PRETTYBIRD’s Bradley & Pablo have directed a new music video for “Find U Again”, the new Mark Ronson track featuring Camila Cabello, set in a Wild Western frontier town of the future. The video follows the story of a bad guy turned good, a suave bounty hunter (Mark Ronson) who saves a glamorous city girl on the run (Camila Cabello).

The stunning 4-minute film was shot over 2 days in California, and moves between monochrome and colour, featuring cinematic imagery of the Californian desert and a nightclub interior, which is infused with a futuristic Wild West vibe. The nightclub interior was filmed at a top-secret location in the heart of Hollywood.

Mark Ronson takes on the character of a Bounty Hunter trying to find Camilla Cabello in ‘Club Heartbreak’, a fictional club where Cabello is filmed dancing in scenes reminiscent of Bob Fosse’s ‘Cabaret’.

Bradley & Pablo’s film mixes influences from Film Noir to Classic Western movies. Ronson cruises down the wide-open roads of the Mojave Desert in an open top Cadillac, in pursuit of Cabello, while three Femme Fatale Bounty Hunters join the search. The new track is from Mark Ronson’s new album “Late Night Feelings” on the Sony Music label.

Bradley & Pablo commented: “The race is on as four bounty hunters speed through scorched American desert roads to find her as she performs at a mysterious club filled with heartbroken souls. The video reimagines familiar cinematic narratives and genres with contemporary characters, progressive styling and performance from one of the worlds biggest pop stars.”

ABOUT BRADLEY & PABLO

Bradley & Pablo formed a creative partnership in London during art school at Central Saint Martins and Chelsea College of Art in 2012. They quickly established a strong signature style marked by experimental digital animation, imagining intricate conceptual worlds that reinforce a critical awareness of mass culture and building a voice that speaks to their millennial peers.

The boys turned their attention to music videos in 2015, when their first promo for XL Records – ‘Hey QT’ (voted best music video of 2015 on FACT and Crack Magazine) received widespread critical acclaim and lead to a long history of collaboration with the game-changing PC Music collective and Charli XCX. They have since become highly sought out by major record labels and artists alike, producing works for the likes of Dua Lipa, Kanye West, Rosalia, Frank Ocean, Camilla Cabello, Little Mix and Mark Ronson.

Their video ‘Motor Sport’ for Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B broke the internet with Nicki’s performance trending on Twitter and coverage from MTV to Billboard via Pitchfork and Vogue reaching over 100 million views in one month. It went on to be nominated for the prestigious Coca Cola Viewers choice award at the BET awards in 2018. Their work in the music industry has not gone unnoticed in the commercial world either. In 2018 Bradley and Pablo were commissioned by Pepsi and UEFA for a series of major televised spots to advertise the Champions League Final with double Brit award winning megastar Dua Lipa.
