Producers would like me to make sure that everyone is aware of the content of this shoot and is comfortable with the subject matter. Below is a brief description:
The chorus hits and Thomas meets his friend Markus. Markus puts on a “skull” facemask. Thomas puts on a facemask with a big ‘Joker’ smile. The two turn the corner and step into a protest unfolding on the streets. Scattered groups of people walk through smoke and light as the streets appear filled with people marching against the establishment. Thomas and Markus join the stand off as people scream across the streets – toward the riot police stretching across the road. Toby walks down the street hitting his rap with intensity and passion – as people continue to bump into him, running away from the protest. Over his shoulder, we see the riot unfolding down the street. Across the line of policemen we see Matt standing in his riot gear. His face falls ashen as he sees Nate falling to the ground. This violence breaks his heart. He breaks
ranks and drops his riot gear. As Matt tends to Nate, Thomas runs up on them both. Thomas raises a pipe he has in his hand – threatening to hit Matt. But Nate reaches his arm up to protect Matt – stopping Thomas.
The camera captures the compassion and love in Nate’s eyes, despite the pain he feels. As the video draws to a close, we see Nate looking upward as he holds Matt and Thomas together under his arms. Only faith and action can heal the troubles of our world and Nate symbolizes that love.
