Music and video are the key drivers of content in the modern, plugged-in world, and predictions show that we are due to devour more and more over the coming years as the tentacles of the world wide web become more and more ingrained in the way we interact with both. So what does the future hold for the music video as a form? Is the golden ‘MTV Generation’ but a distant memory? Has the form become cheapened by the sheer volume of film now available at the click of the button? Are music videos becoming purely marketing tools rather than a treasured and respected medium? Has YouTube actually killed the traditional video star?
Bringing together three current, Liverpool-based filmmakers, the YouTube killed the Video Star event aims to dissect these questions and more in a dynamic discussion event.
Lee Isserow has been working in the film and TV industry for a number of years, and has a healthy back catalogue of work that stretches from TV advertising to music video. Having directed his first music video for a friend’s band in 2001, Lee has built up an extensive background of expertise in cinematography, animation and visual effects, and direction. Lee has produced music videos for Arrows Of love, Howard Be Thy Name and The Helmholtz Resonators among others.
Jack Whiteley spent three years doing a practical filmmaking degree – ‘Contemporary Film & Video’ – at Manchester Metropolitan University, and the three years spent creating short films was a great grounding for him in the art of film. He has since developed an impressive body of short film work with a distinct style, documenting many of the events undertaken by The Kazimier. He followed up his first music video – Stealing Sheep’s I Am The Rain – with further videos for Dan Croll, Wave Machines, and a return to working with Stealing Sheep on the epic production of their Rearrange music video.
Unfortunately Mike Isted has had to drop out of the event, a replacement for him will be announced as soon as possible.
