One music video for the hit single “Trojans” wasn’t good enough for Atlas Genius. The Australian band decided to hire four different directors to create four unique visions for the song, which has been featured on the likes of Grey’s Anatomy, 90210, Whitney, Deception, and your local rock radio station.
Hollywood.com has the exclusive premiere of the third video in the series, from New York City-based directing team PotsNPans. The trio develops, produces, directs, shoots, and edits docu-style content, and their take on the radio hit features The Carrie Diaries actress Alexandra Miller as a girl going about her normal life in New York City while dreaming of a day at the ocean. (Thanks to this perma-winter we’ve been suffering through this year, it’s something we can all relate to.)
Atlas Genius, a.k.a. Aussie brothers Keith and Michael Jeffrey, teamed up with Vimeo for the music video series, hiring some of the video-sharing site’s top content producers to create different treatments for their song. The brothers chose which four videos would ultimately be produced. Aside from Hollywood.com’s PotsNPans version, the other three include a claymation by Tyler Nicholson, a live-action love story from Celia Rowlson-Hall, and an upcoming hand-drawn animation from Eric Funk.
The band just wrapped a tour with Imagine Dragons and will head out on their own headlining tour this summer. Their debut album, When It Was Now, hit stores in February.
