Lassamie Prasimay - 3rd July 2018

A young man embarks on an emotional journey to self acceptance, without ever leaving home, in Ralph Briscoe and Jay Stephen's absorbing video for Bondax. 

As the young man (played by Paul Raschid) goes from one persona to the next, with scenes jumping from being dark and unnerving to seductive and humorous, the film portrays the highs and lows of someone in constant conflict with their identity. It also delves into the unrealistic expectations we place upon ourselves to be like other people and the obsession to be perfect, and on the pressures young men feel to constantly hide their emotions.

The film for the song Real Thing - featuring Andreya Tatyana on vocals - is a collaboration between Briscoe and Stephen, both creatives at top London VFX company Time Based Arts. 

Ralph Briscoe, Jay Stephen: "We wanted to shed light on the struggles people go through behind closed doors. Our film explores the journey of self love and the importance of accepting yourself as the real you.”
