Gorgeous music video shot in the Tatras Mountains of Eastern Europe

Andrew Bayer's hypnotic downtempo jam "Need Your Love" gets an appropriately pretty visual treatment from London-based Polish director Michal Bolland, who traveled with his crew to the Tatras Mountains (on the border between Poland and Slovakia) to get the job done. The video's Polish slant is furthered by the casting, with the stunning Kasia Smolinska playing the lead role as a girl lost in the......read more

'Crowded' is a dystopian story of our jam-packed planet

With the global population at 7.2 billion and growing at a rate of almost 400,000 people a day (!), overpopulation is as timely a topic as ever.

Ghostly, double-exposed photographs depict people as faint memories

Fleeted Happenings is a collection of images by Andrew Lyman depicting light-lined silhouettes of people in dimly lit, natural landscapes.

Hauntingly cinematic promo vid by Andrew Telling

With this clip for "Blessing" by Felix, London-based filmmaker Andrew Telling makes the move from short docs to music videos, and the results are gorgeous.

Animated goodness from Belgium's Kristof Luyckx.

Here's the latest video for Belgian twosome Hermanos Inglesos, for their new single "Wanderland." The fun and fantastical animation was created by the band's compadres Kristof Luyckx and Michele Vanparys. Tight and trippy and there's a nod to nature that made it SHFTy enough for us to put up. The cat shitting pool balls is a high spot. Basically, we just like it....read more
