We DARE you not to surrender to your feelings watching this video. Double DOG DARE!
What's that? Oh, no, nothing — there's some crap in our eyes, both of them, that's why they're watering. We're fine. No, we're fine. Maybe we were cutting onions or something. Just look away. Look away!
We dare you not to surrender to all of the feels while watching Brick + Mortar's new video for its powerful single "Hollow Tune" — a work filmed and produced by the local camera wizards in Blurred Pictures. It's a heavy load to bear, but a necessary story to tell still in a day where our neighbors are fighting for equal treatment as humans.
"We trashed three full scripts in the process of finding the story for the 'Hollow Tune' video," says writer and director Rosco Guerrero. "Ultimately, it was comments from people stating how the song had changed their lives or helped them get through tough times, how this piece of music had a profound effect on their very existence. The words 'you're not alone' became so central. I knew we had to create a story representing characters that are underrepresented, and in turn speak to all people underrepresented. People that may be struggling to find or accept their identity or circumstances. We knew we had to send a message to all people … That they are not alone."
