Naughty Boy ft. Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin - "Runnin' (Lose It All)"
Tuesday, March 15
1:30PM - 2:57PM
719 Congress Ave
Sometimes it takes guts to commission a music video, however safe. And while flying teams from the UK and France across the entire globe to the tiny island of Rangiroa nestled in the orbit of French Polynesia was a tall order, for Naughty Boy and Beyoncé it was worth the effort. Charlie Robins' epic underwater romance overcomes technological obstacles and the apparent limits of human endurance to deliver a spectacle that encapsulates the essence of the song: the two lovers engage in a physical struggle to reach one another, running impossibly on ocean floor and water's surface.

Charlie Robins knew that he wanted to be a director early on in life, and started out as a video artist at David Bowie's old college. His exciting music videos for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Chase and Status and MF Doom have been seen by millions, and the 2014 video for Klangkarussell’s "Falls Like Rain" earned award nominations across the world.
