UK Music Video Awards 2019: Electric Theatre Collective sponsors Best Director award for first time at the UKMVAs
Electric Theatre Collective, leading international VFX and grading studio, is partnering with the UK Music Video Awards 2019 once again, and sponsoring one of the biggest awards at the world's greatest music video awards show for the first time - Best Director.
An independent, award-winning collective made up of a super-talented, diverse bunch of artists, makers and innovators, and working across a variety of creative disciplines including CGI, 2D, animation, concept art and colour grading based in London, LA and Bristol, Electric Theatre Collective has become one of the top commercial visual effects companies in the world - working with many of the world's leading brands, such as Coca Cola, Diageo, H&M, Audi, Amazon, Nike, Calvin Klein, Apple, Netflix, and Sony - while also retaining strong links to music.
We’re proud to be sponsoring the UKMVAs once again, and for one of the most coveted categories of Best Director.
In the last year, Electric has collaborated on some of the biggest and best music videos including Wiley's Boasty, Lil Nas X's Old Town Road, Vince Staples Fun!, Stormzy's Vossi Bop and Charli XCX & Christine and the Queen's Gone. Electric's sponsorship of the prestigious Best Director award, resumes a longstanding partnership with the UKMVAs.
"We’re really proud to be sponsoring the UKMVAs once again this year, and for one of the most coveted categories of Best Director," says Luke Morrison, Head of Colour at Electric Theatre Collective. "Year on year, we see the boundaries of music video craft being pushed to the limit and the MVAs is such a great place to showcase the talent and recognise everyone involved for their great work.”
