The TikiKiti Awards: February

And the hits keep coming.

In a valiant attempt to sort through a massive stack of entries in record time, we’re now ready to recognize the Top 5 Videos from February of this year.

Perhaps at some point in this timeline, we’ll be all caught-up, but sadly we have not yet been replaced self-charging, super-intelligent robots. It’s in next year’s budget, and we remain confident that human error will soon be a thing of the past.

As always, five artists are honored, and the monthly high scorer may choose an enviable trophy or gift card as signifiers of their superior work.  More about the awards. 

Cue the fanfare, here are the Top 5 Videos of the month (February), in order from first to fifth.

1. Producer: amzproductions2010
Artist: X
Song: The Have Nots
Category: Narrative

A deft and multilayered approach to the narrative genre, the team at amzproductions2010 delivers a stylishly fascinating depiction of a compartmentalized human psyche. Bonus points for good taste in classic L.A. punk.

2. Producer: Erin McAuley and Charlie Jennings
Artist: Dua Lipa
Song: New Rules
Category: Performance

Producers McAuley and Jennings maintain visual symmetry with a brisk editing pace and an impressive array of carefully crafted images.

3. Producer: TinyComet Films
Artist: Alan Walker
Song: The Spectre
Category: Performance

It’s a terrific dance performance, but the folks at TinyComet Films effortlessly fashion a cinematically rich post-apocalyptic canvas for the choreography.

4. Producer: Finlay McDonald
Artist: Mura Masa
Song: Love$ick
Category: Narrative

Risking possible damnation by inspiring teenage actors to drink “booze” and monkey around in church, Finlay McDonald is clearly a fearless filmmaker.

5. Producer: ChewValley Media
Artist: Lorde
Song: Team
Category: Narrative

Cops and robbers, chase scene, and a “crime doesn’t pay” finale. The ChewValley Media crew displays ample camera chops and editing precision in this dancing delinquent drama.
