Loco producer, Arlene Dignam had the honour of announcing the winner of the Loco-sponsored Best Director Award which went to Oscar Hudson. Building on his 2016 success as Best New Director, Oscar sent a heartfelt acceptance via video message from America. His 2017 promo for Bonobo’s No Reason won two awards on the night, Best Dance Video UK & Best Production Design in a Video.

Working closely with event director Louise Stevens of Ballistic Events, Loco’s Arlene Dignam led our production team to create the video packages for projection on the big screens. With more than 30 categories and six nominees in each, that makes for a lot of fantastic content. Our editors Emily Ledger and Liam Hawe also worked with video artist Sam Bailey to animate the visual stings, and with David Knight of Promo News, they created the opening montage.

Loco was established in 1994 as a boutique post production facility and has grown into a full-service video production and postproduction creative hot shop. We are a talented team of animators, editors, VFX artists, colourists and directors who share a passion for visual media. Music videos are a natural extension of our creative ethos.

Loco Creative Director Danny Coster says, “Loco loves working with Music Videos as it gives our team real freedom to explore finishing techniques and styles. We’re proud to sponsor the Best Director category and give recognition to some truly outstanding film making”.

The UKMVAs is the premier awards shows dedicated to innovation and creativity in music video around the world. Every year, it celebrates the best of British and international music videos across a wide range of genres, budgets as well as creative and technical disciplines.
