Ben Khan

Ben Khan "1000" (Yoni Lappin, dir.)

For those waiting (so far in vain) for a Twin Peaks reboot, this Red Room homage might hold you over...

Yoni Lappin, director: "Ben came to me with an idea about being at the mercy of a woman controlling him in his dreams. We both loved and connected to the Red Room scene from Twin Peaks as a visual reference for his dream world and used this as a starting point. From there, we carried on discussing ideas back and forth and adding layers. Although it may come across as random, nothing is in there for no reason; Ben actually writes his lyrics on that type writer (although we did spray paint it green for the video) and that's Ben's cat in there too. I hope people keep watching it and picking up on the little things."

Ben Khan "Youth" (BRTHR, dir.)

The rule of Chekhov's Gun says if we see a gun in the first act, we better see it get used in the third. It doesn't typically apply to music videos, for lots of reasons, but most depressingly because so much imagery in our field is nothing more than simplistic posturing. Directing team BRTHR know better, and although we never see the gun go off or the knife go stab, it's very clear that they have an awful payoff planned for this twisted love story.
