Solo45 ft Stormzy '5ive ' by Javier Alejandro
How do you get a horse and a sawn-off shotgun onto a London estate without being arrested? Ask Javier Alejandro, who's created a cool-looking mix of tough realism and flights of imagination for Solo45.
A call to arms for a revolution, the surreal elements in a very realistic setting combine with the vibrant teal & orange colour palette and woozy camera movements to create a dizzying display of passion and aggression.
"I thoroughly enjoyed making this video, I feel like I am a step closer to the type of visuals I want to create as a director. It was especially great working with an artist that bounced off the ideas I came up with and built on the elements with me.
"The crew was great, especially Ruben and Antoine they helped me create this ambitious video out of nothing. I'm excited and looking forward to our next one."
