Love Games :: Tone Royal And DEVMO Collaborate With Dynasty Wells-Union On Unforgettable Video For ‘Daily’

While not the first video I’ve seen made entirely of Lego‘s, I have to say that Tone Royal and DEVMO‘s video for Daily, created after a month of painstaking work by director Dynasty Wells-Union, is an achievement nonetheless.  The narrative presented mirrors that of the song, and the perspective switch (and style switch) used to convey point of view (and time of events, respectively) is extremely simple but effective.  Tone gives an extremely heartfelt performance, but manages to avoid the trappings of a one-sided story by providing DEVMO the opportunity to give the other side, allowing both to come to a loving middle ground after seeing the greater picture of good and bad.  This one will definitely get some year-end recognition, but don’t wait until then to check it out, as it deserves to go viral right now.

Big Pictures :: Tone Royal’s Amazing ‘Late’ Music Video Now Streaming

If it’s not common knowledge by now that movie references are my soft spot, it should be apparently so in the wake of this share.  Tone Royal, based out of San Antonio, decided to go ahead and blow my mind with the release of his music video for Late.  The first single from the upcoming EP of the same name, Tone‘s video goes out of it’s way to immerse us up to our eyeballs in both famous and obscure movie reference interactions.  The animation hearkens back to the transition period between Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, and the choices are pitch perfect.  It goes without question that the song is a banger as well, making all of the elements hold one another up in a beautiful bit of harmony.  This one comes highly recommended, so definitely hit those like, share and subscribe buttons!
