Bridget Kelly - Not Afraid

After a motivational BK intro about resilience, the cinematic clip tells the story of a woman steered towards ballet. Instead of following that path, she secretly pursues her passion to box. Meanwhile, the New York songstress sings about “growing pains” and why she’s not afraid to keep striving.

Director Statement

This video is a story of a young girl overcoming her fears and following her dreaming despite her mothers dismay. Bridget Kelly is the artist of the song “Afraid” which empowered my visual for the video. I believe this song is the story of my current situation which is why I’m the perfect director to shoot the video. I just moved cross country with my family to follow my dream, so this song is my story, and I have the artistic vision to carry out the visual.
