"Best Animated Music Video" at Handle the Jandal

Autumn Stone Scoop "Best Animated Music Video" @ Handle the Jandal

Good morning,

Please accept my apology for the blanket email. I hope you understand that there are alot of people to communicate with after last nights Handle the Jandal Music Video Awards.

Autumn Stone were selected for Wellington Music Industry Showcase that is happening on November 24 and 25 so it was great to have further evidence that the band are doing the right things!

Blain Hosford was Highly Commended as a (music video) director and won the Jandal for Best Animated Music Video. The judges also reiterated that Blain was someone to watch and that they wanted to see what Blain did in the future.

Blain worked long hours to create the animated music video "Payload" which has received good coverage on music television. The first impression of "Payload" is a simple linear but further viewing reveals a number of complexities including interesting use of camera and detailed characters.

What sets Autumn Stone apart from other bands in New Zealand is how music and visuals are integrated in their live show. The band perform on stage to perfectly synchronised visuals which is unique!

Autumn Stone are about to embark on their second South Island tour this year and have shows booked in Auckland and Wellington through to the new year. I am currently booking the band for shows in Auckland and new opportunites in festivals and television.

Keep an eye out for "I'll Make You a Star" which will be the first music video that the band will make available to view on their website. Or contact me or the band if you have an opportunity to highlight the recent success of Wellington band Autumn Stone.

Kind regards,

Tane McLeay (Band Manager)

pp Blain Hosford (Autumn Stone - Songwriting/Director)

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
