Fans will always have his movies and now they will have his music videos too.
Later this year, two music videos Heath Ledger worked on before his January 2008 death will finally be released Billboard confirms. They are the actor’s last directorial works.
The Oscar winner directed the animated video for the Modest Mouse song King Rat– which was a bonus track on the band’s 2007 We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank album.
A video for Grace Woodroofe’s cover of David Bowie‘s Quicksand will also be released.
Ledger decided to take on the video project after meeting singer Isaac Brock in Australia. “Heath and I have a mutual friend and when we were in Australia, my fiancé and some of us in the band went out on a boat with him and his family and friends and talked about the idea,” Brock told VH1 in 2007 interview. “The idea sort of dropped, but then he just sent me an email saying that he wanted to do it.”
The Modest Mouse video is animated by director and illustrator Daniel Auber, a member of Ledger’s film, music, and art collective The Masses.
