Hurts 'The Road' by NezHurts 'The Road' by Nez2The campaign for the second Hurts album Exile starts with this impressively cinematic two minute mini-promo for The Road directed by Nez - who has now joined Riff Raff Films for music videos and commercials. Conceptually, the video takes the viewer on a journey of the life of Hurts duo Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson - the camera continuously backing up through various tableaux that represent stages of their development, including scenes of violence and kinky sex... It's Nez's first project since moving to Riff Raff in London a couple of months ago, having previously been represented by Colonel Blimp and Blink. His acclaimed work in music videos includes promos for Kid Cudi, Bruno Mars, Kano, Birdy, The Dø and many more, while he has also made commercials for the likes of Perrier and Fruit Of The Loom, plus fashion promos for the likes of Halston NY.
