Wretch 32 ft. Donae'o, Kojo Funds 'Whistle' by Joao Retorta
Wretch 32, in his Juventus shirt and chat about central midfield, is the latest British rap star to proclaim his love of football. And Joao Retorta's video for Whistle is definitely a game of two halves.
This is is a very effective split screen video incorporating rhythmic shot repetition and dual coverage of the performers that adds another dimension to the party/club scenario. Nice work.
"There’s quite a playful and repetitive feel to the instrumental of ‘Whistle’ that I wanted to replicate with these visuals. I wanted to create a video that kept going back whilst moving forward. A playful depiction of a house party, an element that came attached to the brief, where we see our artists amidst a crowd and our camera moving in quite a mechanical manner, gradually loosening up and isn't that what house parties are all about? That same walk from the couch to the fridge, whilst the night turns into day.”
