Courtesy of Motion Picture House, the Ibiza Music Video Festival (IMVF) is a 2-day celebration for the craft of… yup, you guessed it… the music video! Let’s move the spotlight from the artists of the music here and let it shine down on the geniuses behind the lens. Music videos have become such an important string to the bow, what with Internet channels such as YouTube and Vimeo showcasing artist’s music videos to millions of viewers a day. It is known that the song is the most important part of the package, but I think it’s plain to see that music videos have become as just as equally important, in the last decade. It could potentially make or break you. The IMVF’s platform gives the opportunity for budding talent to meet with the experts from the industry and show off their artistic skills. The IMVF is also attended by, established companies, record labels, director’s reps and advertising agencies, this is a great chance to expand and make transitions to different areas of the industry.
