Winner and Finalists of Saatchi & Saatchi, Vimeo and BUG Music Video Challenge featured on Moby's 'Destroyed Deluxe' album
October 26, 2011
Moby is set to release Destroyed Deluxe on October 31st - a deluxe version of his latest album Destroyed. Since its release earlier this year, Destroyed has received four-star reviews in MOJO, Uncut and Record Collector. The new deluxe edition of Destroyed consists of a 3-disc set that includes unreleased tracks, live footage and videos.
The supporting music videos for both ‘After’ and ‘The Right Thing’ are from new directors who entered the Saatchi & Saatchi ‘Hello, Future’ Music Video Challenge this summer. As part of the 21st New Directors’ Showcase, Saatchi & Saatchi partnered with Moby, Vimeo and BUG to discover fresh filmmaking talent with the Music Video Challenge. The brief was to visualise the concept of ’Hello, Future’ in the form of a standout music video inspired by one of three tracks selected from Destroyed.
The videos featured on Destroyed Deluxe for ‘After’ are provided by Alberto Gomez from Mexico, the winner of the Music Video Challenge, and by one of the 10 finalists - Antonin Pevny from Austria. For new single – a double a-side of ‘After’ and ‘The Right Thing’ - Moby commissioned another finalist, The Manship Society, to create a brand new video, set in New York and featuring vocalist Inyang Bassey.
Jeremy Boxer, Creative Director – Vimeo added: "We were delighted to hear that Moby has chosen to include the top ten finalists from the ‘Hello, Future’ Music Video Challenge. It is a true testament to the quality of the work that was entered from the Vimeo community. We look forward to seeing more amazing work from each of these talented filmmakers in the future. Congratulations all round and thanks to Moby.”
Videos by all 10 finalists in the Music Video Challenge are featured on Disc 3 of ‘Destroyed Deluxe’. The finalists were; Frank Beltrán, David Evan Bowers, Alberto Gomez, Brian McCann, Lindsay MacKay, Antonin Pevny, Oden, Martin Rodahl, Alexey Terehoff, and Roland Wittl. Each of the 10 finalists’ videos were featured in the New Directors’ Showcase at the 59th Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity this June.
Tom Eslinger, Creative Director - Digital, Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide said: "Two years ago we started running a competition alongside the New Directors’ Showcase. Our incentive was simple: the winner would make a film for one of our clients somewhere in the world. We started the competitions to dig deeper into the new talent who actively participate and create via creative portals like Aniboom and Vimeo. Alberto's film, and the success of our other finalists, shows that not only are we on the right track but the industry that commissions their work thinks so as well"
David Knight, Creative Director, BUG Music Videos commented: “BUG was delighted to be involved in the search for new directing talent that the ‘Hello, Future’ Music Video Challenge represented. We wanted to give aspiring filmmakers the chance to express themselves via Moby’s music, and to reward the winner with an outstanding career opportunity. Having the finalists involved in Destroyed Deluxe is further proof of the competition’s remarkable success – and it means we’ve exceeded all our expectations. Congratulations to Alberto and the other finalists; big thanks to Moby.”
