Los Angeles-based director Young Replicant helms this gorgeous video for Flying Lotus’ track “Coronus, The Terminator” from the album You’re Dead. Excuse me while I watch it again – this is as good as it gets. Watch the video below.
When I interviewed director Hiro Murai back in November, he reminded me about director Daniel Wolfe’s videos for singer Plan B. There’s several of them, and they all seem to exist in the same universe. A similar thing is happening here with Hiro Murai and Childish Gambino, releasing this video for “Sober”, having already collaborated on “Telegraph Ave”, “Sweatpants”, and “3005”. I love seeing an artist and a director start to develop a language of their own.
Watch “Sober” below.
This is a stunner of a video; definitely one of the best I’ve seen this year. It’s not often you see something that feels this original. I love the poetic way the story is told here. Stellar performances from the actors, and really masterful work here from directors Truman & Cooper, who also directed one of my favourites last year as well (Kid Wise “Hope”). Watch the video for “Hell Yeah” below.
Super fresh style in this animation directed by Nicolas Ménard, for Tourist’s song “Illuminate”. The visual style is a nod to two video games: X (Gameboy), and Super World Runner (NES).
“In 1992, a man receives love letters in Korean. Since Google Translate doesn’t exist yet, he’s left confused. What could this mean?”
Watch the animation below.
A cheeky animation following a ticket man on a train, by one of the most talented illustrators working right now, Simon Landrein. The visual innuendos in this play out like the dialogue in a James Bond film. Watch the music video for “Masters Of The Gentlemanly Art” below.
