David Knight - 9th Sept 2014

It's been a couple of years or so since Ben Foley directed a music video - he's been devoting his time to other projects, like creating VFX for the indie feature Fantastic Fear Of Everything starring Simon Pegg. But Ben is back with the barnstorming video for Turbowolf's Solid Gold - back with a vengeance.

Turbowolf lead singer Chris plays the hapless hitchhiker who is taken for a ride to hell in the mud-encrusted demonic, suitably turbocharged van that has the band playing in the back, but no driver... 

It's loads of fun and, as Ben says, a return to the thing he loves doing first and foremost: "making silly shit happen on screen." Hard to believe that the budget was a ludicrously modest two hundred quid...
