03-27-12 – New York City, NY>Hartford, CT – “L.O.V.E.” is an up-beat, mellow, soul-ful ode to hip-hop. The music video will support the intimacy, authenticity, passion, and emotion of the song while introducing an additional layer of visual drama that complements the mood and creates a compelling piece of cinema in its own right.
This is the debut video for Ainkosi “Ghost 13” McCray and Desmond “Chize” Symonette off the short film soundtrack for “Hip-Hops Rhythm”. The focus will be on all the stylistic elements of hip-hop. Compelling cinematic imagery of Ghost 13 and Chize performing, b-boy’s/b-girls’ dancing and various a rhyme book finding its way back are key to complementing the film, as are the concept and locations being deeply rooted in the hip-hop culture.
Much like the short film and song, it will be suggestive of a narrative without telling a detailed story. It will take the elements of a block party performance video (gritty graffiti walls, outdoor dancing, small stage performance, lighting, a fluid camera) and adapt them into an realistic old school hip-hop feel.
