Project Description

Anti-Everything is a punk rock band from Trinidad and Tobago.
We would like an independent video producer to produce a two minute long music video for the song 'Everyday Citizen' (Length - 00:02:00).

The entire production process would be from conceptualizing, treatment, animation and editing would be in the hands of the producer. The producer is urged to feel free to be creative in whatever way they may choose to interpret the song, though the key themes of the song are very evident if you read the lyrics below.

The proposed style is original after effects animation, though the producer can feel free to use additional stock footage in addition. We will send some performance footage which can aslo be used in the edit.

We know that our budget is small, but we hope that we can ideally find a freelance producer here who is also part of the punk rock culture and would be willing to assist. We also want to stress that the producer would have significant creative flexibility and that we would trust their discretion. If all goes well, we hope to establish a long term relationship in which we can do many other projects together in the future (this is why someone into punk rock would be ideal!)

For a reference of the type of aesthetic we are aiming for, you can check out the following videos:

Anti-Flag - Death of a Nation - [url removed, login to view]

Please note that any references to political or social issues should be generic or global, and we do not want to use any US-specific social/political commentary.

Thank you for your consideration!


SONG LYRICS: New Generation

Son ever since you were young, your father told you “Boy you owe your country!”
But now that you’ve grown up you realize that the state doesn’t care about you
Give ever since you were young, your mother told you to respect authority
But now that you’ve grown up you know that you answer to no one but yourself

So make way for the New Generation (redefining revolution)
Make way for the New Generation (youth culture as a social movement)

Because I don’t need you to tell me how to act, what to think
What to do, when to breath, how to live my life; because I choose my own path

Girl ever since you were young, your parents told you “Girl you know your destiny!”
Go to school and get a job, work from eight to four for the rest of your life now
Pay your income tax and cooperate pension plans for retirement
Because employment is your only duty
But now that you’ve grown up you know that your life and your labour belong to you

Youth culture – as a social movement
Only the youth of our nation can fight to take the power back

Because we don’t need you to tell us how to act, what to think, what to do, when to breath
Define our own destiny; because we choose our own path in life, love
Freedom, justice and equality for all

Ever since you were a child you were classified and prescribed a social identity
But there’s no escape from the direction you take and the decisions you make
So consider every choice very wisely
Burning down all the prejudice, and the sexist racists; never compromise your individuality
So now that you’ve grown up you know that your future and your culture is defined by you

So make way for the New Generation (redefining revolution)
Make way for the New Generation (arts and culture as an intellectual movement)
