Camerimage Music Video Cinematography Awards
Posted 27 November 2008 - 09:15 PM
I am pleased to present the nominees for Excellence in Cinematography Of A Music Vidoe for the 16th annual Camerimage Festival:
Kasper Tuxen Anderson "Kingdom" Dave Gahan
Jeff Cronenweth, ASC "Love In This Club" Usher
Max Goldman "Where Is My Love" Cat Power
Shawn Kim & Aaron Stewart-Ahn (co-DP) "I Will Possess Your Heart" Death Cab For Cutie
Mike LeBlanc "Our Hell" Emily Hayes+Soft Skeleton
Chris Probst "Ayo Technology" 50 Cent
I?d also like to thank each of you for your participation in recommending and collecting the nominated videos. Big or small, nominated or not, your contribution was an important part of the process and a testament to the importance of this award. It would not have been possible without your participation.
I?m pleased to announce that the organizers of the festival are so impressed with the work of the six nominees that they will be covering travel and hotel expenses for each of the nominees who chooses to attend, and that may be unanimous. Each of the nominees will also be presented to the festival via an individual 1.5 hour seminar/Q&A.
The festival also decided to arrange to screen the videos all week long, and in addition to the award selected by a panel of cinematographers, there will also be a second award chosen by the attendees
Although this is the inaugural award, it is intended to be presented every year from now on, so keep your eyes open and be sure to make note of any music videos you see that exemplify excellent cinematography because we will be back in touch with you next September.
I?d also like to mention that is was a difficult decision to select the final six, as it could easily have been any of the final twelve or twenty that made the cut. The work is that good.
My sincerest thanks, Daniel Pearl, ASC

i recommend to open the contest to music video from all over the world
so some one not working with 50cent could sand his work
maybe it should be a sub category for low budget or international music video.
there are so many great music video from all over the world
i at list like to think that my one of my 100 7000$ budget clips can have a chance:)
lets show it's about creative cinematography and not about big names and big budgets

Since I don´t watch music videos on television anymore and I don´t have so much online time to go hunting for them on the internet, it would be a good idea to post such links regularly. Okay, I better check this board more frequently...

I posted yesterday and it didn't register...strange...
Anyway, I wonder if anybody knows how this effect was achieved?
It looks like thermal imaging, this video would have my vote, that's a difficult trick to pull off!
