Beauty – The Brittnees

The second music video of our band project The Brittnees, a green screen experiment with a lot of effects, costumes and real fun making it. The song is about beauty ideals, role models, what women think they should do – or are actually doing – to be liked. The idea is to illustrate this play of role that women have brought to perfection, on the one hand to seduce, on the other to manipulate, while hopelessly knowing that beauty will fade, that no-one and nothing can change this fact, that being alone is an essential experience of every human being and that there is simply nothing that can save us from decay. It is partly ironic for taking looks and beauty so seriously, but on the same hand an expression for desperation and insecurity.
