Ben Strebel’s “Wasted” interview on 1.4

Check out Ben Strebel’s interview with 1.4 about the inspiration and creative process behind the compelling and ominous narrative of his ‘Wasted’ music video for The Hour.
As well as the actual dangers and logistics on the ‘weird and wonderful’ shoot itself, from being being surrounded by 30 masked extras all armed with real knives, to the challenge of creating a video to echo the sounds of the tune rather than following the exact constraints of the track structure, this was an all round unusual and liberating directorial experience that Ben is immensely proud of and thoroughly enjoyed.
