Great News from “The ILLZ”
OnSmash x 2DopeBoyz x YouHeardThatNew
are now Presenting: The ILLZ – “In Between Video Series” Dropping August 24th!!
Synopsis by HotMop Films:
With Antonio Tosca we wanted to create this character that The ILLZ embodies but also is a look that is opposite to what “Hip Hop” portrays. What we set out to do was flip the image of Hip Hop, I shot performances just like in the 90’s but rather it be grimy and in dark locations. We went to the west village and walked around. We let the city inspire us and dictate the shots and the mood we were feeling at the time.
This is the second video we did for The ILLZ’s “In Between Video Series”. It’s awesome working with creative people who are comfortable enough to live in the moment and in their own skin to just meet up with you and create on the spot. He took care of the bars and we made sure to capture the moments and make them as cinematic as possible. The pianos lent to this dreamlike but very real summer feel; so I went with these light refractions, that we shot through crystals in the studio, adding that overlay to mirror the beat and mood of the track. Proud to introduce to you Mr. Antonio Tosca. ENJOY!
