Kano and Nez's last collaboration, for Feel Free, was good. But this is something else.
The Streets’ Heaven For The Weather by Nez
Always a natural performer in videos, Mike Skinner is now working outside his cheeky chap and drug-fuelled lad about town comfort-zone.
After playing the doting under-pressure family man in Rozan & Schmeltz's Everything Is Borrowed video, here's further evidence of increased range, courtesy of Nez's video for Heaven For The Weather: the motivational life-guru.
The idea is based on one of his favourite subjects, self-help guides, and Nez nails the milieu. Shot at the Mermaid Theatre Conference and Events Centre in Central London, Mike makes a convincing, charismatic, slightly creepy life coach - backed up with the characteristic new age visuals, nonsense graphs and added viddy-wierdness.
However his message is decidedly untypical of the genre: it makes sense. Maybe Mike should turn his hand to proper drama. He'd be a better rapper-turned-actor than LL Cool J, surely
Meanwhile, after his MVA best urban video win with Kano, Nez goes from strength to strength. Next project: Lily Allen.
|Production Company||Colonel Blimp|
|Director of Photography||Ross McLennan|
|Art Director||Ben Ansell|
Lily Allen is back, with lyrical sharpness and knowing on-camera presence fully intact.
Nez gets down to business for the fourth single from Bruno Mars' hit album Doowops & Hooligans with this cute suburban vignette starring Lenoard Nimoy.
