BUG 53, our final show of the year, and it was an another packed programme of outstanding music video creativity curated by the BUG team, and hosted by the marvellous Adam Buxton. As well as great new work we had some gems from earlier in the year we previously missed and were part of the recent ukmva awards.
We also welcomed to the stage our special guest Dawn Shadforth
who is one of the UK’s finest music video directors. Dawn emerged in the late 1990s with her groundbreaking direction and editing of dance music videos. That quickly translated into a peerless command of the British pop video, combining commercial success with cutting edge cool. From All Seeing I to Garbage to Kylie and Moloko, she made some of the classic and videos of best lovedlate 90s and early Noughties. And now, after a time away mostly making ads, she has made a blistering return to form this year with videos for Hurts and Metronomy. Dawn will be talking to Adam later in the show.
