Focusing on high contrast and limited camera movement, Lance Drake’s music video for “Clockwork” by Illangelo features a lot of elements that you don’t expect to find in a cool music video these days. Despite that, it’s easily one of the coolest videos of the year, landing a spot on our best music videos of June list and inspiring us to invite Lance onto last week’s episode of the Music Video Land podcast. Lance doesn’t take any frame for granted in the black-and-white, effects-heavy art piece, and fills the video with the type of visuals that would translate easily into a movie poster, which was a goal that Lance had going into the project. The video also features some fantastic stunt work choreographed by Mindy Kelly which makes use of the wide-open location, adding to the overall stark feeling of the video.

”Clockwork” was produced by John Edwards Curtis for Doomsday Entertainment and can be downloaded as a single now.
