Ocean Wisdom '4am' by Shan Phearon
Shan Phearon tells a stylised story of a gangster's rise and fall, for fast-rapping Ocean Wisdom.
Phearon experiments with unrelenting axis roll photography and extreme wide angle perspectives for their storytelling possibilities, and its a terrific sensory experience. It's also a metaphor for the theme of lives spinning out of control.
Turning rap iconography into a gothic acid-opera with crime thrills gone awry & lovers on the lam hints, the new video from recent Warning signing Ocean Wisdom aims to hypnotise quite like the mind-bending cadence of the artist fronting.
To achieve their gothic rap opera, the production team designed and created their own hacked motorized rollover camera rig - controlling the device using a Playstation controller. Very smart filmmaking indeed.
