Leonardo Cosme wins the Jury Award at the Shortcutz Music Video Challenge, with this gently tongue-in-cheek promo for Feng Suave. 

Inspired by cheesy holiday postcards, the band are treated to a trip around the world - from bright sunny beaches to snowy peaks, echoing the dreamy vibe of the song. 

Of course, it's all revealed to be set up in front of different backdrops, in a decidely average studio, where the cast are directed by a flamboyant photographer... But that doesn't stop them imagining the fantasy of skiing in the Swiss Alps, dancing samba on a Brazillian beach and eating raw fish in the Netherlands. 

It's a vibrant, laidback affair, with understated performances from the group, and a buzzing energy that permeates every vignette. And all of this was achieved in a tiny amount of time - the directors and musicians had just six day to shoot, edit and finish their films, as per competition rules.
