Canadian rap artist Tona teamed up with filmmaker Ikenna Cesar Amaechi for a second time to present this visual opus for "Barcelona". As if the cold shoot for Blue Shield, their previous effort, wasn't enough of a lesson, the crew got together to shoot this video on yet another cool Toronto Winter morning. The video was shot in The Junction, a nesting haven for artists, just outside the heart of the city. Ikenna mixed it up with the visuals on this project as frames bounced from neo-realism to monochromatic animation as Tona threw his charismatic cadence into the camera, line after line. One of a kind!
Blue Shield is a promotional short film project shining the flashlight on the relationship between law enforcement and the community they've sworn to protect.

Directed by Ikenna Cesar Amaechi, edited by Nick Ginsberg & Ikenna Cesar Amaechi.
Tona and Ikenna have been friends since they were teenagers so it was only natural for them to collaborate on this project. On the morning of the shoot, the temperature was -25 Celsius, but the whole crew braved through the bone chilling winds and bitter cold to put together a visual everyone was proud of.
