Kader Sylla’s new video for adidas doesn’t really have a special name, not a lot of b-roll and is straight to the point. Very simple and beautifull edit by Tristan Warren. Jenkem Magazine has an Interview up with KADER that is worth a read.
Here it is DREAM2021MOVIEVILLE, a video that feels like an early Baker video mixed with A Happy Medium and a fair bit of Illegal Civ 2 put together into a 2021 blender.
We put out a very positive review of the trailer a while back and now get ready for the full thing. And no matter what you think, positive or negative it is hard to remain neutral about a project like this and that is worth something in itself.
Lately, there has been a multitude of videos from younger filmers that have had this: “The world is not alright!” type of feel. Videos like Naquan Rollings’ KILL BILL are good examples of that.
But this video makes you feel like we arrived in a post-apocalyptic world at times! Burning cars, scary run-ins with the homeless (possibly mentally ill), and a guy getting so heated that he went and chased some younger skaters with a gun! If you feel good about the direction we are going in then either you didn’t watch the same thing we just did or you enjoy seeing these sorts of things.
Anyway, it is powerful to see a skate-video translate and incorporate these things and weave them into the fabric in such a way that the whole thing leaves a strong impression on the viewer. Great work by Tristan Warren, we can’t wait for the full-length.
