    4,007 views 2 years ago
    Broken Cities, the vibrant post-rock band from Oakland, CA, has yet again joined forces with the production team from Craft Beer: A Hopumentary (

    After a successful collaboration with Hopumentary in May 2013, the production team reunited to create the music video for “Beyond the Lightning, Void.”

    The video follows Winston, a happily married chemist, determined to reach new bounds of discovery in his field. But when an experiment turns explosively wrong, Winston awakes in a hospital room with little knowledge of the events leading there. With mysterious security guards outside his door, he soon realizes his wife, and his own life, could be at risk. Focusing his energy on evading capture, he comes to discover he now possesses a new kind of power—much greater than anything he bargained for.

    “Beyond the Lightning, Void” was shot across the Bay Area over the course of three days in various locations, wrapping production along the stunning rural landscape of Reinstein Ranch in Livermore. Bay Area natives themselves, the production team is comprised of long-time friends Jeremy Williams, Matt Schleicher, Andrew Kent, and Steve Kaye.
