Promonews - 30th July 2021

The fifth episode of Promonews' new series of podcasts with creatives in the music video industry is out today, with David Knight and Rob Ulitski in conversation with the director Lucrecia Taormina.

In this episode of The Promonews Podcast: Talking Music Videos - in association with WPA Worldwide Production Agency - the hosts talk with Taormina, a director and photographer who has directed bold and arresting work in videos for Ashnikko, Bree Runway, Steven Wilson, and more.

She talks about how moving to London from Buenos Aires and discovering her creative freedom through photography and then moving image, about the challenges of being a female director, winning an UKMVA Award for her first Ashnikko video for Hi It's Me - and continuing to push things further with her larger-than-life aesthetic.

In each episode of Talking Music Videos, the hosts talk to people making a significant impact in music video production right now.

In the first episode, COMPULSORY's Lee Fairweather talked about the London-based production company's prolific output of music videos in the past year or so. Then director Louis Bhose talked about his career change from music to directing, and his subsequent videos for Loyle Carner, Bombay Bicycle Club, Maisie Peters, and others.

This was followed by director/animator RUFFMERCY talking about his career and his fascinating working process. The last episode featured director Salomon Ligthelm, talking from his home in New York about his work for the likes of Young Fathers and Little Simz, his unconventional career path and bold approach to making music videos.
