Bring Me The Horizon has just shared their trippy new video for the song ‘In The Dark’. Directed and edited by frontman Oliver Sykes, the visual stars Oscar-, Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actor Forest Whitaker, in an ide to sci-fi films like The Matrix. Whitaker, known for such films as Bird, Black Panther, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Platoon, The Last King Of Scotland, Good Morning Vietnam and more is currently starring in the new series Godfather of Harlem. The clip was co-directed and produced by videographer Brian Cox, and you can watch it below.
Oli comments, “‘In The Dark’ is my first ‘official’ directing effort. We were in the midst of planning to shoot the video with a director in L.A. Three 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. Two 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.”
