Novelist 'Calm' by Ehsan
Novelist is unphased by the drama circling around him, in Ehsan's fiery promo for Calm.
Shot last year and released to coincide with the grime star's 24th birthday, the hypnotic visual uses burning film overlays and erratic editing to convey a growing sense of drama and suspense as Novelist casually walks the nighttime streets of London. Ehsan intercuts Novelist's unruffled presence with cutaways of curious, and increasingly anxious bystanders, aware that something big is about to ignite.
It's a mesmerising visual, elevated by the artist's confident performance, DoP James Henry's camerawork, and Ehsan's fusion of gritty reality with otherworldly elements. A very different beast to the director's comedic video for Unknown P's Piers Morgan, released late last last year, but just as impressive.

As you may have noticed, this guy is a bit different. And having a face like a hanging basket is seriously getting him down. Especially when he gets the weed-killer treatment from a girl he likes.
Ehsan directs a banger for Unknown P, the world's poshest drill rapper - the creation of comedian Munya Chawawa - depicting a bombastic food fight among the vile upper classes.
