some info from FL's twitter:
our film was shot in Nickerson Gardens,on beautiful 35mm. We were lucky to shoot there as they don't really let in the uninvited. blessed
i also remember reading somewhere (spin? twitter?) that the ambulance and police helicopter just happened to be there the day of shooting... so depressing. so beautiful.

The main link is to an embedded video, with HQ pre-set. I couldn't get the video to play without unblocking various sites, and then when I did see it, I realized it was just an embedded YouTube video. You can change the quality up to 1080p on the video if you like.

Also, the album by FlyLo is very inspired by Dilla. Lovely video, wonderful album, from what I've heard.

The film is beautiful by the way, and I think a testament to what 'music videos' or film with music can be and are becoming.
