UK video contributor Spotmatik are what you could classify as having more of a traditional ‘stock’ aesthetic, yet their videos have attributes which sets them aside.  For example models they’re using, the interaction of the models with one another and the modification of stereotypical scenarios. For example taking a typical business scene outside of the office, situated in a restaurant, drinking wine rather than water. Something that is a daily occurrence for many corporate companies yet not portrayed in reenactments.
