Music Video: Paul McCartney “Early Days”

Vincent Haycock directs this beauty of a music video for Paul McCartney’s song “Early Days”. A couple kids in Mississippi in the 50s form a band as McCartney sings about the early days, starting a band with John Lennon. One of my absolute favourites of the year so far. Watch the video below.

Video: Epic Japanese School Girl Chase

Love the idea for this video featuring Muneomi Senju, the drummer from the Japanese band, The Boredoms. The use of so many jump cuts here gives the whole thing a really weird unpredictable vibe to it. Watch the video below!

Each year, Nixon organises one of the most remote surf contests on the planet. Ten of the best European surfers are invited to an unknown surf destination, to battle against their own fears without the pressures of the public or the press. In June 2014, the wild terrain of Kamchatka, Russia, was chosen to host The Nixon Surf Challenge.

Watch “Hotel Nowhere – Kamtchatka” below.

One of my favourite video directors, Nabil, returns with another terrific video (you might remember this video for James Blake and this video for Just Blaze and Baauer). Alt-J’s “Hunger of the Pine” is a little bit violent, just to warn you. Watch the video below.

Music Video: Woodkid “The Golden Age” Featuring Max Richter “Embers”

woodkid-goldenage

“The Golden Age” is the final single and video from Woodkid’s debut album, and it is a stunner. He collaborated with composer Max Richter here so the music you hear is actually a blending of “The Golden Age” with a new version of Richter’s “Embers”.

Woodkid, whose real name is Yoann Lemoine, is simply operating on an entirely different level from everyone else. The guy’s only 31; he releases a concept album in a time where most artists are only concerned with singles, directs all his own videos (all of which were brilliant), oh, and found time to be Pharrell’s creative director.

I love his choice for the album’s videos to slowly change from really slick, effects-heavy, spectacles to the exact opposite. This is the type of video that gets me excited about photography.

Watch “The Golden Age” below.
