Rukhsana Merrise 'Mon£y' by Matthew Hopper
Following the money has been the subject of TV shows and documentaries, and now it's the theme of the absorbing video for South London singer Rukhsana Merrise's Mon£y.
Shot in Brixton, Matthew Hopper's music video directing debut starts with Rukhsana writing on a £5 note, and then dropping it. Then we follow its journey, as it passes through several hands, and into the underworld. Each scenario gets its due - and there's a satisfying ending too.
"I really wanted to make a video that explored the theory of 6 degrees of separation via the movement of money between people. Developing this idea, I loved the notion of a narrative following a single £5 note as it is passed from character to character and used in progressively immoral and illicit ways.
"I had been sitting on this idea for a while and it was just a case of waiting for a relevant track to come along to bring the concept to life. Luckily it did. Rox's track had a great beat, a fresh sound and lyrics centred on money and greed which perfectly fit my idea. Performance in the form of busking meant I could start and end the narrative with Rox and bring the story full circle."
