BERWYN Buries Himself Alive in Action Packed Video ‘MIA’

Directing duo Waxxwork teams up with SMUGGLER for the performance led video

BERWYN Buries Himself Alive in Action Packed Video ‘MIA’

Director-duo on the rise Waxxwork directs ‘MIA’ for BERWYN. With their recent UK MVA newcomer nomination for their previous video for Eddy Luna, there is no stopping Waxxwork as they continue their creative journey with this impressive performance-led video for BERWYN. 

The resonating performance from BERWYN interplays with an action-packed and symbolic storyline - leading BERWYN to be buried alive, by himself. Cleverly integrating VFX, Waxxwork visually plays with the idea of time as BERWYN is stuck in a - metaphorically as well as visual - limbo trying to escape both memories and reality. With ‘MIA’ Waxxwork accomplishes to evoke feelings of melancholy and nostalgia all at once.
