In the video for My Own Blood Blacksmif appears in a single dark space, rotating like a specimen observed, his performance is calm, expressionless.
Youness Benali provides the feelings via semi-naked dancers, encapsulating a single emotion. Everything rotates as simple lighting provides the focus.
Southend it isn't... Clemens Habicht and his crew set off for Caves Beach and Culburra Beach in Australia for this picture postcard promo to the serene beats of Eric Prydz' Liberate.
Shot largely underwater, Clemens documents a handsome couple as they frolic in the ocean under a blazing sun, creating a sense of euphoria, matching the soundtrack to perfection...
In De La Muerte's snappy and charming vid for Child Care's version of Hanging On The Telephone we witness Ed Cares' rise from milk-swigging nerd to ultra cool hipster with the help of a Blondie CD. So cool he can indulge in a spot of street nudity.
Definitely a cheeky little number.
Scott Altman painstakingly sets up camera body rigs for eight cast members and band for this hugely watchable promo to Fall Out by Ill Blu and Jake Isaac.
With both flowing and jerky motion, the end result is both fluid and mesmersing, and perfectly compliments the ambient beats of the soundtrack.
Just like in any number some real bad things are going to happen to those kids out in the woods, once they decide to go a-cavorting in the altogether, in the video for Joywave's Tongues featuring Kopps.
Throwbacks to a the past are matched with modern beats in Harrison's track Akira. Charlie Tyrell has brought together cool stuff redolent of the Eighties – the VHS, the DeLorean, the skateboard – shot them beautifully (lovely photography by Chet Tilokani) and set them against a kid with a big idea.
A VFX lightbulb plays centre stage in this chilled promo...
There's just over one week left to enter the new D&AD Next Director Award, in partnership with YouTube.
The Next Director Award is a brand new award created to unearth the best new directorial talent. Any genre of film is eligible, including:
Walter Martin, multi-instrumentalist with indie band The Walkmen, joins forces with KT Auleta for this wonderfully care-free promo to his solo track We Like The Zoo. Set in New York, the promo boasts a starring role for model-of-the-moment Lily McMenamy.
James Moore, director of the movie Mission To Lars, takes us out for a night on the bingo in his video for Erland & The Carnival's Quiet Love, which mixes drama and documentary.
Shot at Hayes Working Men's Club, it features Sienna Guillory as the waitress serving the pensioner-regulars, and intrigued by the man with the paper-bag head....
Sally Sibbet's Minger promo for Darq E Freaker is as gory as it is gruesome. Set in a London estate stripper-bait work to turn their latest victim into their new ruler.
An interesting transformation with plenty of blood and emotional lighting along the way works very well with Darq's old school techno.
