The video for “Cause an Effect” features black and white painted heads rapping to N’fa’s Outkast-esque track. The stark color contrast and visual framing (as well as other clips he helmed for Modest Mouse, Nick Drake and Ben Harper) suggests Ledger had a fair understanding of film aesthetics and might have gone on to a vaunted career in directing had his life not been cut short.
“Every day I count my blessings that he directed this piece of art,” says N’fa, who knew late Oscar-winner from an early age. “When he had the idea about doing this video I had no question about it.”
