Synopsis:

The Suffering” by 857 is an upbeat hip-hop/rock collaboration that describes challenges faced when certain individuals experience periods of extreme mental suffering.  The hip-hop group is currently seeking one or a few female(s) who can visually reflect the dark mood and tone of the video.  It would also be great if they owned any gothic styled attire as well.  We are specifically looking for a dark-haired, fairly pale-pigmented female(s) to participate in various scenes.  A woman baring a resemblance to Paige from the WWE would be right on the money.

Video participation will range from simply appearing alongside the artists to minimal interaction with video props.  Applicants must be 21 and over to apply.

To be considered for the video, please send a resume and headshot to comments@857music.com.  Thanks for your time!

Feel free to post this on social media and send to your friends.
