ‘Lockjaw’ sees camera moving up a staircase at an undisclosed location, constantly finding Jelani on each flight in a fake one-shot. It’s a technique based concept presented in a very rugged manner. Camera moves hand-held at all times and without a clear sense of horizon at moments, creating a somewhat disorientating and claustrophobic feel as we keep moving up but never really go anywhere. - Joao

Tom Misch "Water Baby" (Georgia Hudson, dir.)

I thought that Water Baby wanted to be something poetic and subtly surreal that gave time to the lyrics and felt like a good flowing piece of liquid like restraint.  The track has a kind of honest simplicity, it also has a proper classic groove to it, so I wanted to go in with some old school, simple, stripped back dancing to match - I saw the video immediately when I heard it, that first shot of a person dancing from a frozen sky, lucidly tripping at moonlight, I’m a sucker for a beautiful image.

Tom Misch "Movie" (Joshua Osborne, dir.)

A beautiful track & video inspired by home movie footage of Tom Misch's grandparents Margriet & Klaus Misch. The footage shows their lives from the couple in love to very hard times in Europe during World War II.

From Joshua Osborne:

"This was definitely a unique experience and process and I thoroughly enjoyed working closely with the whole family to ensure we execute their story in the most respectful way."

Loyle Carner "Sun of Jean" (Joao Retorta, dir.)

With his debut album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ nominated for tonight prestigious Mercury prize, Loyle Carner releases the new video for ‘Sun of Jean’ with Joao Retorta back at the helm.  

A nostalgic, honest and delicate depiction of unconditional love between mothers and their sons, exquisitely executed by Joao.

Everything crossed for tonight, a worthy winner we reckon.

Loyle Carner "The Isle Of Arran" (Georgia Hudson, dir.)

Loyle Carner's new video 'The Isle Or Arran' directed by Georgia Hudson focuses on the relationship fathers have with their children. 

Loyle says " I just wanted to celebrate the [fathers] who are doing right and sticking around, because they're shedding the stereotype." 

The video sees the South Londoner taking a stroll around a surreal hospital ward, ending up with a group of young fathers with their babies.

Loyle Carner "Stars & Shards" (Anna Ginsburg + Gworge, dir.)

Anna Ginsburg & Gworge team up to create this live action / animation mix for Loyle Carner's new song "Stars & Shards". 

Anna Ginsburg, director: "Loyle Carner 'Stars and Shards' is a mixture of hand drawn animation + live-action. Animation was the perfect medium in which to visualise such rich and humorous lyrical content. Plus Loyle Carner has beautiful freckles, magnetic energy and a lot of talent."

Superfood "TV" (Zac Ella, dir.)

Zac Ella, director:

Daydreaming can cause the mind to wander into a series of unexplainable wormholes..just like channel surfing on TV.

One moment you are in one place... the next moment you are in another place... and the next you just have no recollection in where you are or how you got there...and now I'm about to start waffling.

This is a music video for SUPERFOOD's track entitled TV. Viva 4:3!

Superfood "Melting" (Zac Ella, dir.)

Zac Ella, director:

"It's a fun experimental idea that simply compares four different video recording devices and formats.

More specifically 16mm film, Video8, MiniDV and DSLR (CF CARD).

We aimed to do a one shot - filming and playing everything back in real time with SUPERFOOD playing live.

But - we hit a problem with the Bell and Howell (16mm Camera) - it could only record for around 40secs.

We mapped out a floorplan for our team of Camera-Ops to follow and keep in-sync with movements.
