Emily Bell "Back to Way I Was" Directed by: Curtis Pollock 
This was a particularly fun music video to make. Emily wanted to share her playful side and we decided to showcase that by having her and the band goof around in masks at the almost instantly legendary White Horse in Austin, riding a variety of wheeled transportation devices, notably featuring Emily's skills on roller skates. Her final spill at the end of the video was the only "bummer" of the shoot, but despite the bumps and bruises, it was fun to fool around like kids again.

Captive "The Fool" Directed by: Geo Robinson 
Inspired by public access music videos from the 1980s and early '90s, Austin post-punk band Captive debuts their first single. Shot entirely on Hi8 and VHS video, integrating original, vintage video art by longtime Austin Cable Access personality Kirkomatic.

Driver Friendly "Messidonia" Directed by: Jeremy Mattern 
Inspired by a band member's dusty VHS collection this music video is a tribute to one of the best actors of all time, Mr. Thomas Jeffrey Hanks. Only true die hard Tom Hanks fans can name all nine movies the music video references. 

Christian Bland & The Revelators "Daughters of the Sun" Directed by: James Oswald 
Effects: Robert Mustachio
Editing: Federico Moreno
Camera: Aaron Shapiro & Michael Hurley

This is a homage to one of my greatest video influences and inspirations: The mighty "Beat Club" television show produced in Germany during the late 60's and early 70's. Many episodes are posted online and should be seen as soon as you're done watching this one...

Three Bones "Hold on to Ya" Directed by: Gene Bigio
Austin-based quartet [Three Bones]' dreamy watercolor shoegaze and lo-fi pop is charged with a lot of soul, thanks in large part to the vocals Victoria de Benedicty. Take a moment to soak in their groovy single "Hold On To Ya" - KUTX Music Video for Three Bones' debut single, "Hold On To Ya" from their debut LP "Haven't You Heard."
Directed by Three Bones and Gene Bigio at 7 Point Vision.
Cinematography and editing by Gene Bigio.

Megafauna "Time to Go" Directed by: Bradley Montesi 
A new energy drink called Megafauna is sweeping the country with its distinctive notes of euphoria and transcendentalism....or so the early 90s commercials would like you to think.

Balmorhea "Jubi" Directed by: Cory Llewellyn
The Super 8 Film for the song "Jubi" by the band Balmorhea is a narrative without words. It's about a boy who gets his video games taken away and decides to goes on a small adventure around his farm house just outside of Austin. The film is shot on Super 8 film as well as the Lomokino 35 mm Film camera made by Lomography. We went to several locations and even used a small drone to get the aerial shots you see. The film features not only the band but also a really special young lad named Truman Conway who goes on the adventure and eventually runs into the band.

Graham Reynolds "Ada" (World Premiere) Directed by: Erin Meyer 
Created four years ago yet never released, Graham Reynolds’ “The Difference Engine” sparks the fever dream of Ada Lovelace, Enchantress of Numbers. A vision of poetical science told in light and shadow with four hands, found objects, and an overhead projector.
