Compensation & Union Contract Details

No pay. Creative Director states: "Compensation will be made in exposure and network connections. There will be plenty of appropriate breaks, but as this music video is put on by a bunch of regular Joe's in the Austin community looking to feature other talented designers, directors, talent, and drag queens, we are looking to make a statement, not a profit. While food may be provided during filming if times are longer than expected, the exposure provided by the producing individuals is all the compensation we can afford to provide for participants, as well as the possibility of other future gigs and networking options."

SYNOPSIS

"A rejected young boy witnesses a drag show and heavily identifies with the performer, and desiring to do drag himself in hopes of 'fitting in' and 'being himself,' he attempts to show up to the after party in drag and try to impress the performer. When he arrives at the party, the performer is 'beating down' on another performer, and as he enters gains attention and reverence from the party-goers. A surprise third drop ensues, dancers and drag alike are combating in retro lighting and glow-in-the-dark paint as he joins the beat down and almost immediately takes on the personas of a diva to the two performers facing off. The video ends with the two original drags being ridden off and the new performer as the victor. The entire video switches between a scene at the after party and a studio set up as a sumo ring. To keep the video from being graphic and rather have the viewers focusing on how this 'nobody' learns from his peers and took a chance, the perceived beat downs will be staged with dance moves and artistic shots of the performers in the sumo ring with paint, the dancers with drums, and a multitude of other artistic shots."
