Don’t get us wrong: We love that digital video is so affordable and responsive that bands can shoot and edit videos themselves and have them posted online quickly. But there’s still something romantic about film, especially when it’s used in a music video. First Mary Helena Clark’s gorgeously abstract and experiential video for Future Islands’ “As I Fall” ( reminded us that celluloid still has textures that DV can’t always approximate. And then Matthew Porterfield’s seismic collage for Dope Body’s “Enemy Outta Me” ( reminded us that there still exist some underground sounds that scream for grainy film images rather than smooth and flat DV polish.
