Shout to Che and David. Dopeness from NZ.
The homey David Dallas relocated from New Zealand to New York and just dropped the video for the first song leaked off his Falling Into Place album. Or as he put it:
“Sometimes you just wanna make a rap video at a days notice. Especially when you grow up on the other side of the earth and get a chance to go to a place you’ve only seen in skate vids, the Mo Money, Mo Problems music video and at the end of Men In Black. No days off until this thing takes off.”
Here are the newest visuals from the homey David Dallas, all the way from New Zealand to NYC. I really like the vibe of this record and the video too, plus…he rapped with a kitten in his hoody. I mean…come on. Epic.
The video was conceived by Special Problems (production company behind Alicia Key’s HP commercial) and sees 7 different directors/animators interpreting 7 parts of the song. Each person was given a segment of the song and access to David Dallas. A few rules were put in place. Each scene was to be shot on a different format: 16mm film, VHS, Stop Motion, 3d Animation, and during the creation of the video, the directors were not allowed to know what each other were doing. The result is a series of beautiful, very different images pieced together to make the video.
