Directing duo BRTHR (Alex Lee and Kyle Wightman) helm the cinematic, '80s-inspired music video for The Weeknd's next monster hit "In the Night."

"In terms of us and studying film and our philosophy, I think now we just really want to work to stand as [our] own unique entity; not purely a music video and not purely cinematic, but something in between," Wightman tells Milk. "Something that’s layered. We have a performance, but then within that we have moments that feel very cinematic."

"When we were talking about The Weeknd video, Abel [Tesfaye, a.k.a. The Weeknd] was talking about Michael Jackson videos, and how they had a lot of impact and how they felt like a huge production," Lee adds. "That’s what we tried to do with this video, but just with darker subject matter."
