For BUG 06 we have a selection of some exceptionally creative music videos from around the world, and welcome in two young directors who are making some of the most creative music videos produced in London right now, in the teeth of the new reality of British music video production – Henry Scholfield and James Copeman.
Directors Diamond Dogs Phil and Olly create a Dickensian Romp.
Directed by Montreal-based Olivier Groulx and Tracy Maurice – the art director of the Arcade Fire Neon Bible album cover.. the spirit of the original Surrealist cinema of Dalí and Buñuel, with elements of Maurice’s album’s artwork.
Director Uwe Flade goes to Vietnam and look what he found! Everyone travels by scooter!
TV on the Radio's "Me-I" centers on the fantastic life of an ordinary pigeon whose active imagination keeps turning his dreams into nightmares. Directed by Mixtape Club and Dani Garcia
Rozan & Schmeltz mess it up large big time stylee. Horror among horrors and noise terror too.
The new video for the Mystery Jets features a charming and colourful band performance while they lie flat out on the studio floor – courtesy of some completely visible hidden helpers and a mysterious contraption that moves the band in and out of shot. And teenage new folk hope and guest vocalist Laura Marling joins the party halfway through.
Directed by James Copeman
Toon Aerts directs the second part of what was supposed to a trilogy before Belgiums greatest rock band in my humble opinon of not knowing any other belgium rock bands split up...his is the sequel to "Battles Across The Stereospectrum". A Scumproductions film.
Some fire and a girl in her pants. What more could you ask for.
Directed by Spike Jonze and Kanye West
From his Shed Adam Buxton directed this music video for Spoon. It is known as a fan video as the band did not ask for it to be made. Adam showed it to them and I think they thought he was as stalker.
A buzz is building about Ray Tintori, a 24 year old director from Brooklyn – and it’s largely because of this.
Tintori’s fantastic video for MGMT’s Time To Pretend is psychedelic, raw, dazzling – and made in 3D (although we’ll make do with the regular version here).
Directed by Ray Tintori.
