Femi Ladi's fabulous video for Pa Salieu and Backroad Gee utilizes motion control technology in a way that adds another level of thrills into a compelling performance.


"From the first listen, I was blown away by the track. The song is hard, raw and in your face. I wanted to reflect that in this video. With a gritty performance being at the heart of it, I wanted an interesting way to showcase each rappers 'family' but keeping it in a cohesive world.

"The idea was to replicate the camera movement precisely for each performance, allowing us to switch between the rappers and their boys seamlessly throughout the video. The G6 moco guys really killed it and helped me understand the capacity of the robot. Together them and my DOP Stefan Yap really pushed for interesting angles and crazy moves whilst Pa, Backroad and their boys came with incredible energy every single take!

"Was a pleasure shooting this one!"
