One thing I’ll always love in a film is a good long take. Goodfellas, Children of Men and Boogie Nights are just a few films with epic long takes that show you events unfolding from the character’s perspective. They aren’t always necessary but they are always very cool.
This video was filmed in one long take, with picture and audio recorded at the same time. Nyle takes Weezy’s song “Let the Beat Build” and uses the concept brilliantly to create a video that’s better than anything you’ll see on the music channels. Extra points for the drummer looking like Emmanuel Eboue, anything that reminds me of Eboue wins.
