ROCKIE FRESH - RIDE SLOW
Nem Perez & Nick Castle
Rockie and a girl (Alayli) are in a car that drives through an "electric" world similar to Nobody, but heavily in slow motion to fit the speed of the song. The camera is mounted in the center of the vehicle and rotates in circles a la Radiohead’ s Karma Police. It starts with Alayli chilling in the passenger seat rolling up a blunt, to Rockie driving the car and smoking, to the backseat where it passes by 2 girls making out and getting crazy. As the camera passes back past Rockie and Alayli, they sit nonchalantly as if nothing is going on and don’ t acknowledge the girls in the back. When the camera passes the girls in the back seat again, they are slightly less clothed this time, and getting a bit more crazy with eachother. The video continues with the camera rotating, and every pass of the back seat becomes more raunchy and ridiculous (eventually the two girls are basically naked and going in on eachother). Still Rockie and Alayli are unphased in the front seat, not paying them any attention, and just chilling and smoking and riding along. As the song ends, the visual becomes more and more distorted as Rockie smokes more until the ending, which seems to be in a total trippy haze, arriving at a looming and almost haunted-looking house at the end.
Nem - I love this treatment. The one thing I'd like to consider adding as the scenes progressively get more twisted I think it'd be cool to add a touch of prosthetic makeup to the models. or Maybe they're vampires? Examples below.
