MOTi ft. Nabiha 'Turn Me Up' by Cry\\Wolf

Cat Velez - 6th July 2016

The underground rave scene is dead in Cry\\Wolf's action video for Turn Me Up - until undercover producer MOTi brings the party via high-powered boomboxes. 

Singer Nabiha lets everyone know what's up with some spirited vocals in the street before joining in and dancing until the ambulance arrives. And MOTi and Nabiha have clearly done this before. They have come prepared, riding off into the night in their getaway car. 

The video, shot on the impressive New York set at the Nu Boyana studio in Bulgaria, features some slick, nighttime cinematography, cool colouring and fast car driving sequences, resulting in some exciting Hollywood-style action and energy. 

CRY\\WOLF:

"We shot the promo in Bulgaria on the excellent set at Nu Boyana on the outskirts of Sofia. With a bucket load of film talent at our disposal the excellent team put together by our producer Dobi Manolova and good people at B2Y production managed to recreate our treatment down to the letter, and in most aspects exceeded expectations.

"Shot on Red Dragon by the talented Bart Sienkiewicz, the New York and London film sets come to life in neon and blue swathes of colour creating a vivid landscape that became it's own distinctive world. With drones, a technocrane on a truck and incredible steadicam operator we managed to pull off some really cinematic moves that we just couldn’t do in the UK on the budget.

"We really wanted to create a mysterious element to the promo to disguise Moti's actions that reveal themselves at the crescendo, accentuated by slick motion graphics that bring the promo to life. We're super stoked on the outcome and can't wait to get back to Bulgaria to work with crew soon."
