Metz 'Blind Youth Industrial Park' by Dylan Pharazyn
A woman drags an injured companion through an alien landscape in Dylan Pharazyn's video for Metz.
In Blind Youth Industrial Park, the pair are tracked by a squad of armed soldiers in pursuit, using an anachronistic device that displays the characters in a chromatic, almost heat-vision style map.
Wonderfully bold and cinematic, the video is a short film in itself, building to an action-packed climax and intriguing twist.
DoP Adam Luxton builds upon the tension and unease of the concept through the repeated use of static wide shots, showing there is no way out and the journey is boundless (and most probably futile).
Art directors Nic Macallan and Svet Mateev also do a phenomenal job at making the unusual feel real, with custom props and carefully considered outfits which elevate the alien concept.
