"I had watched this movie called 'The Science of Sleep' about a year ago and I fell in love with the film," Weiland tells Spinner. "I thought it was such a cool and interesting approach and I wanted to use that in a video sometime."
Simultaneously, Weiland had the idea that he wanted to reach out to film students and see if he could give someone a big break. Like, a really big break. So when relative newcomer Dennis Roberts came up with a treatment that was surprisingly close to what Weiland had already envisioned, he got the go ahead. "I was really impressed," says Weiland. "I've worked with huge video directors and [Roberts] and his crew were just as professional as anyone I've ever worked with." Perhaps that's because it wasn't actually Roberts' first rodeo - he's directed videos for artists such as Beck and Simian before this.
Nonetheless, Weiland says that 'Tangle with Your Mind' was a "really fun video to make." We're happy to report that it's also a fun one to watch.
