Directions: The Plans Video Album

Directions: The Plans Video Album is a video album from Death Cab for Cutie, corresponding to their major-label debut album Plans. It was released on April 11, 2006 on Atlantic Records/Warner Music Group.[1] Conceptualized by executive producers Aaron Stewart-Ahn and the band's bass player Nick Harmer[2] proposals from around the world were submitted to Death Cab for Cutie, and a budget was allowed for 12 finalists to create videos that would translate their visions of every song from Plans. Directions also includes an interview with the band, directors' statements, treatments and profiles, animatics, and artwork, along with two bonus videos, "Jealousy Rides with Me" and "Talking Like Turnstiles".

At the 2007 Grammy Awards, the videos were nominated for Best Long Form Music Video, but they lost to Bruce Springsteen.
