Worldwide Production Agency, leading representatives of film production professionals – including producers, cinematographers and production designers – are the latest company to partner with the UK Music Video Awards 2016.
In their second successive year as sponsors, WPA are sponsoring the Best Producer award at this year's UKMVAs. Barnaby Laws, MD of WPA's London office, has expressed his delight at the company's partnership with the most important awards show celebrating the breadth of creativity in music video production in the UK and worldwide.
"It's always great to be involved with the UKMVAs," says Laws. "I have grown up in promos, and that's where many of my best relationships and long term clients come from. As WPA London has developed, it's important to still be supporting music videos and the opportunities they allow.
"The people I look after, whether they are Producers, Directors of Photography or Production Designers, all feel they can still flex their creative muscles on promos and love the opportunity. Sponsoring the Best Producer award at the UKMVAs is a great way to recognise the unique talent that we have in London, and arguably the most vibrant music video industry in the world.”
