Luke Bather - 21st Dec 2016

Dan Emmerson and DoP Deepa Keshvala team up for an excellent visual portrait shot on 16mm for Skream.

Following South London shuffling icon Mr. Shapes, the video is as much a portrait of a cultural movement as it is a portrait of a local legend. The mixture of candid shots in with the more staged compositions helps to show both the legend and the man.


"I spent a day and night shooting Kerry Boyd aka Mr. Shapes or Mad Kezza, Brockley's finest shuffling don. The idea is a pretty simple one, but I really feel we got something honest and real out of it, which can be rare.

"What could have been just another 'subculture' video feels a lot more than that. Kezza is a very interesting guy, and I feel like this is a small insight into his life, which to date has been a turbulent one. Deepa Keshvala our DOP smashed it and shot some beautiful stuff on 16mm, a winning combo!"
