South x Southside: Forest of Black Music Videos
Friday 13 May, 20.30-22:00 (£5)
The Shed (The Loft)
This screening and Q and A has been specially commissioned by the Southside Film Festival. The Forest of Black is a Glasgow based video production company run by director Blair Young and producer Beth Allan. The company produces creative video content for music related projects.
The Forest Of Black have spent the last decade quietly becoming the most productive music video company working out of Scotland. It’s not been an easy ride though, battling the London centric workings of the record industry and the inevitable creative compromises of a promotional format.
As well as producing music promos for Biffy Clyro, Franz Ferdinand and Belle and Sebastian (to name only a few), they have also provided for television documentaries, commercial and corporate advertising campaigns.
