HAVE SUM NURV (Newest Unconventional Romanian Videos) will be here from now on, once every two weeks, to keep you up to date with the best (in our opinion) unconventional clips, music-videos or short-films created by Romanian producers or artists.
Why just Romanian videos? Firstly, because we’re a Romania-based webzine and secondly, we wait to see if “it bites” and if the NURV fulfil its purpose. We came up with NURV in order to cover a larger amount of good video stuff in less time and to give you a better perspective on what is worth watching, just in case you missed something.
So here’s our first freshly-made 10-entries list of unconventional videos, which includes Romanian clips and films created and published in the last two weeks (in random order):
