Mike Evin’s “Have I Ever Loved?”: simple concept, masterful execution. It’s A beautiful clip that accomplishes being funny, charming, heart-warming, and haunting all at once. Top-notch work here.
The Great Escape’s heavy soul tune “All I Think About” has a neat video conceit. I love it when something fun happens that I wasn’t expecting.
Natalie Prass’s “Why Don’t You Believe In Me” is a clever concept and a deconstructive criticism of makeup, beauty, and women’s identities as constructed by society. Don’t believe me? Check it:
I’m not gonna lie: Moon Duo’s “Animal” is one of the weirder videos I’ve ever seen. It features a dandy-style skateboarder skating on things that are not skateboards. It’s cool, in a “I’m not totally sure what’s happening” sort of way.
Powerdove’s “You Can Make Me Feel Bad” does the collage video right, providing an off-kilter, slightly-unsettling mix of images that portray the feel of the abstract, avant garde acoustic song.
