On this week’s episode of The Road to Cinema Podcast, directors Ben and Alex Brewer take us behind the scenes of their work on music videos with artists Justin Bieber and Passion Pit. Ben and Alex, also known as The Brewer Brothers, are candid and articulate about their process from developing music video concepts to pitching their idea for the recent Nicolas Cage heist thriller ‘The Trust’ which marked their feature film debut. It’s a fun conversation on filmmaking that also includes some fascinating insights on the art of collaboration and the impact of casting and location choices.
