Brooklyn Beckham makes his directorial debut with edgy End Of The World music video as he expresses his hopes of doing more ‘in the future’
Brooklyn Beckham has made his directorial debut for Midlands-based band JAWS’ End Of The World music video.
The 20-year-old son of David and Victoria said he is thrilled to have shot the edgy black and white video after ‘falling in love with the song’ and can’t wait to direct more music videos in the future.
Filmed at the Roaring Tiger Karate Club in Coseley, Brooklyn wanted the video to be a touching tribute to drummer Eddy Geach’s late father, who was a karate fan.

‘Having seen the band in London on their recent tour, Brooklyn said: ‘I went to a JAWS gig and I fell in love with a song of theirs called End Of The World.
‘It sparked an idea in me to make a music video for the guys – I met with Connor and the band to ask them if I could.
‘They loved the idea that Louis and I came up with and before we knew it, we were shooting it.

‘I had so much fun filming and co-directing this one, I would love to direct more videos in future.
‘It’s a personal song for JAWS, so we did a recce down in Connor’s hometown to pool our thoughts for it. We wanted to use karate kids because they have a meaningful connection to the band and it’s a theme that follows from the album artwork.’
Brooklyn’s directorial debut comes after he has reportedly left colleagues stunned over his ‘lack of basic skills’ during his internship with iconic photographer Rankin, reports The Sun.

Brooklyn embarked upon the dream internship earlier this month after the legendary snapper, 52, was impressed with Brooklyn’s photo of Sir David Attenborough in Africa.
But it appears Brooklyn – who has previously shot campaigns for Burberry and published his own photography book – is said to be struggling with the first days of the intense internship – with colleagues claiming he has to be treated like a complete novice.
A source told the website: ‘Everyone knew Brooklyn’s work needed fine tuning but no one knew his knowledge of the simplest tasks was so off.

‘Everyone had high hopes for him but it’s not been the most impressive start.
‘He’s lacking in most areas. But he’s trying to make up for it in enthusiasm.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Brooklyn and Rankin for comment.
The star boasts an impressive portfolio of photography assignments – he recently shot his model girlfriend Hana Cross, 22, for the cover of Wonderland Magazine.
And the star also snapped Rocketman stars Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell for Man About Town magazine earlier in the summer.
In July 2018, Brooklyn quit his New York photography course after just one year, amid claims he was missing his mum Victoria.

The star bowed out of his four-year course, which he started in September 2017 at the world-renowned Parsons School of Design.
Tuition fees at the prestigious school cost more than $23,000 per term.
Brooklyn was reportedly homesick and missing his family in the U.K.

He told pals months ago he wanted to leave – according to the Mirror, but decided to stick it out to the end of term.
Brooklyn deferred the course for an internship with a respected British photographer, whose name was initially a secret – but was later revealed to be Rankin.
The teenager released a book of photos, What I See in 2017, which was slammed by critics.
One said the book had ‘terrible photos and worse captions’.
The book made the Sunday Times bestseller list, while being named eighth bestselling UK photography book this year.
