Ben and Alex Brewer put their stamp on every part of production. They’ve earned their reputation as promo specialists by complementing music with fleshed-out characters and visual trickery. For instance, their promo for Passion Pit’s ‘Carried Away’ spelled out a couple’s stormy relationship with wry use of subtitles.

And if you were wondering how they deal with talent, they directed Nicolas Cage in their first feature film - 'The Trust' - so they know something about celebrity wrangling as well. In Ben’s words, they’re just “two normal young guys”. Talented ones, mind.

"Unacceptable Acceptance Letters"
In this film designed to remind those heading to university that they need to be on their guard if they want to avoid being sexually assaulted, students report the prospect of being raped as simply part of the equation. While it works as a warning, it has the air of something that places all the responsibility for avoiding sexual assault in the hands of its victims when the people who really need to be reached are surely the perpetrators of these crimes.
