In a debut that's as electrifying as the song itself, Griffin Olis, another new addition to the Resolve directorial lineup, has taken the helm for Homixide Gang's "What It Is?!". Collaborating with the artists' vision to recreate the iconic intro of the movie "Belly," Griffin weaves a visual tapestry that's both nostalgic and distinctly contemporary.
The artists' desire to pay homage to the cinematic brilliance of "Belly" is masterfully realized through Griffin's lens. The video unfolds with a potent mix of high-speed cameras and intense black lights, capturing the essence of the movie's intro while infusing it with a fresh, modern energy.
What sets this video apart is Griffin's keen understanding of pacing and contrast. The deliberate use of slow-motion sequences, set against the backdrop of the song's energetic and aggressive beats, creates a tension that builds steadily throughout the video. The deliberate pacing serves as a narrative tool, keeping viewers on the edge until the climactic shoot-out that brings the visual story to its zenith.
One of the most remarkable feats of Griffin and the Resolve team is their ability to deliver under a tight deadline. Shot just over a week before release, "What It Is?!" stands as a testament to their dedication and proficiency in turning visions into reality, even when time is of the essence.
As Resolve eagerly anticipates future collaborations with Griffin Olis, there's a palpable excitement about the nostalgic, filmic look he brings to the table. Griffin's directorial debut not only pays homage to cinematic classics but also sets the stage for what promises to be an exciting journey ahead. Stay tuned as Griffin continues to leave his indelible mark on the world of music videos, seamlessly blending the past with the present and the nostalgic with the cutting edge.
