Most revealing piece of data from this year's awards:

Of the 5 nominees for director of the year, Only Megaforce directed more than 2 music videos this year. And they did 3.

Has this ever happened before? Maybe I'm used to the mid-00's when a hot director would catch fire and do a new video every month (I'm thinking of Dougal, Patrick, Nima, etc). Even the nominees for best new director seem like they had relatively small bodies of work this year.


         
almotasim, January 6, 2014 12:40:17 PM CET

Well, Fleur & Manu, Cyriak, Isaiah Seret and CANADA made such striking videos that quality ruled over quantity in the nomination. When both criteria were matched, the voting was the most expressive of the lot: Megaforce best director entry was, by far, the most voted of all AMVA 2013 items.

Plus: a hot director can film other things than music videos. Take Andreas Nilsson for instance: he killed this year with his Van Damme / Volvo epic split commercial.
