Lana Del Ray - Born to Die Music Video

user
Perhaps it’s because of her stunning retro Hollywood face or her eerily spellbinding voice, but Lana Del Rey (aka Lizzie Grant) has arrived. Her first album, Born To Die, was recently released in late January and consists of 12 “Hollywood Sadcore” style tracks: tales of dark yet beautifully twisted love stories. The single of the album, Born to Die, recounts a relationship that is far from perfect yet eternally addictive, made even more dramatic by the haunting and emoti...

The alternative birth of the Music Video

user
By Robert Barry In April 2005, less than a year before shooting their own debut film Electroma, the French electronic group Daft Punk directed themselves in a video for the song 'Robot Rock', from their third album, Human After All. The video finds Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo in black leather and robot masks performing on a dark, neon-lit stage resembling somewhat the sets for the BBC's flagship pop music show Top of the Pops in the late eighties. Surrounding the stage, a p...

The calendar has turned from 2010 to 2011 (and from January to February, I just noticed. When the hell did that happen?). We here at the Lancaster Area Film Festival are hard at work getting ready to program the third edition of our fest celebrating independent film in Lancaster. I doubt you can call it work, however, as we are watching the films submitted to the festival. This is by far our favorite part (after all, how else can we get away with watching movies all day?).

Los Angeles Music Video Festival

 

Third Annual Los Angeles Music Video Festival will run May 1st-4th, 2013.

Submission deadline is February 15th.


 

Music videos are powerful creative units that serve many purposes. They are marketing tools for bands, promotional reels for filmmakers, storytelling experiments...they are perhaps the most flexible, visceral and accessible film format, purely focused on the combination of sound and image. And yet, music videos have all but disappeared from television, even as the number of music videos being produced has burgeoned. YouTube, Vimeo and MySpace may "house" videos, but there is less and less opportunity for videos to be showcased and celebrated. A precious few receive the attention they deserve.

 

The Los Angeles Music Video Festival exists with one purpose: to celebrate the art of the music video. While many film festivals have music video categories, there was no annual live festival in the United States (and only a handful in the world) dedicated to the format 100%. LAMVF provides a unique opportunity for aspiring musicians and aspiring filmmakers to showcase their music videos. More importantly, the Festival will bring together the independent music and independent film communities of Los Angeles in a celebration of local musical talent and creativity like never before.

 

After two great years, the Los Angeles Music Video Festival (LAMVF) is thrilled to announce it's 3rd Annual festival will be held over four evenings at the beautiful Downtown Independent Theater May 1-4, 2013.  If you make music, make videos, like music videos or know anyone who does, come be a part of the movement to save music videos.
