Rob Ulitski - 8th Oct 2019

Felix Brady's dreamlike, kaleidoscopic visuals take centre stage in Mr Sun (Miss Da Sun) by Greentea Peng. 

Playing vivid, lush landscapes off against brutalist city structures, the camera continuously pushes forward into different environments, in this latest example of Brady's resourcefully creative approach to music video FX.

Aira (aka Greentea Peng) acts as a guide of sorts, her hypnotic, trance-like performance leading us from one environment to the next, through unusual mirror portals (several of which even come with their own bouncer). And Harry Wheeler's cinematography takes the strongest elements from nature and technology, and weaves them into his images. A tube carriage, drowned in a Matrix-style green feels futuristic and striking, and in the next frame we are out in a park, washed in sunlight and amongst the autumnal colours of nature. 

The VFX, courtesy of Berlin-based Mikko Ruostila, also deserves a shout-out. The different layers and tracking of the environments is no walk in the park, however the team have perfectly executed an immersive and surreal world for Greentea Peng to thrive in. This is one of the more unique videos you will see this year, and it's evident that the team have worked passionately to get the project finished to such a high standard.
