Skate art meets psychological horror in this collaborative film. Launching on the Arts Council’s online platform, boutique deck designers The Skateroom partner with photographer Roger Ballen for a monochrome fever dream.

Fans of Die Antwoord will recognise Ballen’s severe palette. The film splices images from the duo’s 'I Fink U Freeky’ promo with a warehouse raid. Ocular close-ups and sketchy animation heighten the uncanny vibe.

Luckily, art-conscious skaters won’t have to navigate this Saw-esque labyrinth themselves - Ballen fans can visit the studio’s website instead.

What a cracking bit of work. Well done.
