Dustin Morrow, curator of the second annual Portland Music Video Festival, picks three local clips that capture Portland’s anti-MTV video aesthetic.
Eluvium, “The Motion Makes Me Last” (directed by Matt McCormick)
“A seemingly effortlessly beautiful and almost transcendental meditation on the look and feel of our fair city.”
Onuinu, “Happy Home” (directed by Andrew Sloan)
“A perfect visual representation of the artist’s desire to break down lines between genres.” (Specifically hip-hop, dance, and electronica.)
And And And, “I Want More Alcohol” (directed by Kyle Glenn)
“This looks like it cost five dollars to make, but was also lavished with love. A video doesn’t need flashy production to be compelling.”
The Portland Music Video Festival takes place May 30 at the Hollywood Theatre
