Most modern pop culture references to robots illustrate them as innately evil, but what if they could be a companion?
“This concept can barely be seen as futuristic at this point as humans have already formed quite the relationship with technology and androids are just around the corner, I just tried to keep the story as grounded as possible. I’m a big fan of Keys N Krates so it was awesome putting visuals to one of their tracks.” – Director Nathan Boey
Toronto electronic outfit Keys N Krates present their official music video for their beautiful single “Love Again (feat. Ouici)” from their Midnite Mass EP.
Directed by Nathan Boey and produced by The Field Inc.
The 25th annual MuchMusic Video Awards took place last night in Toronto, and The Field was there for the biggest party of the summer!
We started off at the #FieldParty14, the Field’s 12th annual pre-party, and it was an absolute blast. Later in the night at the MMVA’s, we took home 3 awards from the 9 nominations for The Field produced videos!
Major congratulations going out to The Field’s Director Stephano Barberis this week, who won BIG at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards on September 8th. Stephano was awarded the prestigious Music Video Director of The Year at the CCMA’s, for a staggering SIXTH time.
Not only has Stephano won this award 6 times in the past 7 years for his amazing country music video work, but this year’s awards brings his total award wins as Director to TWENTY-FIVE statues overall! This a fantastic accomplishment, and is a Canadian record for the number of CCMA Award Director of the Year wins for one individual. Overall, he has been nominated an astounding 58 awards during his career so far.
To say this recognition is well-deserved is an understatement. Over the past decade, Stephano has directed 123 music videos, 54 of which have entered the Top 20, including over a dozen that have peaked at #1 both nationally and internationally. It is commonplace to see all Top 5 music videos on CMT.ca be Stephano directed pieces.
Mr.Barberis does more than just country music videos – he is consistently working with artists to create videos in all genres of music, while his own electronic music project “Breathe of My Leaves” is set to debut internationally in October.
Says Stephano of this year’s win, “This surprising, consecutive recognition just makes me so thankful and brings tears to my eyes. My main goal is that I remain unique and make the best videos possible for all who come to me. If the artists don’t look good, I don’t look good.”

The video features poignant and striking imagery, blending the beautiful with the bizarre. Rob Moir states in the Aux.TV article, “Watching Grandson and Son’s visual interpretation compliment the song so perfectly, I felt awestruck. The hammer hit the nail right on the head. I simply love it.” We couldn’t agree more!
