Katy B 'Got Paid' by Emile Rafael3Katy B 'Got Paid' by Emile Rafael2Emile Rafael takes us on a trip around night-time London in this cool stop-motion extravaganza to Katy B's Got Paid single. Using literally thousands of shots in an exhaustive sequence, Emile contemplates the staccato soundtrack perfectly. “I wanted to celebrate London and its current and vibrant night-life in this video" explains Emile. "I was after a raw and real feel, which is why I decided to do it all in stills, mostly shot on 35mm and 120mm. It was great being back shooting on film again, even in this capacity. "It was great fun, but it wasn’t easy. Over 10,000 stills later my hat goes off to Chris Roebuck at Speade who was able to sort through all the footage in the edit and still be able to make our tight deadline." Emile will be putting up a selection of the images used in the video (over 2000 in total) on his blog.
