Dougal Wilson directs a video in a french forest with burried dancing bushes. Is she a wood nymph?
Matt Dilmore makes the job of road kill and animal corpse collecting seem that little bit more friendly.
Directed by Elliot Jokelson where we see an animated video inside a mental hospital like One flew over the cukoos nest in crayon coz thats all they were allowed to use.
Cut up tons of porno mags and make a protest with sticky fingers. Maria Mochnacz directs this collage video stop frame fest.
Jesse Ewles makes a stop frame live action, animation and cut out thing with cardboard box fly type characters and I think some KFC.
Skinny New Zealand based racing car driver wakes up and then speeds around track and then everyone is happy. Directed by Sam Peacocke this mini epic was much liked especially the air craft hanger.
Diamond Dogs turn the Ray of the song into a homage to Ray Harryhausen the director and stop frame animation/live action pioneer who directed such classics as Jason and the Argonauts. Anyhow one of the band is a moonlighting and going mad and creates a .. oh watch it its great....
Director: Diamond Dogs. The duo enjoyed a hugely prolific run last year, with inventive work for a wide range of British acts, including The Enemy, The Black Ghosts, 12 Stone Toddler and Newton Faulkner. And their hugely entertaining video for The Hoosiers’ Worried about Ray, was one of the surprise hits of 2007.
The video for Kylie Minogue’s Slow created by directors Terry
Duthu and Kevin Phillips (and producer Trey Hock) – all recent graduates of Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia – is a junkyard-glam performance video crossed with martial arts surrealist fantasy. It won three Radar prizes, including the Popular Vote award, gaining an incredible 600,000 votes on the Dazed & Confused website.
Diane Martel directs a bull fight.
