Last night I attended the Evolution of the Music Video, part of Packaged Goods, at TIFF’s Bell Lightbox. As usual, Rae Ann Fera curated a great selection of work. In case you missed it (shame on you), here’s a selection of the work that stood out for me.

Above you can see a new version of the most over-played song of 2012 – Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”. But this is a new mix, completely made up of versions of the song uploaded to YouTube by fans. Some pretty impressive fans.

Opposite end of the spectrum, is the filmic Spiritualized “Hey Jane”, posted below. You may want to keep a box of tissues handy for this one.

There’s also a poster and a direct marketing piece, a card, which was placed in the spokes of bicycles in Toronto’s downtown core.
