Heath Ledger's final music video to premiere online

Wednesday August 5, 2009

A rock video directed by the late Hollywood star Heath Ledger is due to debut online.

The actor, who passed away in January 2008, devised the theme for US band Modest Mouse's King Rat video. It raises awareness of commercial whaling off the coast of his native Australia.

The video was unfinished when 28-year-old Heath died, but a video company in which he had been partner completed it in his honour.

The animated piece will debut on MySpace Music, and will be available to purhcase on the US iTunes store.

All proceeds within its first month will go toward Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a marine wildlife conservation organisation working to end the destruction of wildlife in the world's oceans.
