you see those tall hooded mirror-faced people so much these days....

this is what its from
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPi9i3gfSAM


not sure if that was worth watching for the few seconds of relevant footage.

a more recent and more watchable clip that uses the same technique (as in from 2009) happens to be one of my favourite songs of the last year:

Jonathan Boulet - Public Service Announcement. love the song. the video is, like a lot of australian music videos, nothing to do with the song.

That's how I prefer it most of the time.  Experimentation that captures the nature of the music.  They do sort of eerily fit.

I know this probably isn't the thread for it. But Maya Deren's a really interesting character, making some of the more original american experimental short films in the 1940s. See this:

yeah i know about her, i read her wikipedia page.

i just think a clip that boring should have come with a warning. especially when the relevant part was 3mins into it and then a bit at the end. you can set the starting time on youtube clips for halfway or whatever to facilitate this, rather than exposing some of us to extremely tedious avant-garde that is near impossible to watch unprepared.

What are your top 5 music videos in the last 5 years? I was thinking I would make a top 5 music videos ever list, but realized they would all be from awhile ago. Can someone educate me on who's doing it big lately?

This is just a personal list, mostly to draw attention to a few that don't normally get attention.

Margot & The Nuclear So and So's - Quiet as a Mouse (perfect band, perfect song, perfect video)

Nico Vega - Gravity (there's something legitimately shocking to me about the violence in this video, which is saying a lot from someone as jaded as I am.  I don't know what it is, but I like it)

Death Cab for Cutie - Little Bribes (fan-made video, better than 99% of professional music videos)

Coldplay - Life in Technicolor II (yeah, I know, Coldplay... but this song and video are both great)

Ellie Goulding - Starry-Eyed (the video's nothing special, but this artist and this song in particular are my favorite new things)

A Fine Frenzy - Blow Away (the ultimate feel-good song, and an utterly charming video)
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Talking Heads have a lot of good videos, most David Byrne had a hand in directing, or co-directing. True Stories is interesting, too. It really needs a Widescreen release with a bonus CD with all the actor versions of the songs.

Pretty old, but just came across this the other day.

http://vimeo.com/1241608

Pretty cool to see what these guys can do on a self produced shoot. As opposed to http://www.elnino.tv/category/megaforce/

great concept, great cast.

the director's site explains a bit about where it came from:

Diesel "The Duel"

Promo made for the band Dancing Pigeons, that Diesel supports through Diesel U:Music.
A longer short film version will be released on Diesel.com soon.
The film is based on Diesel’s theme for their new collection - Fire & Water.

he's got a few other noteworthy projects, including a short film called "Sorry i'm late" made using the seemingly obligatory method (overhead shot of stop motion live animation) used in countless videos and short films since time began. good for him tho, cos he seems to put in a lot of hard work, whoever he is.

R. Kelly - Real Talk



How much of this is a comedy act and how much is R&B?

Please re-add that link to your top post there.  This video is that important to me.
