Ray Blk '5050' by Hector Dockrill
Hector Dockrill has taken an honest, doc-style approach to his performance video for London R&B singer-songwriter Ray Blk. Shot in South London by Deepa Keshvala, the video provides a portrait of Ray and her crew, capturing their style and attitude, as well as their hairstylist and kebab shop of choice.
"We wanted to make a video to introduce Ray, her crew and her world in an honest light. I also wanted to do it in a way that hasn't really been seen before with a group of young women in London, so I figured that turning the 'hood video' on it's head could be an interesting approach.
"Ray's girls did most of the work for us - they're all strong, arresting young women and didn't need much direction. We switched to a more abstract set-up towards the end to elevate it from being a purely docu-style video and Naomi Richardsons styling was the icing on the cake."
