A video series that would make REM fans proud?

Ben Lorentzen and video director Johan Anderson have

made a series of conceptually-linked videos

that tell a continuous story of

compulsion, spirituality, and the hazards of love.

Topics that REM fans will recognize!

See the series below!

Video 1: Lay Down in the Dark

Video 2: Dead Man in the Closet

Video 3: Crows on the Wire

Video 4: Alabaster Jar

Lorentzen and Anderson have taken great care with

these clips: they were shot through vintage lenses

and presented in a wide-screen format, just like

an old movie. Nods to Bergman and film noir will

lbe apparent to buffs; others will simply

appreciate the richness of the cinematography and

the intriguing nature of the narrative.

Lorentzen grew up in Tromso, Norway  –  above

the Arctic Circle – a place where the sun

doesn’t rise for months at a time – and that

chill is present in every black-and-white frame.
