In Midnight To Monaco’s first video ‘One In A Million’ we created a distinct set of characters to set up the Midnight To Monaco world. Ricky played a wannabe actor spiraling out of control as he makes ends meet through his escort services. In One Way Ticket we pick the story back up at the house of Hollywood music producer Donnie Sloan and his girlfriend x-adult star Brenda Wilder. Discovering his true talent, we see Donnie take Ricky under his wing, penning and recording their classic track ‘One Way Ticket’, helping make Ricky into a true Hollywood star.
Shot on location for two days in Mexico City and From The Director:
"I was interested in contrasts. Being 'bad' vs being 'good'. Total freedom vs the trappings of fame/celebrity, and all the vacuousness that goes with it. All framed within a little story about two best friends who drift apart.
The idea of contrast really drove the way we told that story. Art direction and colour were obviously a big part of this. DOP Ben Kitchens really did a fantastic job.
