Music Videos: The Experimental Sandbox

Music videos can simply be thought of as short films set to music, but it’s more than just a film score.  Music videos give directors freedom to play with storytelling and take risks in their filmmaking.  Join LA Music Video Festival winners and alumni: Chris Buongiorno, Leah McKissock, John Vallance & Chris Westlund (Nautico), as they discuss their experience directing music videos and how the work has helped them develop a unique perspective in their films and commercial work. This panel will be hosted by LA Music Video Festival and Nancy Fulton Music and Film meetup.  Writer/Producer Nancy Fulton supports 5000+ writers, producers, and performers in the LA Area through weekly meetups. The LA Music Video Festival was created for a single purpose: to celebrate the art of the music video.  LAMVF showcases bleeding-edge work being done by a new generation of musicians and filmmakers.  LAMVF represents a new generation of film festival whose audience is young, aspirational, passionate, tech-savvy and un-intimidated by micro-budgets and global distribution.  For anyone who makes music, make videos, likes music videos, be part of the movement.
