Bedroom direct a hyper-stylised promo for British R&B singer Danny Dwyer's Mortal Kombat.Opening, appropriately enough, with a 90's era video game aesthetic featuring Dwyer as a character, the video soon takes on a less animated yet equally distinctive style, as we see him traverse a beach in various offbeat vignettes in long Columbo-style coat and boots. The directing duo capture Dwyer’s chaotic state of mind through playful images and techniques, empty vast landscapes and smart location choices to reflect the feeling of the song. They also reference the New Wave style pioneered by the late great Jean-Luc Godard, allowing their choices to put their own modern spin on the movement that revolutionised modern cinema. Imbuing the concept with a sense of controlled chaos, the Bedroom boys keep to their trademark abstract style, whilst allowing an editiorial fashion-esque aesthetic to seep through. It's great work - and look out for some fun blink-and-you’ll-miss cameos too.
