Kastle Face

A romance themed music video by hip-hop artist Uriel J. Winfree III.
5/5

Review

Directed by Meli G and Uriel J. Winfree III, from a script by Winfree, ‘Kastle Face’ is an extended music video featuring tracks from the hip-hop album ‘Kastle Face’ by Uriel J. Winfree III. The film showcases the songs ‘Symptoms’, ‘Motives’, ‘Consequences’, and ‘Killer for My Love’. The narrative delves into themes of romance, relationships, abuse, jealousy and criminality. Sherelle Lewis leads the cast as Phenox, with Winfree as Kastle Face. Roderick World Harris Jr completed the cast as Ghost – the ruthless ex of Phenox.

The 11-minute video opens with Phenox’s victorious escape from her abusive partner – retreating to an opulent beachside hotel. Upon check-in Phenox is introduced to the bell-boy attendant (Kastle Face), portrayed by Winfree. The narrative follows their ascending romance and flirtation, despite Phenox’s unpleasant flashbacks. At the mid-way point, their romance is threatened with the arrival of the ex-boyfriend. The short is constructed with no character dialogue.

Meli G and Uriel J. Winfree III have created a stalwart video with captivating imagery throughout. ‘Kastle Face’ is an exemplary showcase of the aforementioned tracks, tied together with a gripping narrative that will keep viewers engaged and enthralled. Sharelle Lewis’ performance is alluring from the offset – a commendable portrayal. Cinematography, lighting, production design and post-production are of a first-class professional standard. High praise to Uriel J. Winfree III for raising an important subject matter, delivered with a catchy musicality and a stellar videography. Highly recommended viewing.
