Rob Ulitski - 30th June 2021

Directing duo JAK riff on the perpetual presence of lockdown in the action-packed promo for Rudimental's Straight From The Heart. 

Opening with a selection of abstract POV shots and run-ins with various members of the public, the protagonist is revealed to have a boombox for a head, and an insatiable urge to go out and party. 

Infused with a frenetic, unabashed energy and influenced by videos such as the iconic Jonas Åkerlund-directed video for The Prodigy's Smack My B**** Up, the video has a refreshing concept and a confident perspective, and is an exciting sneak peek of Rudimental's latest album release coming September 3rd.
