Tre aka Slim Kid and Fat Lip are half of the iconic hip-hop group The Pharcyde. The Pharcyde are currently on their first appearances in over a decade, headlining as special guest on the Rock The Bells tour with Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, De La Soul and many more.
The “Ay Yo My Man” video is featured on the main stage in between performances during this 12 city, 50,000 person per venue tour this summer!!
This music video directed by Little Red Robot features a cool look of using all neon tube art designs assembled in 3D then composited into the live-action interacting with Tre and Fat Lip.
The music video was shot all in HD in Los Angeles with heavy post production carried out in LRR San Fransisco and London studios involving custom developed neon shaders in Maya and fully composited in HD in Nuke, all on a tight schedule and budget. This video has a nice summertime feel with the night life look of neon colors and the good vibe sounds of “Ay Yo My Man.”
