French rapper Kobo comes to London to bring his track Baltimore to life - and director Felix Brady puts the viewer at the heart of the action in this everyday story of gangster life.

Brady's clever conceit is for all the action to take place within the masked Kobo and his buddies' most significant domain - their car. The camera constantly revolves from it's position on the passenger seat, and courtesy of motion control reveals the moments of their lives that add up to make a bigger picture. And the moments tell us that it's getting harder for them all the time. 

FELIX BRADY:

"I'm still a little obsessed with being a fly on the wall - I love the idea of just seeing things develop from one position.

"Coming off my last Video for Col3trane I had this taste for motion control I wanted to take further. When I heard this track I knew this new technique would marry well. It allows you to tell a lot but sustain a constant a dynamic camera move - made sense! Big up everyone who worked on it."
