We Got Time by Moray McLaren, director: David Wilson

Here is a rather overdue round-up of some of the best videos that have passed under CR’s nose of late. First up is David Wilson‘s rather fine promo for We Got Time by Moray McLaren. And if you’re wondering how it’s made, you can find out all about it here.


No One Does It Like You by Department of Angels, directors: Patrick Daughters & Marcel Dzama

Warrior’s Dance by The Prodigy, director: Corin Hardy

Corin Hardy has created this animated video for The Prodigy, which features puppets created from cigarette packets. “I’ve always loved the Grimm fairy tales and there is a little of Elves and Shoemakers in this idea for me,” says Hardy.


Luftbahn by Deichkind, director: AlexandLiane

AlexandLiane has created this hilarious vid for Luftbahn by Deichkind. At least we’re assuming it’s all a joke, anyway…


Black Hearted Love by PJ Harvey & John Parish, directors: Jake & Dinos Chapman

Artists Jake & Dinos Chapman directed this video for PJ Harvey & John Parish. According to a predictably provocative article by Jake Chapman about the video that ran in the Guardian last month, the duo would like people “to watch our videos, go out into the street and burn their Porsches”. CR doesn’t own any Porsches but we’re still not sure that this film would initiate such action. We’ll let you make up your own mind though – let us know if any cars get torched.


Teddy Bear by Midfield General (feat. Ralph Brown), director: Kidda

This video is the latest collaboration between Midfield General and animator Kidda.


The Reeling by Passion Pit, directed by Hydra

Directing collective Hydra (Sam Stephens, Ariel Danzinger and John Hobbs) has made this video for Passion Pit. Inspired by the worn away layers of advertising and flyers on New York’s streets, the film was quite an undertaking. According to the production company, Humble, “the video, shot on the new handheld Canon EOS 5D II DSLR, was edited, tracked and composited in normal post workflow. Then, every other frame, some 4305 of them, was printed out, crumpled up, spray mounted in stacks, and then reshot on homemade animation stands. A month of long nights, razor cuts, toxic fumes, and a terrabyte of stills later, we came out with this.”
