Today’s blog post is Part 3 of a 4 part series where I am giving you a preview of the actual script we’ll be using to shoot my upcoming music video Hedonist.
Hedonist the music video has been a huge undertaking. As pleased as I am with my last music video Lapdance Romance, my goal is to make Lapdance Romance look like and idiot compared to Hedonist. Hedonist is going to have 4 sets with separate action sequences that relate the overall concept of the song visually. I’ve decided to post the scripts I’ve written for each set in a 4 part series.
In my first post of this series I revealed the script for The Psychiatrist’s Office of the Mind’s Eye. It’ lays down the premise and overall concept for the video.
The the second of the sets is what I’ve called The Padded Cell of Hedonism. The set is where my character goes to escape the pain of being abused, and is a visual metaphor for my character’s relationship with hedonism. Hedonism is portrayed as a physical being who rules the world inside the cell and ultimately seduces my character to over indulge in substance use until she becomes an addict.
The Padded Cell of Terror and Art Therapy
This set is all about my character “The Patient” coming to the grim realization that she is an addict trapped in a vicious cycle of domestic abuse and substance abuse.

As she’s painting the last line of the song, two nurses enter. The nurses’ job is to prevent the patient from expressing herself so they jump on top of her. One nurse holds the patient down as the other nurse injects the patient’s neck with a sedative. The patient now catatonic and complaint allows the nurses to straight jacket her. The nurses lay her down on her back and place a metal gag into her mouth to pry it open. They want to ensure that the patient is never able to express herself again so they pour an entire bottle of liquid suspension type medication down her throat and then shove an entire bottle of pills down her throat.
