MKN, a media production company that specialize in music videos, commercials and promos have announced the first ever Music Video Director’s seminar in Lagos, Nigeria in March. The MKN Seminar which is the first of its kind is expected to hold a capacity crowd of 1,000 people.
Top directors Director X who has directed music videos for Rihanna, Drake, Sean Paul and Jay Z to name a few; Sesan who has worked with artist including Wizkid, Wande Coal, Davido and Mr Moe Musa whose roster includes Tiwa Savage, Patoranking and Fuse ODG were announced as key speakers.
Julien Christian Lutz better known as Director X, is a Canadian music video director. A protégé of Hype Williams, X has been noted for his high-budget, visually distinctive music videos for popular music singles, including videos. His trademark is tweaking the letterbox format; instead of just using black bars on the top and bottom of the frame to frame the image, many videos by X actually feature the bars opening vertically to reveal the video and closing vertically at the end, like a letter box.
Moe Musa is one of the most sought after video directors in the industry. Born in Nigeria and raised in London, Moe’s early experiences on set inspired his passion for filmmaking. After graduating from Thames Valley University with a degree in Media Technology, his breakthrough video for the song ‘Antenna’ by Fuse 2ODG has brought him attention on an international level. He has since gone on to shoot videos in Nigeria, France, Amsterdam, America, Cyprus and South Africa. His videos have been featured on MTV Base, BET, Channel O & TraceTV.
Sesan, a multiple awards winner, had worked alongside some of the most dynamic and forward-thinking design and creative agencies in the UK, USA and West Africa. He produced work for high end clients such as Microsoft, L’Oreal, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Nestle, Samsung and Xbox. From concept through to production, his experience ranges across a variety of media such as music videos, visual effects, TV commercials and games.
The Conference which has been tagged “Inside the Mind of a Successful Video Director” will take place at The Summit on NERDC road in Ikeja, on the 12th of March, 2016.
