Video Hits:: Stuey Kubrick Edition

Stuey Kubrick

I’m going to admit right out of the box that I know very little about the man known as Stuey Kubrick, other than the Vancouverite has also done some production under the name Stu-Ray, but I have to think he is the busiest video director in Canada right now. I have no facts to back that up other than his Vimeo page, which has a crap-ton of his videos on it, and, in sorting through our stockpiled videos to put-together this week’s edition of the hill Video Hits, I came across at least 4 Stuey-directed videos that we’ve been sent in the last week or so.

 

So then, all that leads to our first ever director-based edition of the Video Hits, which features the newest video from Vancouver’s Pigeon Hole leading off. Light Show features D-Sisive, and when you combine the fact that I loved Pigeon Hole’s album, with the fact that we have always posted any and all D-Sis material, then this is a natural fit. Plus it’s just a great vid, with Dusty & Marmalade from PH and D-Sis donning boxing gloves and wandering around Stuey’s trademark gritty black and white cityscape shots. There’s more Vancouver grittiness on show in Stuey’s vid for TO’s Angerville, who traveled west to hook up with Stu and Van MC’s Evil Ebenezer & Snak The Ripper for a remix of their track Sin City. Another really well done vid that fits the song perfectly and also fills me with a desire to stay out of any and all Vancouver alleyways.

 

On the opposite side of the spectrum, we have the video for Hollywood Square by Van duo The Trillionaire$ (Evil Ebenezer & Metty The Dertmerchant). It still features the collection of cityscape shots and oddball characters that you can find in plenty of Stuey’s other vids, but this one is shot in the glorious California sunshine, which is a welcome sight right about now.

 

To finish up, we’ll add a 4th bonus video to show a different, less hip hop side to Stuey’s work. Matt Shindruk records under the name Crtcl Mas, and the other day he sent us the link to the video for his new song Disappeared Like So Many Dreams. Lo and behold the dreamy spaceman video is done by Stuey Kubrick, and the song, while on the exterior appearing to be a radio ready singer songwriter jam, has struck a chord with me somehow and I think I’ve watched the video 3 or 4 times now. Enjoy.

Great article on some great talent. I have loved all of Stuey’s work both as an avid Canadian Hip Hop fan and as a visual artist.
