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 2017.
It's the second year that WPA are sponsoring the Best Producer award at the UKMVAs, and their third year in succession as sponsors overall.
Barnaby Laws, MD of WPA's London office, says that he is delighted that the agency are again sponsoring Best Producer at the biggest night of the year for everyone in the business of making music videos, when people will gather from all over the world to be at the Roundhouse on October 26th to be there.
"It's a pleasure to be involved in the UKMVA’s again," says Laws. "Even after all these years and despite many ups and downs in the music video industry, they are still something that I love to be involved with and support when needed. Music Videos are the foundation of most people’s careers that we work with, and events like the UKMVAs remind us how fortunate we are to have a thriving and creative Promo industry in this country.
"Sponsoring best producer is a great reminder just how important the skills of the production team are. It's often overlooked just how important a producer is at making the magic happen!”
