Rupert Bryan, co-director of the Ibiza Music Video Festival and the Awards says, “The music video industry has long produced some of the most exciting creative work both visually and technically that reaches audiences worldwide. As well as creating a valuable part of an artist’s repertoire, many music videos directors and key creatives on their crews go on to work in the commercials, documentary and feature film industries. “Ibiza will be a wonderful launchpad for the first music video festival and the awards as it offers great production facilities and locations for making music videos as well as being renowned as the dance capital of the world. The enthusiasm and ideas for this one-day inaugural festival has been overwhelming and we are already considering building in more days for the next one.”
