The music video for Woodkid track “Run Boy Run” was nominated for Best Short Form Music Video at the 2013 Grammy Awards. It shows a young boy running, surrounded by various beasts that pick him up when he falls, hand him a sword and a shield, and put a horned helmet on his head. The video was directed by Lemoine himself. Also, the video is in a interesting black and white style, which some say is done to make the video have more of a golden-age type-feeling.
