whenyoung 'Future' by Michael Baldwin
A boy struggles with his demons in Michael Baldwin's affecting video for whenyoung.
It features an excellent performance by young Badger Skelton in the central role of the tormented boy, captured in bold, high contrast black and white cineatography by Aaron Rogers.
Throughout, the band play the observers to the boy's world - unseen, until something happens to make them visible...
"The band had told me that the song was about a friend of theirs who had sadly taken his own life way too young and they wanted an abstract narrative that could act as a metaphor for a boy trying to escape his troubled life. So armed with a great crew and a brilliant lead actor called Badger, we managed to make something that I feel is quietly poignant."
