FAULT Magazine Attends The UK Music Video Awards 2017

 

Last night FAULT Magazine attended the 2017 UK Music Video awards at London’s Roundhouse. Now in its 10th year, the award honours the greatest and most creative music videos and the people that make them – say what you will about 2017, it’s undeniably been a great year for music and music videos.

Hosted by the hilarious Adam Buxton, the night saw big wins for Kendrick Lamar who won the Artist of the Year award and alt-j’s 3WW won Best Alternative Video and Best Cinematography.

The night saw US director Ryan Staake win big, for his work on Young Thug’s Wyclef Jean – picking up a Video of the Year, Best Editing and Best International Urban Video award. By now, you’ll no doubt have seen the music video which nearly never was – but thanks to his innovation and problem-solving skills Ryan managed to pull it off!

In the Pop categories, Dua Lipa’s New Rules triumphed among the UK videos, while Haim’s Want You Back took the International award with US director Jake Shreier collecting the trophy. Other international directors who took awards include Barcelona’s CANADA for Beck’s Up All Night, and France’s The Blaze, who directed their own video for Territory. British directing team The Sacred Egg won the UK Rock/Indie Video trophy for their work on Royal Blood’s Lights Out and Hector Dockrill took the UK Urban Video award for Ray Blk’s Patience.

The UK Music Video Awards editorial director, David Knight, says, “More than ever, the music video is the place where musicians collaborate with filmmakers to create astonishing works of creativity. The winners and nominees at the UKMVAs have demonstrated that with their exceptional work in the past year.

All in all, we had a great night at the Roundhouse celebrating alongside such a talented room of individuals! Cheers to the UKMVAs and another 10 years of success celebrating the wonderfully diverse talents out there!
