On The Cusp, Longlist - Music Video

Wesley Joseph ft. Jorja Smith, Patience

Wesley Joseph

Stink Films

"This first video with Stink was a game changer in terms of facilitation and pushing boundaries." - Wesley Joseph Shot with an Alexa Mini over two days in Surrey; Wesley and Jorja ride through their hometown in a white vintage Mercedes. Throughout their drive they look out of the window, where they're shown a catalogue of hyper real, humanist scenes. Distracted by the visions they see, they're distracted and get into a car crash. In the aftermath of the wreck, both artists perform in the carnage of the accident and then into a metaphorical 'heaven like' space. The dramatic sub narratives that they saw earlier outside the car come to an emotive conclusion at the end. Focusing on the themes of life and death, love, pain, resilience, fight, hope, joy, sadness and awe; Patience captures real raw human emotion.

Wesley Joseph is a Birmingham-born British songwriter, producer and filmmaker based in London. He has always embraced a DIY mentality. Whilst moving to London in 2016 to study film he also started making beats on his laptop, converting his bedroom into a makeshift studio.
