Pitchfork has post it a list of their favorite music videos of the 2000's.

Music videos took a few odd turns in the 2000s. At the onset of the decade, big-name late-90s directors such as Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, Jonathan Glazer, and Mark Romanek were branching out into feature films, greatly reducing their music video output. Two other pioneering directors, Chris Cunningham and St├ęphane Sednaoui, also cut way back on the number of promo clips they directed.

At the same time, MTV de-emphasized music videos. An easy stand-in for the missteps of the industry, with hindsight MTV in America throughout the 1980s and 90s often served a positive role as a central delivery system for non-commercial radio music-- hip-hop, metal, alt-rock, and dance all gained a foothold in America via MTV's genre-specific shows, and as late as this decade bands like the White Stripes, Modest Mouse, Franz Ferdinand, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Strokes were showcased on the channel.

Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.

The Mill's multi award winning directing collective, Bif, has won the prestigious Jury Award at the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival for their short film, 'Dix'. For ten years, SIGGRAPH has been an official qualifying festival for the Academy Award for "Best Animated Short Film". Dix is a darkly comic short film showing the complexities of psychological and obsessive behaviour and is a mixture of live action and CG. Dix has already scooped a raft of awards, among the most recent, the Shoot Young Directors Award and a win at the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival.Sputnik 7
