What do you get when you cross Black Mirror with Matrix-esque brain mapping? The new Bring Me The Horizon vid, obvs.
Taken from their most recent record ‘amo’, the creepy new visuals starring Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker were directed by frontman Oli Sykes, and co-directed and produced by videographer Brian Cox.
“’in the dark’ is my first ‘official’ directing effort,” Oli says. “We were in the midst of planning to shoot the video with a director in LA, 3 days before the shoot I got a call from Forest saying he was in London and available, so ignoring everyone who said it was impossible to make it happen in time, I called our videographer Brian and asked him if he wanted to help me direct a video. 2 days later we were shooting in London! It was a crazy, emotional few days and I was very lucky to bag an insanely talented crew to assist me.”
