Fleur & Manu. The Fantastic French directors who never ever disappoint – just take a look at this film for Skrillex, Doompy Poomp.
Somesuch director Aoife McArdle returns home to Belfast shoot a gutsy gripping film for U2 – set during the Troubles of the 80s – that also tenderly captures those early days of love.
Goodoil director Hamish Rothwell’s insanely good stunt-filled spot, Captain Risky, takes car insurance ads to the next level.
The Sweetshop’s Steve Ayson, known for his funny ads like Momsong for Old Spice and Carlton’s Beer Chase, has come up with this glorious poetic spot out of New Zealand.
The world loved Soixan7e Quin5e director Matthijs van Heijningen’s earlier work The Bear for Canal+, which scooped up 2012’s top international awards. Now the master of comic timing and BETC have launched a sequel, there’s nothing we love more than a good joke.
Reminiscent of the late Naga Noda’s wonderful line-up for Coca Cola several years ago, Dentsu, Tokyo have created this fabulously good fun spot for Flagstone Pots and Pans called 100 Sizzling Japanese maids in Action.

We love a slow reveal… and this 700 fps “Caravaggio painting meets Bill Viola” installation for Gareth Pugh by Legs directors Geremy & Georgie is sheer poetry.
Tomek Ducki digitally animated this music video, both 2d and 3d, and then overpainted it on paper frame by frame. “I refer to it sometimes as manual rendering,” he says, “Rotoscoping over animation if you like. I like this because we have a good balance of controlled movement and accidental results with the painting.”
I won’t let you down is a new kind music video filmed by a camera on a drone. Director Morihiro Harano explains that the film was done in one continuous shoot taking approximately 50 to 60 tries to get it right. More info here
