Never let it be said that Yoko Ono doesn't practice truth in advertising. The octogenarian shakes what her mama gave her with a who's who of NYC hip celebs — including Mike D and Ad-Rock, Questlove, Reggie Watts, Ira Glass, Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori — none of whom are likely to impress those fools on So You Think You Can Dance.
Shot over five days in the Grand Tetons of Wyoming, this Dirty Projectors video stars long distance runner Alex Newport-Berra — who is also the brother of director Adam Newport-Berra — running through something beautiful in his mind as he goes through equally lovely terrain.
Gene Doe — aka the creative team of Christina Ladwig and Hanna Tviete — uses choreography to play out an emotional bond/break between Diane Birch and her double/opposite in both a black box studio and amid the harsh geometry of modern architecture.
Check out the latest we did for Reggie Watts and his frequent collaborator Benjamin Dicksinson. it is part of his new youtube channel called Jash, also feauring Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, and Tim & Eric.
Hmmm. Hype Williams directing a video for Bryan Ferry sounds like a genius idea...
HARRYS, directors: "When we heard the track it became clear that Chaz [Bundick, Toro Y Moi] was embodying a character. There is lots of hyperbole in this song, and we wanted to carry that into the video and create an aesthetic that exaggerated a certain lifestyle. It takes a lot from 90's rap videos but also shares some stylistic elements more in line with European art house films from the 70's and 80's. We chose to shoot it on 35mm film with anamorphic lenses because the video had to look like a real movie. Big ups to Hype Williams and Bryan Ferry." --> watch "So Many Details"
Playful animation accentuate this rap video journey through Chicago for an effect that feels like vintage Tribe Called Quest been tagged-up by a graffiti artist. --> "Rush Hour Traffic" plus a making-of

Rapture singer Luke Jenner lassoes a crumpled mylar food bag and rides it through Brooklyn, held aloft by the power of two shofar and shell blowing pseudo-Hasids. Only in Brooklyn, kids, only in Brooklyn. --> watch "Sail Away"

Directing team Chic and Artistic deliver something, well, chic and artistic for DJ/producer Kaskade and Dragonette singer Martina Sorbara. Set up as a photo shoot, Kaskade works the camera while Martina poses and vamps — often in reverse — while also displaying a pair of sparkler pumps that I hope become the stripper stiletto of choice.) --> watch "Fire In Your New Shoes"
