Monster Florence 'Resourceful' by Luke Davies

Luke Bather - 9th Dec 2016

Luke Davies teams up with grime group Monster Florence in a menacing, cool performance video.

Taking elements from classic grime performances from SBTV and contrasting them against more choreographed, large-scale pop video tropes in this mean-looking black and white clip, Davies creates an excellent, jarring performance video that ramps up the style whilst still remaining faithful to the source material.

LUKE DAVIES:

"The Monster Florence guys are all very open and trusting when it comes to their films. If they weren’t, this music video would have never been made. The closest thing I could boil it down to was this, and heads up it still doesn’t make much sense… I wanted to take those Grime Daily & SBTV videos, the sort of high-paced, direct performance to camera films. And try to mix it with something with the scale and theatrics of Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller” music video. I thought that provided a lot of interesting juxtaposition to play with, and instead of trying to mix the two styles nice and neatly, I decided to let them clash. I think it makes for quite a jarring video that reflects the track and can hopefully really hold an audience’s attention for a few minutes."
