Full Sail's Music Video Panel, taking place at 4:30pm on April 13th, to feature top music video directors, including Phil Harder (Prince, Incubus, Foo Fighters), and Vem (Skindred, X-Ecutioners).

Full Sail Real World Education, in association with MVWire.com, will be hosting a special panel devoted to building a career in music video production. The Music Video Panel, which will take place during this year’s Florida Film Festival, will be held at the Enzian Theater, in Maitland, Florida on the afternoon of April 13th. The panel is scheduled to last from 4:30pm to 6pm, and will feature the talents and insight of several top music video directors.

The Full Sail/MVWire Music Video Panel has been designed to offer an informative and enlightening discussion for aspiring music video directors and producers. The panel discussion will detail the production pipeline of music videos, as well as the creative, technical, and business aspects of the industry.

The following directors and music video experts will be adding their personal experiences to the panel discussion:

• Phil Harder, of Harder/Fuller Films, has been directing music videos since 1985, and his credit list spans the length and breadth of popular music, including videos for Prince, Incubus, Liz Phair, Foo Fighters, Barenaked Ladies, Matchbox 20, Low, Pulp, Soul Asylum, Cornershop, and the Afghan Whigs.

• Vem is a part of acclaimed production house DNA, which includes directors like Liz Friedlander (U2, Joss Stone), Francis Lawrence (Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake), and Jean-Baptiste Mondino (Madonna, Bjork). Vem has recently directed videos for Skindred, Future Leaders of the World, and X-Ecutioners.

• Jennifer Amerine is a director’s rep for Radical Media in Los Angeles who has worked with a number of esteemed music video directors, including Chris Milk (Modest Mouse, Kanye West), Brett Simon (The Killers, French Kicks), and Dave Meyers (Outkast, Britney Spears).

• Justine K. Smith is the founder of Stompbox Creative Management, where she independently reps music video directors for leading production companies.

The Music Video Panel will be moderated by Matt Gorney, Full Sail’s Associate Course Director for Music History, who addresses the history and influence of music videos in his course curriculum.

Gorney is excited about the opportunity this panel presents to up and coming filmmakers. “With the emergence of cable music channels more than 20 years ago, music videos have evolved from a marketing tool used by record labels to push an album, into a respected and challenging art form,” he explains. “This panel offers the chance to learn from the artists out there making this genre-defining entertainment, and walk away with a better understanding of what it takes to succeed in this industry.”
