Barnaby Laws, UK managing director of Worldwide Production Agency, will be delivering the keynote speech at the third annual MusicVidFest - the all-day conference dedicated to all things music video – at the BFI Southbank on Wednesday November 9th.

One of the most highly respected and experienced individuals involved in making music videos in Britain, Laws will be sharing his reflections, opinions and insight about the British and international music video industry from his unique perspective, having spent the best part of two decades assisting in the production of thousands of music videos - often in testing circumstances.

After a couple of years gaining on-set experience, Laws spent 18 years at Panalux, the UK's busiest lighting company, rising through the ranks at the company to become Sales Manager responsible for all music videos and commercials. He became known as a white knight for the music video industry, enabling countless productions to go ahead in a period of falling budgets.

Since 2015, Laws has applied his considerable experience of camera and lighting, becoming the first British MD of leading LA-based Worldwide Production Agency, where he represents a roster of cinematographers and production designers including Brett Turnbull, Pau Castejon, Rob Witt, Alex Delgado and James Rhodes.

He will share his insights on the inner workings of the music video production business at the third MusicVidFest at the BFI Southbank on Wednesday November 9th, with discussions on a wide range of subjects, and a forensic look at some of the biggest music videos of the year, will take place over the course of the day. 

More news on the panels at this year's MusicVidFest coming soon, and "earlybird" tickets are available for this year's MVF - supported by Procam and giffgaff – from the MusicVidFest website until Monday, October 31st at 8pm (GMT).
