Diplo ft Elderbrook & Andhim 'One By One' by Stefano Ottaviano

Rob Ulitski - 21st May 2021

Stefano Ottaviano directs a whimsical, VFX-heavy promo for Diplo, featuring Elderbrook and Andhim.

Scanning a variety of surreal, textural vignettes, the video boasts an artistic, dreamlike aesthetic, following one character as they transition from one transcendent setup to another. 

On some kind of perpetual loop, the video feels distinctly otherworldly, almost a product of the subconscious in its abstract presentation.

The narrative isn't meant to be linear, the focus here is on shapes, textures, light, colour... all the things that exist as part of our world, and bring an unexplained vibrance to the everyday.
