Caleb Steph 'Black Boy' by Daniel Regan
Daniel Regan's epic video for Caleb Steph gets to the heart of an African-American community, and the cycle of gang violence that leads to tragedy.
Regan opts to view this crisis - which has obvious echoes in the UK - entirely from the family perspective, with the story of a young man who is from a stable loving background, with a devoted younger brother, who nevertheless feels it necessary to arm himself.
What makes this portrait so effective is the realistic performances, and gorgeous black and white cinematography by Corey C Waters. It is also a substantial work of direction by Daniel Regan.
“I instantly connected with Caleb’s lyrics and message; it spoke to me on a personal level – having grown up myself in a gang heavy environment – and I felt strongly about bringing his story to another level visually.
“Black Boy is an echo of a larger problem, that of gun violence, and a call to attention on a sad subject about a harsh reality of where we are as a society and as humans.”
