Martin Živocký and Veronika Jelínková made a melancholic music video set at sea. As a man floats in a small boat, he is confronted with various obstacles and his own memories. Everything is portrayed with tasteful 3D animation.
Gorgeous Sleeper Cell is a fan music video for Seattle-based abstract rap duo Shabazz Palaces. It narrates an abstract story based on the duo’s poetic, almost symbolistic lyrics. We watch some sort of a genie who got into our reality from his animated world.
The critical, angry and offensive style of Czech rap duo P/\ST is accompanied by a no less disturbing video made by two female directors. They naturally use black and white stylisation and alternate between simple, yet strong motifs. The personified anxiety from the song’s title transforms its form – it grows, spills, crawls on the walls, creeps out of woods and brooks and cannot be trapped.
This experimental music video depicts the dissonance between the way we feel inside and the way we present ourselves to the world, on social media and in general through playful work with plasticine. Authors Eliška and Lee Oz have been specialising in claymation for quite some time and achieve unusually fluid results.
