Black Swan's Choreographer Benjamin Millepied Teams Up With Zeds Dead For "Demons" Video

Belvedere Vodka and Noisey, VICE Media's music channel, premiere Benjamin Millepied's music video for "Demons" from the Canadian DJ/production duo Zeds Dead. The video is a part of Noisey and Belvedere Vodka's new initiative, The Music Video Project - a six-part series that pairs musicians with non-traditional music video directors.

Benjamin Millepied on the collaboration: "The collaborative process here is interesting because you pick a song that you like, you have ideas, and then you put them on paper. You also have a band who has a specific image and then you add the film coloring and special effects. I think everybody brought something special to the video."
