2Pause: “Douze Points” for Andy Bruntel We added, not one, or two, but twelve of Andy Bruntel’s magical promos to our music video collection 2Pause. That’s a dozen, dear! Why Bruntel? Because the man has mastered the art of telling suspenseful, absurd and sometimes cruel, but always emotionally-super-effective stories within the confines of the 3 to 5-minute time span of a music video. In 2010, Bruntel won the Vimeo Award for Best Music Video with his eerily brilliant promo for Scissor by Liars. It’s with this kind of careful-what-you-hit-since-it-might-end-up-hitting-you-back narrative – to some extend also present in People As Places As People and in the animated hedgehog love-story It’s a Hit – that Bruntel brought the music video back into the realm of “electric cinema.” Here’s the complete 2Pause Bruntel playlist We included a couple of Bruntel’s amazing band performance-based videos… No Age – Eraser – Smoke and multi-colored balloons The Mountain Goats – This Year – Head trauma in a confined space Cold War Kids – Something is Not Right With Me – Choreographed Flying Paper Stephen Malkmus – Baby C’Mon – Stop-motion insanity, baby! And Watch Andy Bruntel tap into the spectacular and the ambiguously mystical in… No Age – Keechie Bodies of Water – Under The Pines Bat for Lashes – Prescilla

    2Pause: “Douze Points” for Andy Bruntel

    We added, not one, or two, but twelve of Andy Bruntel’s magical promos to our music video collection 2Pause. That’s a dozen, dear! Why Bruntel? Because the man has mastered the art of telling suspenseful, absurd and sometimes cruel, but always emotionally-super-effective stories within the confines of the 3 to 5-minute time span of a music video.

    In 2010, Bruntel won the Vimeo Award for Best Music Video with his eerily brilliant promo for Scissor by Liars. It’s with this kind of careful-what-you-hit-since-it-might-end-up-hitting-you-back narrative – to some extend also present in People As Places As People and in the animated hedgehog love-story It’s a Hit – that Bruntel brought the music video back into the realm of “electric cinema.”

    Here’s the complete 2Pause Bruntel playlist

    We included a couple of Bruntel’s amazing band performance-based videos…

    No Age – Eraser – Smoke and multi-colored balloons
    The Mountain Goats – This Year – Head trauma in a confined space
    Cold War Kids – Something is Not Right With Me – Choreographed Flying Paper
    Stephen Malkmus – Baby C’Mon – Stop-motion insanity, baby!

    And Watch Andy Bruntel tap into the spectacular and the ambiguously mystical in…

    2Pause | Freezing Music Video Culture

    The world of music videos has traditionally provided a perfect breeding ground to test new visual styles, VFX and editing techniques. It has also proven to be an extraordinary springboard for some of todays most acclaimed film directors, such as Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Michel Gondry, to name but three. 2Pause is the second installment of our curated music video website. The old Pause website is still online here.
