    6. Jon Hopkins ft. Purity Ring - "Breathe This Air"

    Director: Anthony Dickenson

    In four short minutes, this video tells two people's stories, which start off seemingly seperate, but become ever more intertwined. There are beautiful, high-definition, slow-motion nature shots, a building suspense, and a sudden, surprising ending.

    Of the video, director Anthony Dickenson explained:

    I was interested in those times when you think you're totally alone in your thoughts and something unexpectedly disrupts that, snapping you out. The characters in the film have very different stories but I wanted to create distinct parallels, bringing them closer and closer until they actually intersect in a single defining moment.

    Visually stunning and with an engaging narrative, this video enchants and draws you in with both beauty and emotion.—Constant Gardner
