• Character Direction
Benga is a pioneering dubstep music producer & was one of the first dubstep producers when the music style was emerging in the early 2000s. He has propelled club music in many directions placing him in the upper echelons of producer/remixers.
The video for ‘Open Your Eyes’ draws on the lyrics of the song featuring a voodoo priest character ‘taking control’ of 2 dancers cast as rough sleepers. As the spell twists their souls they eventually give in and embrace his dark power – their Tribal energies take over.
Edited with cuts of violent, aggressive, angular and dark movement in forward & reverse, the video was filmed & choreographed with this in mind to design an invisible force at work upon the dancers.
