The project is a music video for the local Brisbane band Creekwood. The song itself conveys strong themes of loss, grief and losing someone no matter the lengths and efforts you go to. The narrative for the clip will follow a very similar structure.
Treatment for the clip
A woman with a rough life behind her stands in front of a mirror. Covered head to toe with tattoos and all they see in the mirror anymore is anger, mistakes and regret. They look out the window at the city and see a reflection of themselves in what the city has become. They want to start anew, in their anger and haste they start to scrub at their skin, pull at their tattoos and finally trying to scrape them off with a razor blade. Their resistance is futile and the story moves into the streets below. She walks through the streets of the city that so closely resembles her aged self. As she walks she sees people making the same mistakes she has done, tattoos, hookers and crack heads yelling at each other. People turn towards her and tries to invite her over. She tries to ignore them before she finally stops, ahead of her she sees a tree in the middle of the street, she looks left at the at the people on the street then right towards the trees, left again before finally she begins to walk towards the tree. As she does so she looks down at her hand, a raindrop lands and smudges her tattoo. She begins to pick up her pace and the heavens open up, rain begins to pore down, her tattoos and past begin to wash off her. She breaks into a sprint before stopping a metre from the tree and he looks up, she lifts her hands in the air and the rain stops.
We are looking for someone either with or without tattoos.
