Black Pumas' music video Colors explores the bonds of a young family living in the Bronx. They are displaced after unforeseen circumstances take the family to unexpected places. Despite the challenges facing them, they find joy, hope, and each other. The landscape of the Bronx is celebrated as a beautiful place, and Eric Burton’s evocative movements and dance explore the emotions and the shifts we experience in life.

If And When
A constant sense of movement is created by using hundreds of still photographs of NYC, looped to create a hypnotic stop motion video for Amana Melomé's powerful song 'If And When'. Production Company: dreambear (www.dreambear.org) Director/DP/Editor: Ynon Lan Producer: Evan Brown www.melomemusic.com
Last I Heard (… He Was Circling The Drain)
A five-minute video by the Brooklyn-based experimental studio Art Camp, and co-directed by Art Camp and Saad Moosajee. The film is set, according to a statement, “in a dream world inspired by fragments of Thom Yorke and [frequent Radiohead and Yorke collaborator] Stanley Donwood’s imagination”.
A music video for the Providence, Rhode Island art/noise band Daughters, 'Less Sex' is a visual meditation on restraint and aggression. Jeremy W. directs frontman Alexis Marshall and model Christine Adams in an expectedly intense and evocative performance. Composed in a minimalist black and white photographic style using oppressive and seductive imagery, 'Less Sex' is a juxtaposition of human beauty and ugliness.
Hurricane Maria hit Dominica, the U. S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico in 2017, devastating the landscape and causing over three thousand deaths. In light of this terrible tragedy, Hurray for the Riff Raff’s song ‘Pa’Lante’, meaning ‘onwards’ or ‘forwards’, is a cry for hope amongst despair. Kristan Mercado’s award-winning video accompanies this song and successfully unites personal and national crises with an emotional gut punch that is almost impossible to attain with headlines and statistics.

Stop-motion music video for The Slow Show song ‘Testing’. The themes of loneliness, depression and agoraphobic behaviour are visited through both the song and character of Jan, a man cocooned in the four walls of his flat, struggling with his demons and the thoughts of getting out into the world again. "When I heard The Slow Show, I was immediately drawn in to their style of music, the deep vocals combined with rich instrumentals really stood out to me. After becoming friends with the band (Fred, the keyboardist was my next-door neighbour), I asked them if they would consider allowing me to have a shot at making a film for ‘Testing’, a song I loved from the moment I heard it. Happily, they agreed. "We sat down and talked about various ideas, and decided that a simple idea of a person struggling with their own demons of being in “a dark-place” would complement the song. Stop-motion was the ideal medium; when people see the puppet of Jan, they feel warmth towards him, they think he’s cute. Then when they realise he is alone and fed-up, that feeling becomes one of sorrow and sympathy, which is the emotion the music evokes. Jan the puppet is only 10 inches high and the viewer knows this. However, the loneliness and solitude of his life makes him seem even smaller, and therefore, more delicate. "Various influences played a part in the making of Testing. The setting of the lonely-but-cosy flat was influenced by my own life when I was in my 20s and lived in a high-rise in Salford. The exterior is Manchester, its landscape of warehouses and railway arches are where I live and are deep-rooted in the ‘northern’ sound of the band. Animations such as 'Going Equipped' by Aardman animations and 'Next' by Barry Purves were inspirations, simply because of their well-observed, single-character performances. Terry Gilliam’s cutout sequences from Monty Python certainly inspired the film’s opening."
