Max Weiland's competition-winning clip for Elton John is a gorgeous love letter to LA.

A woman drives to scatter some ashes, whilst another drives for the joy of being in the city at night. A parking attendant takes an expensive car for a spin and a group of young girls live it up in a limo on the strip. Also, Marilyn Manson(!) shows up in surprising, out-of-persona cameo.

Fresh from premiering at Cannes, Weiland's clip for Tiny Dancer is a story about a city that's always on the move - told through a dozen people moving through it. Lovingly shot on film by Evan Prosofsky, the video is a multi-faceted love story about a place famous for telling stories.

Max Weiland:

"LA is a driving town. Its identity is in its highways, its boulevards, its cars and its people. This video is a bitter sweet love letter to the city.”
