"Rob The Bank", a new music video I co-directed with Dave Ramirez for Placebo's "Loud Like Love" Super Delux DVD Edition (out Sept 16, 2013).   We got the inspiration for the video after watching the strong images coming from Turkey during the #OccupyGezi protests back in June. We heard from a friend that the devastating events were not getting any global attention, and we felt inspired to place these powerful real world images in a beautiful grayscale slow-motion world. The video also touches on the subject of child-like innocence and neutrality.  We all come into the world being the same but are formed by what surrounds us.
