A constantly moving camera on a tower block staircase finds Jelani Blackman on every landing, and dizzying sense of disorientation and claustrophobia, in Joao Retorta's video for Lockjaw.

JOAO RETORTA:

"Informed by a line in the chorus ‘My dons going straight to the topfloor', the video for Jelani Blackman’s Lockjaw sees camera moving up a staircase at an undisclosed location, constantly finding Jelani on each flight in a fake one-shot.

"It’s a technique-based concept presented in a very rugged manner. Camera moves hand-held at all times and without a clear sense of horizon at moments, creating a somewhat disorientating and claustrophobic feel as we keep moving up but never really go anywhere."
