Andrew Donoho teams up with Jai Wolf once again to create this touching video centring around themes of loss and nostalgia within the imagination of a child.
Pasqual Guiterrez delicately weaves 3 emotionally charged vignettes existing in different places, all living in a time of uncertainty and mounting fear in Jack White's "Connected by Love". While these storylines never directly interact with one another, Pasqual shows each walk of life coming to grips with the unknown in different ways - poetic, tragic, intimate, full of redemption, and the ultimate acceptance of life’s greatest unknown.

Smuggler director Miles Jay presents a moving short film for JAY-Z’s latest “Smile”. Written by Miles, the video is a visually magnificent piece inspired by the emotional experiences of Gloria Carter, JAY-Z’s mother.
Set in Brooklyn in the 1970s, the video explores Gloria living in the shadows as she is forced to hide her homosexuality. We see her flourishing relationship with her female neighbour, which develops into a budding sexuality that can never be realised. Backgrounded by the social and economic pressures of the time, the two women sacrifice living their truths for the betterment of their children.
A young Shawn Carter witnesses the vulnerability in his mother for the first time and through her pain learns to smile through adversity. JAY-Z’s lyricism concludes with a poem written by Gloria in which she unveils her homosexuality for the first time, revealing the insight of her experience.
Smile is a special and personal film, rendered compassionately by Miles Jay and expertly photographed by Stuart Winecoff.
Noble Jones' latest for FARR's "Rebel Soul" captures the feelings of a bad yet beautiful trip using a mixture of motion graphics and Manga inspired visuals.

Tomás Whitmore’s latest for Rae Sremmurd is a mind bending party that plays with our perception of everything. Tomás’ use of intricate set designs and forced perspective photography add to the all round trippy setting that we find ourselves in creating a video that is perplexing to watch.

Being lost and directionless and the inherent human need to find a sense of belonging.” [Pitchfork]
