Big Ideas

The American Dream

BIG IDEAS is a new band made up of Nathan Nicholson & Adam Harrison of The Boxer Rebellion, and director Ben Lankester.

Released the week of the US election, 'The American Dream' is the first of a planned trilogy of music videos for the three-piece.

The video was shot over two days in mid-October, with areas of London standing in for a dystopian America.

“What I relished about the challenge of creating the video for ’The American Dream’ was the dichotomy between the seemingly breezy surface of the song and the very contemporary dystopian themes running almost hidden underneath”

Ben Lankester Director

The video was featured on NME, Beyond the Short, Director's Library, David Reviews and Promonews.
