Hailey Tuck "Sunday Morning" Directed by Jethro Massey 
An American in Paris… Texan jazz singer Hailey Tuck in a 1920s style music video for her cover of Maroon 5’s song “Sunday Morning”

The shoot for the film was pretty much completely improvised - Hailey was in Paris to shoot another video with Jethro, they finished that one ahead of schedule, so with a couple of days to spare, they called up a few friends and ran around the city to put the film together with no more than a camera, an assistant, a few super outfits and one incredible automobile lent by their retrophile buddies... The shoot might have been easy, but the post-production to get a real 1920s vintage film look was quite something else...

Nathan Felix "Broken Down the Walls" Directed by Blake Weaver and Nathan Felix 

The largest form of instrumentation--the orchestra. Meets the smallest form of videography---macro. Broken Down the Walls is the third movement from Nathan Felix's first symphony, The Curse The Cross & The Lion and it was co-created by director Blake Weaver and composer Nathan Felix to depict the brooding, avant-garde feeling.

The idea was to contrast the images with the music. The orchestra being the largest single force of instrumentation and the video being the smallest form of macro imagery. Blake really honed in on the artistic elements of the music. "It was really magical because we didn’t talk about it too much. We had a connection creatively speaking and I let him run with it and he captured the imagery that I had often drawn or imagined in the past before I began writing. He was a true creative wonder in the making of this video. His relentless work ethic helped bring it to life." 

Max Frost "Paranoia" Directed by: Jordan Haro



Night Drive "Drones" Directed by: Lobo Sucio

What once was a narrative music video shot with actual drones is now a an animation using some of the originally shot footage. Graphical interpretations of Night Drive's performance were created using a computer, 2 VCRs, an oscilloscope, and a flux capacitor.
Agents from the future are sending us present-time dwellers a message. Listen. 

Empire Machines "The Plan" Directed by: Daniel Vestal

The video, directed by Daniel Vestal, follows a unique girl who wakes up and ventures into the woods to dig up strange body parts, and through some form of mysticism conjures up a date to take on the town. However, things might not go as she planned...and something tells us she might have tried this before.
It was shot in one day at locations in northwest and downtown Austin. The video also features sculptures by Rare Bird Art.

Mobley "Swoon" Directed by Anthony Watkins

The "Swoon" video is part of a series of music videos by using romantic relationships as a framework Mobley exploring themes of blackness and racialized violence in America.
The main effect in the video was achieved by hanging the singer by his ankles with his head in an aquarium and nearly drowning him.
