There's nothing strange about the attraction of the girl in Ben Strebel's video for Animal Kingdom's Strange Attractor, but all is not what it seems...
Clock Opera 'Once And For All' by Ben Strebel
Clock Opera look like being a big band in 2012, and the stirring Once And For All gets an emotional and affecting narrative video directed by Ben Strebel - featuring cult actor Dudley Sutton (he of Lovejoy, Orlando - and The Leather Boys).
It's a parable about seizing the day, and how it's even more important when you don't have that many days left...
"This was a very personal project for me - I feel very strongly that older people go unnoticed in this country and wanted to reverse the usual music video focus on youth to show that the emotions of love and loss are universal ones," explains Ben.
"It was a delight to work with such a strong cast, the performance of Dudley Sutton in particular is an extraordinary one. When I submitted the idea of this story to Island Records it was always framed as a short film, they believed in it working in both formats and it was fantastic to have been enabled to realize the project in this unusual way."
