1. Love Story, 2010 [00:04:30]
One can see the profile of a man and a woman, gazing at each other under fireworks.The scene is in slow motion, with romantic atmosphere and music that evokes a sense of love. The video uses film language cliches to describe a love story via fireworks. After a while the idyllic images fade away and the scene opens again, with the same actors and fireworks. It?s the identical scene but now in reverse. The fireworks implode,?falling? faster and faster on the couples heads. The rhythm and the music speed up, evoking a "fight" between the couple.

3. The Crisis, [00:12:00]
The video is about the possibility and impossibility of decision-making. In times of crises, one believes more in faith, in superstitious signs. He loves me, he loves me not. I will get a job, I won't get the job... One turns to the coffee cup to read their future or flower petals to make a decision. The soundtrack ? music , made by Annika Grill, voice by Renata Poljak alternates voices, sounds, song and flutes, creating a catchy hypnotic melody.
