The Promonews Podcast: new episode with Andy Morahan out now

Promonews - 26th Apr 2022

The Promonews Podcast is back, with something a bit different. In this episode, for the first time the Podcast takes a dip into Music Video History, with one of the dons of music video direction - Andy Morahan.

Thirty years ago, Andy was working with Guns N’ Roses - the biggest rock band in the world, at the height of their fame and notoriety - directing a series of extravagant videos that still spark debate today. The spectacular series of promos for the band's double album Use Your Illusion I & II included November Rain, a nine-minute epic that features Slash's iconic guitar solo in the desert - arguably the most iconic moment in all rock music videos.

Andy describes his crazy year with G N' R as "like Spinal Tap with money", and he gives TPP hosts David Knight and Rob Ulitski a rare taste of those wild days of big hair, big egos and big budgets. He also heads further back to how he began his career in London in the Eighties, making some of the best loved British videos of the era - including classics for George Michael and Pet Shop Boys.

This is the latest episode of The Promonews Podcast: Talking Music Videos, sponsored by Loop Talent. Previous episodes in the current series have featured director and creative director Nathan James Tettey, director KC Locke, director's agent Sam Davey, and directors Fred Rowson and Sam Brown.

Interviewees in the previous two series of the podcast include directors Salmon Ligthelm, Olivia Rose, Sophia Ray with producer Mayling Wong, Kasper Häggström, Lucrecia Taormina, RUFFMERCY and Louis Bhose. 

In previous episodes The Promonews Podcast has also welcomed DoPs Rik Burnell and Adam Singodia, the latter talking with colourist Vlad Barin; hair stylist Regina Meesen; and COMPULSORY's director's rep Lee Fairweather.
