Mackenzie O’Brien – “Anything Other Than This”

Filmed in Southern Wisconsin, This video reflects the dilemma of “stuckness” and feeling trapped in an unrewarding lifestyle. It reflects movement from a dead end job to feelings of freedom in open spaces as the young woman (mackenzie) begins to experience her true self. The backdrop of a motel in a 1950s style replaced by styles from the 1970s reflect the young woman’s emergence from a traditional role of serving to a more modern expressive role as a woman in charge of her own life.
