The Prodigy - Need Some1 music video


Director: Paco Raterta
Producer: Maurizio Von Trapp

Directed by Filipino filmmaker Paco Raterta, the visual was shot entirely in the Philippines. Most of the scenes were set in the slum areas of Manila which highlighted poverty and violence in the country. 

The music video stars Miguel and Chiko Hernandez of the Filipino psycho-tropical duo The Hernandez Brothers. 

"Paco's style stood out and punched me in the face: just so raw and original-looking, I knew he was the man for us," Howlett said of the clip. "The finished video has such violent edge and style and looks like nothing else we have seen — to us it's only worth doing a video if you can make something original and exciting, which this is."

Paco Raterta grew up in a small fisherman town in the Philippines, won a scholarship at the International Academy of Film and Television in Cebu, after which he followed a career in editing, working on commercials for top level brands such as Pepsi, Coca-Cola and Samsung. Paco moved on to directing as he started out a longstanding relationship with renowned artist David Choe, with whom he is currently working on an experimental ongoing project that mixes art, filmmaking and music.
