Luke Bather - 11th Aug 2016

Carlos Lopez Estrada astounds again with some knockout fight night choreography.

It takes a hell of a lot of effort to choreograph a dance, just as it does to choreograph a fight. To choreograph both simultaneously so that they weave in and out of one another is truly some next level work.

Carlos' video for Watsky combines these disciplines with some great rhythmic timing, both from an edit and story standpoint and douses the whole thing with heaps of attitude. It's a dreamlike boxing match ballet than manages to be dizzying, cartoonish and theatrical all whilst still being coolly menacing.
