Henry Steinway AKA RL Grime is an American producer of hip-hop, trap, grime and bass music, and member of the Los Angeles collective WeDidIt. In 2012, he teamed up with producer Salva for an explosively popular remix of Kanye West’s ‘Mercy‘.
Sprinkle Lab produced a music video for RL Grime‘s track ‘Heard Me’, the single off his 2013 ‘High Beams‘ EP.
Director Brandon Tauszik wrote a treatment revolving around his real life father, who is a ventriloquist, magician, and juggler in Florida. The video reveals a mind battle taking place in a foreign land between master & puppet. Pandemonium ensues.
The footage was captured in Sprinkle Lab’s Oakland studio at 480fps slow motion. After the edit was locked, the footage was sent to Sprinkle Lab’s animation partners The Great Nordic Sword Fights. They applied a thick layer of analog special sauce to the video.
