Lord Danger’s Mike Diva, known for vibrant and wildly original films that blend animation and live action, has teamed up with rappers Yung Pinch and Lil Skies to create a haunting neo-future music video for their new track, "Nightmare.” Set to a song about heartbreak stemming from one’s inner demons, the video employs Japanese and anime inspired imagery to create a world where our troubles manifest and materialize into the masks we wear — and where the damage done is deadly.
A young man goes on holiday alone, and as his agitated demeanour suggests, he is not like other boys...
Ivana Bobic's video for Nothing But Thieves casts a spell where we are intrigued to know more about the young man (played by Ceallach Spellman) who heads for the packaged holiday hotel, with something other on his mind other than fun in the sun.
SKUNK's Jonathan 'JJ' Augustavo directs 'Bag Girls', one of four beautiful crafted videos to be released for SOULS. JJ creates an authentic culture biopic of America from his unique perspective, "A postcard of this country that is not based on stereotype but actually something real and spiritual."
JJ Augustavo, director: “Not since my work on the Same Love (Macklemore) film have I felt a deeper and more powerful connection. Selfishly this was an experience I needed as a director, artist and person… it was the hardest, most stressful and trying process for all of us but in the end what we made is beautiful and authentic. And in a way I fell in love with filmmaking again because of it. You could have given this project to a million different directors and had so many different and amazing projects, however what I made is my perspective of my country. Of what America is. To a mixed Filipino-American from Seattle collaborating with a white guy from Ohio, a chino-Latino from the Bay and a producer from London. A postcard of this country that is not based on stereotype but actually something real and spiritual. We bled to make this and I could not be more proud…there are hundreds of wild stories of how this was made, the stress, the doubt, the lack of sleep - but ultimately it’s a set of films I love and hold dear to my heart."
An impressively cinematic clip for Danish band Phlake, shot in Cape Town by Sashinski for their song Pregnant, starts with the tension of a bank robbery, and then flashes back to the same man behind the motorcycle helmet, working as a cook at a diner, then meeting and falling for a newly-employed waitress.
After a steamy romance, the pair move in together and the waitress falls pregnant, and the pressures begin - especially as it coincides with him being laid off work. Which then brings us back to the bank robbery which starts the video...
Craig Moore follows up his superb rollerskating extravaganza in Sigala's Sweet Lovin' with an equally trick-heavy spectacle for Tiggs Da Author's Run, featuring singer Lady Leshurr.
This time - instead of staging contortionist feats, rollerskating pirouettes and BMX tricks - Moore captures the awesome, ridiculously risky world of South Africa's car spinning stuntmen. There's some really breathtaking tricks performed here.
Calum Macdiarmid has just completed ‘Into the Glass’, his ethereal new music video for singer/songwriter Laura Doggett’s latest track from her newly released EP.
The story of escaping an unhealthy relationship is told through a mixture of conceptual narrative and performance, scored by Laura’s unique, distinctive voice that many in the industry have described as ‘spine-tingling’.
Irrum, director: "The band said that they felt like they were ready to shave their heads and go to war with this new record, and they wanted a video that represented that feeling. It felt like the perfect opportunity to reimagine a completely new world, rather than a representation of psychedelia we have seen before. I came up a concept that solely focused on an evolution of color; a giant spinning wheel that diffused colour to birds, botanics, and statues of the band themselves.
