For your pure music-video-watching-enjoyment, Video Static have kindly listed the best directorial work for the month of September in one handy list!
Our very own Ryan Hope, Chino Moya and Jonas Åkerlund made the cut, naturally. Of course it’s Ryan’s Disclosure and Lorde collaboration that earned him a spot in the coveted Best Of list. “Magnets” has been blowing up the internet since its release last week, earning praise from all corners of the world wide web.
Chino’s work for Years & Years earned him the feature. We recently spoke to the director about working with the band’s hypnotic leading man and got his take on the video’s impressive visual treatment. You can read about that here.
Jonas Åkerlund’s “RM486” for Rose McGowan was also crowned one of the month’s best. Nowness profiled the inimitable actor’s first musical performance, and Jonas’ “signature gothic vision,” you can read their interview and watch the NSFW clip here.
