LA Music Video Festival: Best Narrative Video

on Wednesday, May. 8th

This week we'll be featuring the work of the winners of the Los Angeles Music Video Festival.

I will not argue with you if you want to tell me that Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the directing duo known as the DANIELS, are the best music video directors working today.

I'm not even saying that because we share a parking lot at work. I'm saying it because I believe it to be true.

Yet before we get into their victory in this year's LA Music Video Festival's Narrative Video category I want to direct your attention to one of the other finalists.

Director Dave Ma put together a haunting video for "Clair de Lune" from the Australian DJ Duo Flight Facilities. Languid and lush, Ma uses the electrotrance song as the soundtrack for a short film about friendship, loss, and the sudden decisions that reshape lives. Get in the mood and watch it.

The DANIELS' video for The Shin's "Simple Song" will get you into the mood right quick. Kinetic and chaotic, the DANIELS weave a fun story about a fractured family around The Shin's masterful track. Fair warning: the song might just get stuck in your head for days.
