Lots of stars, both in terms of the features by Big Sean, Rae Sremmurd, Pharrell Williams and Quavo, and in terms of the multiple suns that hover above the desert in this collabo video for producer Mike Will Made It.
Tinie Tempah teams up with Emil Nava for the new film ‘Chasing Flies ft. Nea’. The video provides us with a captivating real life insight of a young Reading based rapper called ‘Stoner’.
Emil Nava, director: "Working on this project was like nothing I have ever done before. Tinie and His manager Dumi came to me and really wanted to make a youth culture film touching on life in Britain and it sounded so perfect for right now. We discussed different ideas and different approaches but then Tinie came to me with a video of this young rapper Stoner and his story was just too amazing
He has had a pretty unbelievable life and his story just had to be told. I spend about 2 weeks with Stoner finding out about his whole life as I wanted everything to be totally true and nothing staged. As I got deeper into his life It just god madder and madder. So much so me and Tinie also decided to make a short documentary about him which could even now turn into a feature. This music video was a slice of his life and there is so much to be told. I'm super excited for the world to meet Stoner, his loved ones, family and friends. He is a truly amazing person and I couldn't be more happy that Tinie brought us together.
The team around me were just like none other. I had Amy James throwing down in all areas of production with no support. Pat Meller my oldest friend, collaborator, and true legend shot on 35mm with basically 2 crew. My little brother Joe Nava smashed the art department alone. My girlfriend Cristina Squyres did everything from wardrobe, to hair and make up, to catering, and with a crew of just 8 of us it was pretty raw. Stoner and his family and friends opened their lives to us and it was one of the most touching experiences I have ever had on a shoot. Sean Fazende nailed the edit and Aubrey Woodiwiss did a truly beautiful grade
What Stoner is going through is hard to explain but I hope this shows a piece of how amazing he is. When the full film comes out you will really get to see how much so. This was a great collaboration between my New Company Ammolite Inc and Disturbing London and more films to come
Hope you enjoy and can't wait to get the full film finished and out to the world."
Those New Orleans floodwaters may have receeded, but there's still anger and style a'plenty left behind, especially when Beyoncé busts loose with a surprise, yet unsurprisingly strong video that reconnects her with her roots.
Dreams comes true in this super slomo (or, very fast, depending on your perspective) retelling of Jeff Lynne's life from childhood to success with ELO, working with fellow music legends on the Traveling Wilburys and on into the present tense.
Here's a way to make the most out of one location, but keep in mind it involves some of the most thrilling and impossible camera moves you've ever seen as we see whether this will be the song to save Labrinth's life.
In The Pines is not a safe place to be, but there's not much safety beyond them either. In this case we have a runner on a suicide mission of sorts, unable to outrun most of the arrows hurtling his way as he makes his way to a surprising last stand.
