BUG 27

Blazing a trail with the latest white-hot nuggets from the burning furnaces of new music video creativity, BUG 27 features videos for Battles, Tom Vek, Justice, Oh Land and OK Go – and a rather controversial Jonestown vid for Cults.


Work from some of our favourite directors of the year grace our September 2011 shows at the BFI Southbank – like Daniels, Saam Farahmand, and the Barcelona-based trio of directing wizards known confusingly as Canada.


This show is also strong on new animation work, with East London-based animation crew Treat Studios - responsible for splendid vids for Mazes and Crystal Antlers, are Adam's special guests at the September 22nd show.

16Bit – Dinosaurs

Director Kristofer Ström is an influential Scandinavian animator and illustrator. Distilling the killer qualities of prehistoric beasts to their bare essentials: rows of gigantic teeth, crunching jaws and stomping feet. It’s bloody awesome.

Martin Brooks – Golden Tree

Ninian Doff video for blues-folk troubadour Martin Brooks’s Golden Tree saw the pair and a few other friends head off to Walthamstow Marsh on their bikes to execute ‘a professional display of 50 No Handed Bike Moves’ – as approved by the Official Federation of No Handed Bikes Skills.


This short film, which also acts as a music video for the post-rock noodling of Apparat’s Granular Bastard. Created by Céline Desrumaux – one half of animation/direction team Céline & Yann – it’s pretty much explained by its title.
