4. Radkey, "Glore"
Director: Nicos Livesey
Since 2013, director Nicos Livesey has made one intensive animated music video per year, and this time he revisits classic stop-motion Claymation for hard-rock trio Radkey. The most obvious antecedent is Green Jelly's "Three Little Pigs" from 1993, but "Glore" pushes the form farther with frantic pacing, kooky humor and blacklight visions. Along the way it buzzsaws through a greatest hits collection of Eighties and Nineties pop culture touchstones. But even with its lowbrow subject matter, "Glore" takes a complex approach to technical work.
