Saul Williams video concept

Saul asked me to come up with a treatment for his video convict colony. Rather than writing it out I just edited this piece together, as I concieved of a remake of Jesus Christ superstar with Saul in the role of Judas.  The lipsync is off, its just for reference. Use your imagination of what could have been.

He had issues with the imagery of hanging himself at the end so went with another director. This is what eventually came out.

I dunno, which would have  you choosen?

James Spooner made this video on Spec.
