MusicVidFest returned to BFI Southbank on November 9 2016, with a full day of talks, keynotes and panel sessions for professionals working in music video and those people looking to get into it. Look out for our video round-up coming soon!
Kicking off with an interview with one of the UK’s hottest directors of the moment, Ninian Doff, the morning also included a wide-ranging keynote address by WPA’s Barnaby Laws, a closer look at the role of the cinematographer in music videos and the challenges facing producers of music videos.
Other sessions included an in-depth look at how one of the biggest videos of the year – The Chemical Brothers’ Wide Open – was made with the team behind it, the latest update on consumer viewing habits on Youtube and other platforms, and how content providers are struggling to keep pace with them, and a special insight into how artists’ feel about the process of music video creation.
