Mirrorball Nippon 2


Time to get ready for another music video festival in town, this time courtesy of Mirrorball Nippon, and taking place at everyone’s favorite creative venue, SuperDeluxe.

The music video showcase Mirrorball, screened annually at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, celebrated its 10th anniversary last year. To mark the occasion, the acclaimed event will be presented for the 2nd time in Japan, with a specially curated selection of screenings and top creator guests from London. Mirrorball Nippon will be held over the weekend of April 15th & 16th at Tokyo’s premier arts and music venue, SuperDeluxe.

As guests to the event, we welcome MD & producer John Hassay, and director Dougal Wilson from award-winning production company Colonel Blimp. John and Dougal will each present creative talk sessions featuring screenings of their works, revealing their ideas and approach to promo-making. Including renowned promos for Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, The Streets and many many more, Colonel Blimp represent a roster of hugely talented directors including Dougal Wilson, Pleix, Lynn Fox, Blue Source, Happy, David O’Reilly, and are leading lights of the international music promo scene.

I’m really looking forward to this, although I am a bit worried about seating — can’t see myself standing up for all these programs.
