Directorial team SÅNDL (that's Ludovic Zuili & Simon Bouisson) take the viewer into an alternate reality with their music video for 99 Souls' The Girl is Mine. Their main character is the odd man out in a literally backwards society. In his search for acceptance, he learns to accept himself in the process - but then he meets a girl who suffers from the same 'ailment' as he does.
Kristian Young has provided a strong showcase for ex-Saturdays member Vanessa White, finding a balance between a pop video aesthetic and a more natural look for the video for Don't Wanna Be Your Lover.

Meilyr Jones, former frontman of Race Horses, is releasing his first solo album shortly, and How To Recognise A Work Of Art is a characterically kooky but charming offering from that record - and now has a music video to match, a one-shot wonder directed by National Theatre director Wils Wilson, and shot by Ryan Owen Eddleston.
Director Kosai Sekine has helmed this pristinely surreal video for electronic duo Young Juvenile Youth's track Animation, which sees the lead singer Yuki's head become deconstructed, sliced, shuffled and put back together again in a flurry of spellbinding effects.
Alon Isocianu has delivered this beautified vision of Kelly Clarkson performing Piece By Piece, including soft, black and white portraiture of pregnant women and visions of little girls looking up at a starry sky - with the elegant compositing work executed by Alon himself.
Here's a remarkable achievement by Darcy Prendergast and Xin Li at Melbourne-based Oh Yeah Wow. The video for The Jezabels' Come Alive is the animated story of a woman being chased by a horde of torch-bearing men, and facing a terrible fate - created in oil paint on glass, and animated frame by frame.
Vienna-based animation and design studio LWZ have created some stellar visuals to the pulsating beat of Ogris Debris's See The World.
