Jack Pott! "Sure is Quiet Since The Goldfish Died" Directed by: Jack Pott!
Once upon a time (spring of 1958) in a place far away (Buffalo, NY), the following story actually took place. Jack Pott's little brother (Ken) and he were anxiously awaiting the arrival of their new baby sister (Kathy) when Mom and Dad decided the family would soon need more room. However, instead of finding a new, larger place, "Bob the Builder" planned on adding a basement to our existing house. The house we lived in was a pretty big, 2-story, 4-bedroom building, with a porch and patio. Just as soon as the permafrost released its firm grip on everything, dad sprung into action. Soon we were packing our pillows and provisions to stay with neighbors across the street. A few days later and before the house was moved, Mom and I went back to gather a few things we had forgotten - some dishes, towels, etc. That's when we spotted "Artie" the goldfish, nearly frozen in his bowl. In a panic, we tried our best to revive him, but to no avail. Neither warm hands, nor mouth-to-mouth seemed to help. We realized there was nothing we could do but return to our temporary home. And it was very quiet that night. Later, when the basement was finished and the house was moved back, we had a full-sized basement. Soon we had a small funeral for our loyal pet, and then, abruptly, flushed him down the toilet. And that's the last we mentioned Artie, but we all learned a valuable lesson - Don't ever forget; and someday make a video!

Sophie Dawson "Flower Men" Directed by Nicolaus Bouf
By taking the example of the Mentawaï tribe, this video and music is about the loss of human values due to our consumerist society. 

The Gunhands "Mama Loves Jesus" Directed by: Erik McCowan 
This was a very no-budget music video but we made great things happen to get the product! The band was very gracious and everyone had a great time. No hired actors, everyone included was a friend. Totally inspired from the lyrics the director dreamed up one night.

Sounds del Mar "Lay Low" Directed by: John Donofrio
The video is an amalgam of live action, computer generated and stop-motion animation. Early South Park inspired the construction paper animation. Conceptually, the video borrows from big booty exploitation rap videos, but instead of having curvaceous women dancing, we have arrhythmic white men.   

Total Unicorn "Mini Knee" Directed By Stephen Fishman
It's a video of a performance of a video performance. Full of dirt and night and robes. 
Mini Knee reduces inflammation of the ka-neee.
