Sony Music looking to work with UK-based director for up and coming pop/rock artist's project

[COMMISSIONER], part of Sony Music, is looking to connect with new music video directors unfamiliar to them.

[ARTIST] is a new young female pop/rock artist, and we're looking for someone hungry and creative that wants to work closely with the artist.

Ideally, we would like to capture 3 videos, potentially press photos, and additional content during the shoots. 

The EP is called [TITLE] and comments on [ARTIST] mental health and inner demons.

The running theme throughout this next release is based around a concept - all centring back to talking points of sexuality, mental health & teenage angst.

The overall visual of the EP needs to be cohesive. A storyline that isn't too obvious but not too far-fetched from each other.

Some of the ideas might be too far fetched to do within our budget, but we would love to hear and see the directors take on it all.

We'd like to capture as many videos in one day as possible.


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.


At the initial interest phase of the application process for a video brief, please only apply with:

  • Attach recent examples of videos you have directed or worked on via Projects.
  • A short, friendly written introduction about you, your experience and style Pro briefs only
  • Links to your showreel, so the commissioner can see the best of your work Pro briefs only

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.
