WHO WE ARE
We are BANGS, a Brooklyn-based creative team, specializing in music videos and commercials.
We've collaborated with artists such as Hundred Waters, Autre Ne Veut, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The Knocks, and more, and recently directed a Lego commercial. Work has been featured in PromoNews, The NY Times, NPR, and Buzzfeed, and screened at BUG, The Milan Film Festival, The Apple Store, IFC, and BAM.
All work is directed by Allie Avital Tsypin and shot by Owen Donovan.

"Mutual Benefit Score Upper Class Malaise in Exquisite 'Advanced Falconry' Video" SPIN (Mutual Benefit)
"One of the deepest / most beautiful videos of the year....stunning visuals." Gorilla vs. Bear (Solar Year)

"Stanley Kubrick’s been dead for over 14 years, but clearly that didn’t stop him from directing this subtle, eerie clip...conjuring up images from his past works (Barry Lyndon and The Shining...) But here’s the weird thing: According to information on the video...it’s just another video by creative team BANGS." -Consequence of Sound (Autre ne Veut)
"A stark, gorgeous clip, a series of austere but increasingly intense black-and-white images...a truly beautiful piece of work" - Stereogum (Zola Jesus)
"Marnie Stern's latest video vividly captures what makes her music tick." - SPIN (Marnie Stern)
