This is part four of a ten part series of music videos from the Midlake album "The Trials of Van Occupanther." Bella Union Records and World's Fair Management Group are hosting this series of videos over at YouTube. Midlake Guitarist Eric Pulido had this to say about the video:
"The video for 'Bandits' was filmed and directed by our good friend and music video cohort, Jon Collins. I was lucky enough to be cast as not only one of the bandits, but as the 'lead bandit' (cue narcissistic smile). The process was difficult due to lack of time, money, resources, and crystal, but nonetheless, the end product was a wonderful piece of work. The tunnel shots were my favorite because of the trickery Jon used to elongate the actual tunnel. The tunnel was really only about 15 ft long and 4 ft wide, but with the magic of technology, and actual magic, Jon was able to make it twist, turn, extend, and even do the hokey pokey. It was great to work with everyone involved with the project and help create a beautiful video to compliment the song."
