Patience is Hector Dockrill and RAY BLK's third video collaboration - following their partnership for My Hood and 5050 - and even though their first video came out this time last year, we can already sense a strong progression from the pair.

Patience feels like the matured version of 5050. It was also shot at the hair salon - where else would you shoot a video about the virtues of patience - but with a beautiful steadicam treatment that feels far more considered.

Ray's musings on society's dreams of instant, viral fame becomes strikingly tangible as beautifully lit portraits of women at the salon - sitting, waiting, dreaming themselves - capture our imagination and somehow exemplify those human desires for validation, self expression, approval, and in our day and age, instant fame.
