DJ Shadow 'Ozone Scraper' by Stefano Ottaviano

Rob Ulitski - 22nd Aug 2023

Stefano Ottaviano directs a marvellously cinematic road trip promo for DJ Shadow, filmed in Uzbekistan. 

The video for Ozone Scraper - the first release from Shadow's latest album - is the story of a man who commits to leaving his home village and explore the land beyond his valley - on the cherished motorcycle, passed down from his father.

The bike is old and temperamental, making the journey anything but straightforward, but as he traverses unfamiliar terrain, it all becomes worth it in the end. Ultimately the traveller reaches a state of nirvana, represented by an unforeseen change to another medium.  

Up to that point, every frame composed by Ottaviano and shot by DoP Andres Arochi is stunning. Boasting breathtaking landscapes and a quietly inspirational character arc, this is a wonderful video which feels like a true adventure - in the spirit of DJ Shadow's new musical direction.
