The best of Dazed video

Dazed's TV department had a blockbuster year - here are the ten films you need to see before 2014 is done

BECKY & JOE – TIME

Becky & Joe's viral smash got the year off to a fine start, as the outsider puppeteers showed us inside their world.

FOCUS CREEPS – KNIFE TAPE ROPE

The LA video directors got together with the longtime Dazed hero Dennis Cooper for a series of deeply dark short movies. The lead, Knife Tape Rope, is a teen terror.

EWEN SPENCER – OPEN MIC

Ticking a big one off our collective bucket list, this autumn, we told the definitive story of grime on Channel 4. Ewen Spencer, who directed the first ever Music Nation, took the reigns for this awesome doc.

THRONE – THARSIS SLEEPS

An award-winner of a music video! For heavy metal band Throne, we premiered their meticulous stop-motion-animation, made out of (what else?) hand-embroidered patches.

JAMIE ROBERTS – TRUTH BEAUTY BAILEY

Around the opening of Bailey's massive retrospective, we spoke to the great man for this intimate film portrait. 

BRTHR - SINKING STONE

In this original film, featuring music from Gems, the cult directors BRTHR teamed up with another pair of siblings: the infamous ATL Twins. 

DANIELS - INTERESTING BALL

How interesting can a ball be? Pretty interesting, if it's seen through the eyes of the Daniels, LA's manic music video makers.

KRISTOFFER BORGLI – WHEREVER I LOOK I SEE MYSELF

Blowjobs and Proust: this short film from the Scandinavian auteur in the making sees him recreate a movie from his memory of a summer house on the ocean.

FKA TWIGS PRESENTS WET WIPEZ

For our day special around your favourite musician of 2014, we commissioned a set of videos directed by FKA twigs herself. Alongside the majestic "Tw-Ache", twigs worked with the London krump crew Wet Wipez to produce this monument to movement. 

TOM GOULD – SKIN

The final film for the holidays is from New Zealand's Tom Gould. A director who specialises in dry takes on the characters who inhabit his homeland's hinterlands, this short shows the world through the eyes of an aging bike-gang leader.
