Director Jason Beattie Starts The Music Video Mixtape of Unused Ideas

Most directors I know do more writing than directing — pitching "treatments" for every video soliciation that comes their way, hoping their idea piques some interest and get them the gig.

Alas, most of these videos never get past the treatment stage, resulting in a backlog of many ideas.

Director Jason Beattie has decided that his ideas don't need to sit in a folder buried deep on a hard drive, deciding to release a new batch of unaccepted video ides every single week.

Week One is out today and you can take it as an exercise of What If, a journey through good ideas that couldn't find a good fit, or, a way for a director to show creativity even when they don't get the jobs.
