David WilsonDavid Wilson

David Wilson has carved a niche for himself in the music video industry with visually arresting and boldly imaginative works. Not content with following established norms, Wilson weaves a unique blend of life, color, and energy that reaches out and grabs the audience, dare I say, like an insistent calling for our full attention. Wonderfully adept at crafting the visual representation of songs, he has masterfully directed videos for Metronomy, Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala and Royal Blood, to name but a few, with each piece bearing his distinctive signature style.

An interesting, or let's say 'quirky', fact about Wilson is his inability to shoebox his ideas, making us scramble at times for meaning, gladly though. He directed Arcade Fire’s "We Exist" in 2014 which featured actor Andrew Garfield in drag, navigating a rather hostile bar environment. It's a vivid, poignant, and thought-provoking video that creates a dialogue around gender identity and intolerance, making us sit up, watch, and introspect. To add a last sprinkle of Wilson flair, many folks don't know his Tame Impala’s "Let it Happen" video was inspired by an unfortunate personal experience of a particularly unruly airplane turbulence. Regardless of how he sources his inspiration, one thing is clear - David Wilson is a creative powerhouse, turning music into visual poetry.
