Rob Ulitski - 11th Dec 2019

Tired of being average? Jelani Blackman and his gang initiate an everyman into their clan in Brock Neal Roberts' video for Average Joe. 

Frenetically cutting between avant-garde performance setups and snapshots of a narrative, the lo-fi aesthetic is achieved through a mismatched montage of shots, night vision cameras and unusual POV angles, which create a surreal and hallucinatory vibe.

Moving at a quickfire pace, Jelani Blackman doesn't hang around in getting the message across - join him, and you'll never be average again, no matter who you were before...
