STRANGER THINGS’ Finn Wolfhard Directed a Western-Style Music Video

It’s pretty common knowledge at this point that Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard is passionate about music: He’s starred in multiple music videos for Canadian punk band PUP, and he even plays music himself from time to time. Now he’s stepping to the other side of the camera, since it was just revealed that he directed California band Spendtime Palace’s new music video for their song “Sonora” (via Billboard).

Wolfhard actually co-directed the clip, alongside friend and former Vine celebrity Josh Ovalle. The two eventually decided they wanted to direct some sort of project together, and that’s when Ovalle suggested a video for a Spendtime Palace song, since he went to high school with the band members.

“Once we listened to the song a bunch of times we were thinking of what the tone was and we thought it had a western feel, we thought, ‘What if we do a Western, but with two teenagers in 2017 California,'” Wolfhard said.

So that’s what they did, and Wolfhard stars as one of those teenagers. It’s worth noting that the clip also stars Iris Apatow, known for her appearance in Netflix series Love and also as the daughter of professional funny people Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow. Speaking of directors, Wolfhard said he got the bug to try it out himself by watching The Duffer Brothers work on Stranger Things:

“When I get off school or I’m on set, if I’m not filming I go and watch them direct another scene, and I definitely learn from them. There’s definitely a lot of patience and trusting each other [on set].”

Watch the video above, and let us know what you think of Wolfhard’s directorial effort.
