NPR Lists Their 12 Favorite Music Videos of 2013

January 3rd, 2014

NPR says it best about the changing music video landscape, and it’s no surprise that four of the projects that made their list of the Top 12 of 2013 were by companies and directors we work with: Believe Media director Wendy Morgan for Laura Mvula’s “That’s Alright,” Jake Nava for Beyonce’s “Flawless,” and the Black Dog Films-produced David Bowie video “The Stars (Are out Tonight)” by Floria Sigismondi, as well as Pharrell’s 24-hour video phenomenon “Happy,” edited by Nightshift‘s Walter Mariot.

“2013 felt like the year in which the music video completed its shift from a four-minute commercial into a fully-immersive art experience. Videos have been more than just marketing tools for record labels to boost their album sales for a long time, but artists this year joyously pushed the idea of what makes a successful music video while bringing the medium into the Internet age.”
