Film At 11: Field Trip To The Moon

The name Steve Barron might not mean anything to you, but you are certainly familiar with the director’s work. He is the man responsible for three of the 1980s’ most iconic music videos: a-ha’s “Take On Me,” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Dire Straits’ “Money For Nothing.” as well as films such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Coneheads. Now he’s back behind the camera for the latest video from Field Trip To The Moon (a.k.a. singer/songwriter and actress Angela Christofilou and guitarist Dan Cross). The clip is for “YOU,” off the duo’s self-released Something Owed. Says Christofilou of the track and video, “‘YOU’ came from a relationship I was in and from a place of anxiety and panic attacks, which is what the theme of the video is sort of based around. Running away from one’s self. The sort of fight-or-flight response. We didn’t have much of a budget for the video, really. Everyone who worked on it did so as they loved the song, and Steve Barron came on board to direct it which was great. I met Steve at an audition for an acting job, we talked about music, so I later just sent him the song and asked if he would do a video for it, and he was up for it. It was filmed in two days.” We are proud to premiere “YOU” today on Watch it now.
