Posted August 26, 2014 at 10:41am

Guess who’s back? Back again? Music videos!

That’s who! It seems like the 2000’s brought the death of videos on what was previously the main place to see them: MTV. Lately though they have been back with a vengeance thanks to YouTube’s Vevo as well as other Internet formats designed for music videos. If there is any way to prove something is worthy in the entertainment biz- it is with an award show. So on the heels of last nights 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Famous Frames would like to highlight the videos that storyboard artists Rudi Liden, Doug Brode and Michael Lee worked on.

Storyboard artist Michael Lee worked on the Best Female Video By Katy Perry and Juicy J, "Dark Horse."

Another Video that is earning attention and even won The “Cutest Audience Cutaway” Award Is this video with Art from Rudi Liden. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora performed “Black Widow” at the event.

The “Cutest Cutaway” Refers to the camera cut to Charli XCX singing along to every word.

Famous Frames artist Doug Brode worked on what may prove to be the biggest break through of this new video hay day. Daphne Guinness’ sci-fi romp seems to be equal parts Flash Gordon and Flesh Gordon by way of Ziggy Stardust, Greta Garbo, and Nico. Directed by David LaChapelle and featuring costumes from Iris van Herpen, Noritaka Tatehana, and Guinness’s own personal collection.
