Alexa Haywood of FreeAgent UK has recently signed a group of new directors - Grant Singer, Christopher Sims, Rankin and Vicky Lawton - for UK music video representation.

Grant Singer's reputation has skyrocketed in the past 12 months or so, and developed his originally directing style from lo-fi videos for Sky Ferreira, Ariel Pink and others, to his recent mini-blockbusters for The Weeknd's I Cant Feel My Face, and the odd and slightly unsettling Yogi & Skrillex's  Burial (above), featuring a clan of rubber-masked pop-n-locking contortionists. 

Christopher Sims has delivered some slick, masterfully-executed videos such as Usher's Good Kisser and the gorgeously shot video for 2013 hit single Say Something for A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, and previously directed videos for Keane, Ne-Yo and Lucacris. 

Rankin needs little introduction, having made his name as one of the UK's top fashion and portrait photographers, and also making commercials and music videos for nearly two decades - including videos for Azealia Banks, Miley Cyrus, and Future's Real and True which oozes cutting-edge, sci-fi splendor.

And Vicky Lawton, creative director of Hunger Magazine is also establishing her own style with music videos, including the videos for George The Poet's Wotless and Charlotte OC's On And On
