(Nhan Dan Online) The British Council in Hanoi has kicked off a music video project called ‘Antenna Plus’ with a view to showcasing the creativity of the UK music video industry, promoting Vietnamese video clip makers as well as strengthening UK- Vietnam partnerships in the field.

The project will conduct various activities in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, including talks, screenings of UK video clips and video clip competitions.

The first event of the project, a special talk was held last night in Hanoi for film students and video clip lovers by Jason Groves, video clip producer of Shynola from the UK and Vietnamese video clip director Nguyễn Việt Tú.

At the talk, the ‘wonder boy of British animation’, Jason Groves presented a special talk sharing Shynola’s creative and practical approach to creating and then successfully pitching concepts for music video. Consisting of 4 members, Shynola is highly acclaimed for their promos and music videos in the UK.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Viet Tu, who is considered Vietnam’s most creative and avant-garde video clip director, talked about his works and shared his views as a music director about the music video industry of Vietnam.

A similar talk will also be held in Ho Chi Minh City on March 14 at 9 a.m. at the New Stage, Ho Chi Minh City College of Stage Arts and Film, 125 Cong Quynh, district 1.

On 13 March in Hanoi and 14 March in Ho Chi Minh City, the British Council will also organise a discussion between Jason Groves and Vietnamese music video clip makers of the two cities in order to exchange ideas and explore the possibility of UK – Vietnam co-operation in the field of music video in future.
