MAKE THEM WHEELS ROLL
Having impressed Warner Music with our prior collaboration with Safia (Embracing Me), we were tasked to come up with an idea and deliver it within a very tight timeframe.
We pulled out all stops on this one to go from concept to having actors harness fire and walk on water, to final delivery and premiere in just 10 days.
Similar to the deep dive thought process before Embracing Me – Jimmy wanted to avoid obvious visuals around evocative lyrics.
In this scenario, those visuals would have been someone at a work cubicle, grinding away at work (like a more dystopic take on Office Space).
Pushing further than that, Jimmy wanted to infuse experiences he had of dealing with some grief whilst the world kept spinning.
Someone expected to ‘make them wheels roll’ as their own world fills them full of fiery rage whilst drowning in isolation.
