Shooting the Archetypes::3
The latest shoot for the Archetypes Black or White video saw Sole rapping on a railway bridge in Observatory, switching between spitting evil to James Brown moves in a second.
Then on to Langa township where Lolo planned a sequence involving the local kids. They’d join in while he raps into a camera with a fisheye lens, then throws it into the air, at which point a close up becomes an aerial shot.
We finished up back at Camps Bay with more emceeing from the rocks as the sun went down. A final sequence had the guys rapping together as they walked along the beach, awesome improvised choreography with only a mobile phone for synch.
Once we’d lost the light, it was back to Cinehack HQ’s outdoor screening room to watch the footage and work out where to go from here…
