Visit Bug and browse their past event pages - you can view the videos featured at each event - these are both established directors and low budget newcomers. There is some really interesting work, particularly animation - but all sorts.
Here is my top selection
Kap Bambino - simple, effective use of slowmo
Young Loves - shamanising in the woods - amazing transitions, effects
Colourmusic - ha ha!
Cinnamon Chasers - alternate endings, POV narrative - interesting technique, narrative style
Supergrass - all it takes sometimes is a simple visual idea
Post your research on the blog with an explanation of what Bug is.
