Tommy Jacob 'Untitled 6' by Matthieu Jacobs
The opening salvo in a series of videos for French producer Tommy Jacob's Project 001 by Matthieu Jacobs at Tramp Studio is a one shot featuring dancer L'Homme Bleu, whose easy, agile movements light up a Paris evening.
Jacobs does an impressive job creating something cinematic with the dancer's performance, and using the energy of the location, a residential suburb where locals drift wander past in the distance. That gives the piece of something special happening while grounded in the everyday.
"It was a project very interesting to do because I try to follow as much as possible the ideas that Tommy had in mind. He wrote a global concept that I translated in several music videos. The song "untitled 6" is the first one, there will be others coming soon.
"I met Tommy one year before during a documentary that I made on Future sound in Paris. The concept for the track "untitled 6" was to give to the dancer "l'homme bleu" a way to make his performance directly in relation to the song. It was shot in one take."
