The video for Young Futura - Slide is an energetic dance song driven by a repetitive driving beat as an undertone with a smooth lyrical delivery that instills movement into your mind. The videos intention is to inspire movement in the viewer. This songs essential backbone is in the progressive simple dance movement repeated in the lyrics, ‘Move to the left, take a step back, slide to the right, slide to the right,’ the videos intention is to inspire the movement through visual inspiration, repetition and style.
This video pulls on the vision of the American wasteland with its strip malls and bowling alleys and it finds the influenced spaces inside a french satellite city space. The idea is to head out to the small town of Chartres, located 1hr west of Paris. There are two sides to small towns like this, the historic centre and the new sprawling American inspired outer cities, often taking pages from American modern strip mall architecture. These are the spaces and places the video will be set. Create a divide between the two continents and give a simple but important back drop to the main focus of the dance.
