The video will feature Despot, beating himself up, as he performs his track.
We open to a POV shot from the perspective of a person quickly walking over to Alec on the street. The person’s fist enters the frame, heading for Alec’s face.
We cut to the reverse shot, and it’s Alec punching towards the camera (Alec). Body double Alec runs off and we see Alec from his POV.
We only see the POV camera angles, so Alec’s “body double” will just have to wear the same outfit. It’s just a matter of getting the reverse shot of Alec, and there we have Alec attacking Alec in various ways.
These attacks will happen throughout the video. Some examples:
-Alec throws a rock at Alec from the rooftop of a building
-Alec rides a bike over to Alec and smashes a beer bottle on his head
-Alec gives Alec the finger from the window of a moving car
-Alec kicks Alec in the balls
The artist will perform in a cloud of dense mist. The air is milky and it’s difficult to see more than a few feet away. The cameras move through the vapor, finding and losing the artist. We capture the POV of both the artist and the perspective of an unseen voyeur who is wandering through the thick fog. The video will be suspenseful and dreamy, weaving in and out of visibility.
Characters or objects appear that are unexpected. Examples: a large man with an interesting look, someone lying on the ground, a motorcycle, etc. These decisions will be artist/track specific. This can be accomplished at one of the many spas in NY that have steam rooms. Depending on the artist, wardrobe could be anything from a towel/robe to a full suit.
