Cat Velez - 25th Jan 2016

Meji Alabi has directed this fun, impressively-shot, animation-infused video for Maleek Berry's new single For My People featuring Sneakbo. It's all about the party, and sees Maleek getting down with his friends at a party, with each dancer showing off their particular style. 

MEJI ALABI: 

"When I heard the track I felt it was all about good vibes and good times with good friends. So we took a small space and virtually had a real party in there, capturing some amazing and genuine moments between real friends. Being a sucker for nostalgia - we threw in some old VHS footage into the mix to give it that old house party vibe and tied it all together with a bit of animation to create a piece that hopefully makes a few people smile. Big thanks to the production team and everyone involved!"
