promo video for the a-alikes documentary, the ballot or the bullet
director paul biedrzycki came to us with a series of video clips he wanted to use as a music video element in his new politically charged documentary about underground rap groupd, a-alikes. knowing we have a particular appetite for destroying things, he told us he wanted this section of the film to feel like it was 'being watched by a kid with a broken tv with rabbit ear antennae in bedford stuyvesant'. having lived in this neighbourhood of brooklyn not long ago, we were familiar with the vibe he wanted. we set about editing together the fragments he had, inserting various graphical elements to amp up the aesthetic and then obliterating the footage as best we could.
