Exactly one year ago at the Cannes Film Festival, we saw a 29 minute video of a young director named Carleton Ranney. We immediately liked his aesthetic, and his talent and potential was so obvious that we made a point to track him down. One year later, he has already directed two of our most recent videoclips — Made For You and RGB [watch below] — from our new release, Explode. Finally available on Vimeo, here it is the first short cut by Carleton Ranney, called Slasher.
