@RichardIIIrd thank you kindly :)
Last year’s MK MVP winners sure made good use of the money that was given to them to make epic music videos.
So who’ll be this year’s Tristan Holmes?
Well, the talent is abundant amongst the winners so my only request is that they don’t doubt themselves and screw up.
When it came to choosing which videos were to be commissioned, the MK MVP judging panel took band/artist positioning, song choice, visual treatment of the proposed video and the overall concept into consideration.
These are the Top 12 bands that they settled on:
- aKING, Jezebel to be produced by Supra Familias
- Bicycle Thief, Goodbye Ian Curtis to be produced by Motion City Films
- Die Skynmaagde, Die Kommunis Sokkie to be produced by Sound Surgeons CC
- Die Tuin Dwergies, Blou Gras to be produced by VPH Films
- Gazelle, Val Van Die Ryk to be produced by 187 Pictures
- Jack Parow, Afrikaans is Dood to be produced by Little Big Productions
- Jakkals, RumTrifle to be produced by Crave Pictures
- P.H. Fat, Business Business Crash to be produced by CAB
- Shortstraw, Waterworks to be produced by Mustard Post Production
- Spoegwolf, Somersetwes to be produced by The Suits
- The Plastics, Best Pretenders to be produced by Little Big Productions
- Van Coke Kartel, Buitenkant to be produced by Groundglass
The next few weeks will see MK following the progress of all the artists and their music videos. And you can be damn sure that I will be too. In fact, I might gate-crash a set or two to see what the how the production companies are getting on.
Now I’m going to incredibly biased and say that all the other videos can suck it – Riordan Allen’s PHfat video for ‘Business Business Crash’ is going to be the bayste. But he is my buddy. And therefore I’m biased. And that would just be wrong.
Besides, I’m all for giving other bitches a chance to prove their worth. I’m especially looking forward to seeing what 187 Pictures does with Gazelle’s video.
Oh and MK powers-that-be, if you’re reading this, how about having the screening down in Cape Town this year? I mean, only 10 out of 12 of this year’s bands are from the Mother City.
All 12 music videos will be premiered exclusively on MK in November.
