Congratulations to Black Dog Films, Believe Media and Dilly Gent for making the list of 2013 MVPA Awards nominees! The MVPA is the annual awards celebrating the very best music video work, so we can’t say we’re too surprised to see our clients on it.
Black Dog reeled in 16 nominations, with Floria Sigismondi’s name appearing most often on the list. The director, repped by Black Dog for music videos and Believe for commercial work, earned noms spanning 12 categories, including Director of the Year for Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors.” Fellow Black Dog director Christian Larson was listed for his Sigur Ros Mystery Project video “Valtari.” Other Black Dog honorees include Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen for his Rhye video “The Fall,” Dawn Shadforth’s trippy Infinity Ink video, and Diane Martel’s too-hot-for-Youtube clip for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.”
We’re not done celebrating just yet. Believe director Anthony Mandler received seven nominations, and Wendy Morgan is honored four times for her Laura Mvula and C2C videos, also produced by Believe. And one more woo-hoo, cheers and a big HOORAY for our friend Dilly Gent, who commissioned the groundbreaking Joel Compass video “Back to Me” – earning two nominations.
Congratulations and best of luck to everyone at the MVPA Awards in LA May 30th!
