Heath Ledger Directed Modest Mouse Music Video

The much anticipated directing project from Heath Ledger - for Modest Mouse tune, Rat King, - has finally been released. The animated video tells the story of burly whale sea captains gruesomely fishing the seas for humans. The story was created to support Sea Shepherd an organization that defends ocean wildlife worldwide.

The illustration and co-direction credits go to Daniel Auber via production company The Masses. Check out The Masses Website for more on the process of making the video with and without Heath.
