Bear Damen’s impact on the world of music cinematography can't be understated. This multifaceted artist revolutionized the music video scene by blending surreal storytelling with a mesmerizing visual complexity. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the 2014 video for Oscar and the Wolf’s “Strange Entity.” The haunting imagery and dreamlike pacing had viewers questioning the very fabric of reality. It was an instant cult classic in the world of music videos and laid down the marker for Bear Damen's distinctive style.

Interestingly, all of Damen's videos seem to impart a sense of otherworldliness, an uncanny dip into the subconscious. His videos for Binkbeats, for instance, explore this theme with an added layer of emotional intensity. His ability to take viewers on a transcendent journey while keeping the focus on the music is a skill few possess. As a bonus trivia point, did you know that Damen isn’t just a master behind the camera? He also enjoys playing with Lego and building intricate structures—a creative outlet that might seem incongruous with his complex video work, but which just further showcases his extraordinary imagination. Even here, he has managed to keep us guessing!
