Media Collective Studio, the people behind the Filmmakers Club, sometimes participate in the production of some of the projects that our members propose to us. This time we decided to join the Australian artist Melanie Brennan in the production of her new song “Oh, Coal!”, which tries to draw people’s attention to the well known problem of the use of fossil fuels in Australia and its effects on climate change.
If you are curious about how a music video is produced and are keen to participate as an extra, keep reading because this might be of interest to you.

About the song:
It’s about how certain world leaders continue to support the fossil fuel economy even though the majority of us are pro renewable energies and very concerned about the consequences for climate change if we continue down the ‘business as usual’ path. It shows the current dialogue between politicians and citizens done in a ‘musical’ style with three main acts. The music video has real potential to go viral, as this is such a hot topic right now on a global scale!
For more details, contact Melanie Brennan: firstname.lastname@example.org with a headshot or showreel if you have one (this is to see which role will suit you best).
