UK Music Video Awards 2022: LEAP is UKMVAs' post production partner again, sponsoring Best Special Visual Project

Promonews - 12th Oct 2022

LEAP’s Film and Post team are continuing their longstanding post-production partnership with the UK Music Video Awards, working on the on-screen content for the live UKMVAs ceremony later this month - and also sponsoring the prestigious award for Best Special Visual Project.

LEAP is working on creating the nomination packages for the event in close collaboration with the UKMVAs team and designers StudioThomson, continuing a relationship with the premier celebration of UK and international music video production which began fourteen years ago with the first awards show in 2008.

The UK Music Video Awards 2022 will take place for the first time at Magazine London, overlooking the River Thames, on Thursday October 27th. Tickets are on sale now.

UKMVAs' Event Director Louise Stevens says: “We’re delighted to be working with the talented editors and producers at LEAP once again this year to create the on-screen packages for our Awards show. They are an essential force in the creative collaboration between the UKMVAs, our art directors at StudioThomson, animator Jake Greenwood and sound designer Rob Simons. With their help, we look forward to delivering a spectacular presentation of the nominated work at Magazine London on October 27th.”

David Poole, LEAP Creative Director, Film and Content says, “With an enthusiastic return towards normality in the workplace, it’s particularly exciting to yet again be working with the UKMVAs as their post-production partner.

"We are delighted to play our part in honouring the creative people behind the artform – directors, producers, cinematographers, production designers, choreographers, colourists, editors, animators and VFX artists as well as commissioners and agents – all voted for by professionals within the industry. This year, LEAP sponsors the Best Special Visual Project category, and we offer our congratulations to all the shortlisted nominees."

The roots of LEAP’s moving image team date back to the 1990s, making them one of the most experienced post houses in London. Back when the MVAs started, the team were digitising stacks of digibeta tapes in a Soho machine room. Nowadays, LEAP provides secure high volume file management through virtual server technology. In the past year, the size of the post-production facilities has doubled, with a bigger team of producers and editors enabling LEAP to better support clients across a broad range of sectors and post-production requirements.

For the UKMVAs, LEAP works closely with co-founders Louise Stevens and David Knight and their team to help bring their creative vision to life. No celebration of music video filmmaking talent would be complete without showing selections from the videos themselves, and the company's motion graphics editors are creating the video packages and opening montage for projection onto the big screens. This year’s awards show features nearly forty categories with six nominations in each.

Todd Gyamfi, LEAP Motion Graphics Editor says, “It’s always great to be appreciated for the work you do, so it’s a pleasure to help the ‘behind-the-scenes’ teams get their accolades.”

LEAP is also the post-production partner for BUG: The Evolution of Music Video, so the team get to enjoy regular batches of fantastic creativity throughout the year, but it’s especially exciting to see what rises to the top at the UKMVAs.

Arlene Dignam, LEAP Video Producer says, “I am immensely proud to have worked with Ballistic Events on BUG and the UKMVAs for the last 14 years. Being a massive music fan, I've been so lucky to see the cutting edge of video production.”
