We are producing a music video for the song "Over and Out" by The Commonwealth, a Massachusetts based indie rock band, and are in need of finishing funds!

Our video will be a short narrative starring two professional actors, inter-cut with footage of the band. The result will be an interesting loose double narrative.

We will shoot at various locations throughout New York City, including Coney Island and Williamsburg in Brooklyn, as well as the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

As with any music video, this project requires an incredibly high shooting ratio.

The Director and Director of Photography have worked together extensively, ensuring a cohesive and consistent style.

The music video will have an aesthetic heavily influenced by the French New Wave, 80s B movies, and modern independent cinema.

Above is a teaser of what we have already shot, which is roughly 50% of all necessary shooting.

The money donated will go towards the final shoots and all post-production.

Thanks for your help and support!
