UK-based music video director? This brief is to collaborate on a new promo with an emerging R&B artist

Talent management company [COMMISSIONER] wants to connect with a creative to make the music video for [ARTIST] new single.

It is an unreleased song from the emerging UK R&B artist.

The song is about confessing your love to someone and wanting to see them soon to reconnect and relive all the special moments they feel when together.

The song's vibe is best described as being within a sunny summer place, and they want to bathe in that warmth and feeling of being in love.
It’s a cute, light-hearted song with a catchy rhythm, and the song's message is to contact your loved ones and let them know that you want to see them soon.

The video should pay homage to this but also remain artistic and in line with [ARTIST] previous style videos. We want to incorporate VHS, camcorder and Tumblr aesthetics within the treatment/video.


This is a location-specific brief and only applicants based in, or with the ability to travel to, Manchester or London 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.

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.
