Voyager - The Meaning Of I 2012

The third music video I directed for Australian Modern Heavy Progressive outfit  Voyager. Along with their new drummer and guitarist Voyager started building on their style and branching out into more progressive grooves. The dynamic power and intensity of Voyager have just been stepped up a notch.

Henry and Aaron - It’s A Snap! 2012

This web-ad for CIT Perth featuring Henry and Aaron went viral (3.5 million) when it splashed all over the pages of YouTube, Reddit and Gizmodo. Aaron has the power of teleportation, he simply snaps his fingers and teleports himself and Henry around the city of Perth. But teleportation isn’t as simple as it sounds.

Voyager - Seize The Day “BY THE FANS” 2012

Original Concept by Ben Berkhout & Voyager Australia, Directed, Produced and Edited by Ben Berkhout, Cinematography by “The Fans” on Smartphones.

This video began in early March 2012 as a viral campaign I led where Voyager fans were offered the opportunity to film the band’s latest release Seize The Day @ The Amplifier and upload either at the download station at the venue or via web transfer through WeTransfer and YouTube. The catch was, it could only be shot on a “Smartphone” the footage would be later cut into a music video by me. Danny (Estrin) grabbed the opportunity and opened the invitation to the rest of the world to enter their own videos. Lip-sync, some crazy interpretive dance, driving, eating, swimming, juggling, star jumping, head-banging, rocking out or simply lying on a bed wearing a wrestling mask threatening a cat with a water pistol…… Anything and everything was featured. As long as they had a good time making it!

The Atlas Mountains - The Odds (The Pine Sessions) 2011

One of those intimate shoots where everyone feeds off each other, spontaneously, moving on feel, doing what we love doing.
