Ben does not eschew the idea of small films, however. Or perhaps vignettes might be a better description. He admits to being a closet filmmaker, which is why there are so many outlandish and hysterical videos to be found with the five band members in starring roles. These videos don't, however, have anything to do with The Click Five's music.
When asked about his infamous character xXanderXx, Ben laughs and says, "It comes from being very confused. I don't know, it's just us goofing off. I think everybody in the band likes to stay creative in different ways, no matter what it is. Like when we got done touring and I just wanted to do something ridiculous. But I think everybody in the band has a lot of creative outlets. I mean, our drummer is very creative with Web design, our guitar player and bass players consistently find themselves making records with different people, because they're incredibly talented – as players and producers. And Kyle's the same way. He's always up to something creative."
One of their projects was to record four songs in a cathedral, "and it's a really cool project, because we just kind of did it ourselves. We had string players. I actually went down to check it out and help out a little bit, but basically when the band isn't completely doing something creative with the band, I think everybody always tries to find another creative outlet, just because it's kind of in our nature. In my case probably something a little more comedic," he laughs. (Check out the full Ben Romans interview
