Sometimes it’s the simple things that work best. This video for Brighton based rapper Ocean Wisdom mixes a live-action walk around the city with touches of animation used just as an accent.

Directed by Lucie Beecham, we find ourselves in a life-size version of snakes and ladders created by animator Craig Dolan.

Beecham explains “I felt using the hand drawn elements alongside the gritty black and white live action was the best way to blend Ocean’s grime style with a game that provokes childhood nostalgia.”
