Mellah 'Habit' by Thomas James

Rob Ulitski - 10th July 2020

Thomas James drops the self-destructive new video for Mellah's Habit. 

Shot entirely during lockdown, the visual features many versions of the artist, who discover increasingly disturbing ways to hurt himself/themselves. 

From lemon juice in the eye to glass bottles smashed across the head, Mellah's clones just can't seem to break the habit - and all take huge pleasure in the pain. 

DoP Ruben Wooden Dechamps uses off-kilter framing and excruciating close-ups to match the perplexing and uncomfortable concept, and the use of sci-fi-esque lighting in the bridge adds to the offbeat vibe.
