Munster ‘Monte’ Bdawi delivers a tense, cinematic drama for South London duo Ill Move Sporadic, beautifully shot by Stephen Price. Heavy on action and a starring role for a vintage Pontiac GTO, Munster had this to say about the video:
“The dedication the band have to a specific sound and high quality production, gave me the idea of featuring an extra character to the video, known as ‘The Chicken Wire Man’”.
“My inspiration for ‘The Chicken Wire Man’ was that he could have actually been built in the garage/studio, where ‘Ill Move Sporadic’ creates music. I imagined what else could be built in the garage, with all the creativity that flows through this small area, elements in the studio have come to life. A result of this creativity is a chicken wire robot which saves the group from enemies.
“The concept of the music video was inspired by the individuals behind ‘Ill Move Sporadic’, the group’s personalities, creativity and dedication to their music, needed to shine through the production.
“In this video I wanted to communicate creativity through the chicken wire robot and show how ideas can come to life. Also featured in the video is a red 1966 Pontiac GTO, as the group rise through the video, like ‘Mercury’. This adds to the creative theme and shows that ideas can make anything possible.
