Punk inspired and entertaining performance-based music video to be shot in the UK

[COMMISSIONER] want to connect with a director to create a music video for [ARTIST].

We want it mostly performance-based, with cutaways of cool dynamic images and video scenes – it needs to be energetic, lairy, excessive, chaotic & flashy.

It must portray the grittiness of the track – so a punkier, more mature edge would be cool, keeping it entertaining and striking.

The lighting should be dark & bold with dynamic colours (reds, dark blues, dark purples, flash strobes, etc).

A cool environment (warehouse space, industrial, abandoned station lol or just a well-curated studio or bedroom vibe – but we need space to perform and move).

The styling should be almost punk-inspired, sharp silhouettes, cropped tailored suits, bold and stylish but still classic and effortless and connect the band together. With other outfits being used in the cutaways/non- performance scenes etc. It should feel slightly excessive with alternative and bold makeup, cool accessories and aesthetics. 


This is a location-specific brief and only applicants based in, or with the ability to travel to, United Kingdom will be considered for this opportunity.

We Direct Music Videos

In line with We Direct Music Videos' guidelines, CC does not allow free pitching and applicants are not expected to submit any treatments at the pre-commission stage of the briefing process.

Our goal is to push for improvements in the music video process to be more respectful, transparent, and minimize free work on behalf of the thousands of music video directors our organization represents. Find out more

This fairer process is designed to ensure that commissioners receive a sufficient amount of creative options to select from, while reducing the time directors spend pitching.

Therefore we limit the number of shortlisted directors invited to complete a treatment to a maximum of five.

Once you have applied to this brief, you will be notified after the application deadline whether you have been shortlisted to progress to the next phase.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a treatment, which typically consists of a written outline of the video concept and how it will be executed plus images and reference videos, submitted as a PDF.
