Iron Maiden Video Director Explains Speed Of Light Video Game Theme
Leon, the creative director at Phantom management, tells Metal Hammer: "It seemed a perfect fit - 40 years of metal explored alongside four decades of video games.
"I pitched this idea to Rod Smallwood and the guys in the band. They loved the concept and asked if I could pull it off. I figured it was Iron Maiden so I had to pull it off - and it had to be the best thing I've ever done."
He continues: "The video is littered with nods to Iron Maiden artwork - whether it's the poses of the characters at certain key moments, or imagery woven into the background art. There's a lot to look out for in the video." Watch the video here.
