The Promonews Podcast: new episode with Rick Joaquim out now!

Promonews - 30th May 2022

A new episode of The Promonews Podcast is out today, featuring South African cinematographer Rick Joaquim, who is now establishing himself in the UK, with increasingly high profile work in music videos and beyond.

Born in Johannesburg, Rick Joaquim learned his craft working in various forms of filmmaking in South Africa, from narrative and documentary, to commercials and music videos. Then he moved to the UK with his family at the start of 2021, at the height of the pandemic.

His conversation with Promonews' David Knight and Rob Ulitski covers his career in South Africa and the upheaval of the past year or so, establishing himself in the UK scene on work including videos for KSI and Clean Bandit, and gives some insight into his meticulous working process. 

This is the latest episode of The Promonews Podcast: Talking Music Videos, sponsored by Loop Talent. Recent episodes have featured legendary music video director Andy Morahan discussing his career, including his spectacular videos for Guns 'N Roses; and Milo Blake, a young director making an impact with videos for a new generation of music artists including Lava La Rue, Willow Kayne, and Louis Culture.

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.
