Guy Fantastico

OTP recently had the incredible chance to work with enigmatic Costa Rican superstar Guy Fantastico on a music video for his song “You Were My Baby, I Was Your Fool.” ¬†For the video, we decided to place Guy in the radioactive climax of 1984’s Repo Man, essentially re-casting Emilio Estevez’ character as a star-crossed lover lamenting a broken heart. The contrast of the bizarre, surreal energy of the ending scene with Guy’s melancholy expression proved to be exceptionally delicious, especially against the backdrop of Alex Cox’s glowing green color palette. We matched lighting and brought an array of simple camera tricks (quite literally smoke and mirrors) to create the sensation of a simple and seamless narrative.
