Explode - Against the Artificial (TeAnna Mirfield, Metropolitan
Music videos are a wonderfully challenging format, especially when you decide to go
for a storytelling format rather than performance alone. When Ian Waters (drummer
for Against the Artificial) asked me to collaborate with him on the video for Explode, I
eagerly accepted. As I listened to the song for the first time, the concept took shape:
three average joes experiencing the last straw in their stressful and redundant work
lives, then exploding into something more passionate and fulfilling.
My thanks go out to Ian, Chad, and Pat for letting me tell this story with their music,
and to all our friends who acted as crew and extras in the production process.
