'MUSIC VIDEOS IN LOCKDOWN' Episode 5: The Future Of Our Industry - exclusive on Promonews
In the final episode of Natalie Steiner's film series about the music video community during the pandemic crisis, our panel of interviewees reflect upon what they have missed about their pre-lockdown work routine, and then ponder upon what the industry will look like when things start moving again.
After Episode 4: Wonderings & Worries, in which Natalie Steiner's interviewees reflected upon the immediate concerns caused by Covid-19, and the bigger issues that have arisen from the crisis, The Future Of Our Industry mixes some fond recollections of the communal experience of filmmaking, from the camaraderie to the adrenalin-buzz, to the practicalities of getting the industry moving again.
The discussion in this final episode is a mixture of prediction, hopes and nostalgic appreciation for the music video industry pre-Covid19.
This timely episode, edited by Meg Thorne at Cut+Run, features nearly all of the panel interviewed by Steiner and Eleri Evans for the Music Videos In Lockdown series.
