The Walkmen "On The Water"

watch
Suspenseful CGI video directed by Nir Ben Jacob.

The video for The Walkmen's "On The Water" begins innocently enough, with two cute bunnies hopping around a farmer's field. But the dark hues suggest foreboding, and the narrative takes a bleak turn before long. Some fantastic CGI work from director Nir Ben Jacob. ...read more

Raveonettes "Black/White"

watch
Puppetry, cut outs and computer animation mixed to stunning effect by director Chris Do.

With the video for the Raveonettes' 2009 song "Black/White," Chris Do, founder of Blind, takes the theme of contrast and runs with it. Opposing forces are threaded through the narrative: love/hate, life/death, young/old, daydream/nightmare, ugliness/beauty. The dark, sparse look of the video matches the Danish duo's aesthetic perfectly. ...read more

Animated goodness from Belgium's Kristof Luyckx.

The cat shitting pool balls is a high spot. Basically, we just like it....read more
