Cameron Busby helms a disorientating, VFX-fired trip into Belly's psyche for Requiem.

Busby plays off the 'requiem for a dream' line in the track to create what he calls a "surreal missed connection played out in Belly's head," with the elusive quality of a dream.

The camera swirls around Belly as he performs, and in an encounter with a girl which represents that connection that's not quite made. Performance elements are captured in restless sequences, from the harsh black and white spotlight that fixes on both Belly and featured artist Nav, to the split-screen shots drenched in psychedelic-bright colour.

With his off-kilter, dreamlike approach, Busby puts a distinctive twist on the classic R&B performance video.
