Director Ben Phillippo Teams Up with Dream Pop Band Gem Club to Create Tragic Poetry

Watch the official music video for "Speech of Foxes" now.

Airy and placid, Gem Club’s “Speech of Foxes” is an example of how a simple song can be the perfect canvas for interpretation, and how the marriage of audio and visual can create the necessary ballast to a piece of work. “The track really resonated with me on a personal level,” Director Ben Phillippo explains. “I wanted to create visuals that explored loss in a symbolic way, depicting something poetic as well as tragic. I imagined a wooden man, and how vulnerable and fragile he might be if exposed to fire, and the concept grew from there.”

The wooden man evolved into weathered flesh and blood, as the main character (played by Jack Goldman) demonstrates how connected we are to memories and experiences in the official music video for “Speed of Foxes” off Gem Club’s 2014 ‘In Roses’ (Hardly Art). Both solemn and satisfying, we travel the journey of a man's life has he reflects on the past. “It snowed unexpectedly on the day, and we rolled with it-- I'm glad we did, because it took the drama up a notch,” Phillippo added.

Local artists interested in working with Ben and his team can find contact details at
