Video Days Spotlight: Rollo Jackson 18 April 2018

Rollo Jackson is a London-based director whose work spans music videos, commercial work, and documentary filmmaking.

Jackson grew up immersed in the UK’s dance music culture. His music films for James Blake, Tate Britain and Warp Records all bear the subtle traces of mid-90s escapades spent clad in Versace prints and box-fresh Reeboks and soundtracked by crackling pirate radio or booming warehouse speakers.

His short film Gang Signs & Prayer will be looped in the Gallery on Wednesday 2 May.

A visual testament to Stormzy’s life and upbringing, the film chronicles Stormzy’s inner battles and temptations as he becomes master of his own destiny. Return of the Rucksack, Bad Boys and 100 Bags, taken from Stormzy’s award winning debut studio album Gang Signs & Prayer, serve as the soundtrack to the film of the same name.

The film has also recently been nominated for a Webby Award. You can vote for Gang Signs & Prayer here.

Slimzee’s Going On Terrible will be looped in sequence with Gang Signs & Prayer on Wednesday 2 May.

Slimzee (‘Godfather of Grime’) was the co-founder of Rinse FM and DJ in the UK Garage collective ‘Pay As You Go Cartel’. Slimzee’s Going On Terrible charts his life, following his early days in pirate radio to receiving a career-threatening Asbo. Features old & new footage and interviews from fellow DJ’s & MC’s and even his own mother.

– Please do not visit the gallery if you have COVID-19 symptoms, are self-isolating, or have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus. Follow the NHS coronavirus guidelines.

– We recommend that you download the NHS COVID-19 app in advance of your visit and check in via the QR code when you arrive.

– Entry to the gallery is via the main entrance of the Bonington Building and floor markers will assist with social distancing. Please ‘check-in’ to the main building on arrival via the NHS app, and sanitise your hands.

– We recommend that face masks or coverings are worn upon entrance to the building and gallery. There are some free masks available within the building if you forget.

Contact areas in the gallery, such as doors and handrails, will be subject to cleaning throughout the day. An enhanced cleaning regime is in place across all University buildings.
Clear signage at the gallery entrance will outline the key measures we are adhering too. Please refer to these for guidance. A gallery assistant will also be on hand to help.
