Lassamie Prasimay - 20th Nov 2018

Matilda Finn creates a moving collage to reflect Jay Rock's political words to For What It's Worth, bringing to life the characters in his lyrics as they appear like ghosts along the sidewalk.

In contrast to the pale linear tracking shot, the visuals suddenly plunge into darkness midway through the video, capturing closer and more intimate portraits. Finn masterfully causes tension through the raw reality of the situations depicted in this video, mainly shot in neutral monochrome tones, but then breaking into a powerful midnight blue.

Matilda Finn has just signed to Stink Films for commercial and music video representation in the UK. Katie Lambert, EP of Music at Stink in London, says: "We’re overjoyed. I feel like Matilda is a unique voice and artist. I cannot wait to see what we do next."
