Bree Runway 'Little Nokia' by Ali Kurr
Ali Kurr visualises a sexy Nineties fever dream in her video for Bree Runway's Little Nokia.
With the song name-checking one of the most iconic - and indestructable - phones ever on the market, the promo sees Runway being interrupted by a Nokia 3310 every time she tries to get intimate with her man.
Cutting to a grungy garage, a spiked mohican-sporting Bree hangs from the roof, before mounting a mechanical bull, artfully refashioned to resemble a giant Nokia. It's a feast of nostalgia with an edgy and dark undertone, and the reference to 1983 body horror Videodrome in the final scene is a perfect way to polish off the concept.
Strikingly shot by DoP Amelia Hazlerigg, the aesthetic is perfectly balanced between commercial and quirky, with just a touch of creepy to keep viewers on their toes.
“For this video I wanted to pay homage to the MTV greats," says Kurr, "But blend and package them together so it feels totally fresh and unique.” Job done.
