Sometimes, no matter how far you drive, you always wind up in the same place. In this hypnotic video for Canyon City’s “Comets”, director Ben Phillippo takes us on a road trip that isn’t quite what it seems.

Director’s Vison

I’m often captivated by the notion of cycles. What does it mean to be trapped in a cycle, what does it take to break free, and does liberation come at a cost?

Canyon City’s “Comets” is a beautiful song that provided the perfect setting to explore these questions. Discussions with the artist confirmed we were on the same page. As he put it, “this video really captures how it feels to be stuck in place, stuck in a feeling, stuck in a circumstance, or stuck in your mind.”
