Benjamin Wesley's Animation Comes to Life In "Crazy" New Video
Mark C. Austin
Late last night we got our first peek at a new clip from local singer-songwriter Benjamin Wesley for his single "People Will Never Stop Being Crazy." The video comes almost a year after his Geschichte release, and is in fact the first music video he has made to promote the EP. Last summer he was doing some shooting with a few videographers in downtown parking garages for a clip but nothing seemed to come of it. The video centers around Wesley and a cast of beautiful grotesque characters in various rooms and spaces while his own animations and writing seem to come alive around them with Preachers, children, revolutionaries and faded beauties abound. The concept gives the proceedings an almost schizoid quality a la the 2001 film A Beautiful Mind.
