You know how youtube has those “featured videos” up on their homepage. That’s how I found this:
“Latin Revenge”/ Azeem/ 2009/ beats by DJ Zeph/ dir. Ben Stokes
Can’t say that I’m really digging the song…or the beats. It works tho… in fact I thinks its growing on me. I have to say the animation is a little jarring (apparently made with After Effects) but what can you expect when you animate cut-out snapshots. HOWEVER, there is sooo much to look at (hold up was that Darth Vader!?), that I can’t help but be transfixed to the screen. It has that South Park vibe too. And it has a nice progression to it and I think I can safely say no current music video out there looks like this, so good work on the originality. And I believe those are actual streets, so if you live in the Mission District of San Francisco, stand up!
BTW, who is this Azeem dude? Has anyone ever heard of this guy before?
