For the past few weeks, I’ve been doing research for an upcoming music video project. The artist I’m working with has instrumentals reminiscent of audio production from the 1980s, so I’m looking to draw creatively from the visual techniques and narrative forms of that era. During my “research” I’ve come across some absolutely amazing stuff. For your viewing pleasure, I’ve placed a few gems below. Enjoy!
The Fat Boys – Are You Ready For Freddy?
Prince Markie Dee, Kool Rock-Ski, The Human Beat Box, and Uncle Frederick. Cross-Promotion at its finest.
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince – I Think I Can Beat Mike Tyson
Influenced by Coming to America, which was released a year earlier. Also, a star-studded cast including, Mike Tyson, Don King, and Alfonso Ribeiro a.k.a. Carlton Banks.
Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock – It Takes Two
Rob Base having the time of his life. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve seen someone that giddy in my entire life… I envy him. (At the end we see E-Z Rock perform the first ever Dougie.)
