Tino Kamal: “VIP” - 3 mins 12s

Model-turned-rapper Tino Kamal's latest promo has a sci-fi vibe which relies on the heavily-tattooed artist's visage remaining distinctive through several layers of VFX... which, indeed, it does.

Performing in what initially appears to be a smoke-filled void, a digital version of Kamal acts as a computer-generated chameleon - one moment rippling with golden body armour, the next glowing under blacklight or burning from the inside out.

Impeccable VFX work makes this an unexpectedly gripping watch, commanding far more attention than a man performing in a dark room would usually muster. Moody and eye-catching all at the same time.
