Ben shared with us some of the reasons this video is so special, “In many ways I’ve been chasing this video for over 10 years and it manifested perfectly with Scott Helman. We went into the desert with a rough wish list if shots, but it wasn’t until we fully embraced the beautiful chaos of Slab City that magic really started to happen. This video truly embodies my best work to date and I’m extremely thrilled and grateful for the experience. It truly reminds me why I picked up a camera in the first place.”

‘Kinda Complicated’ has been featured on this weeks Much Music rotation, and don’t miss Scott Helman’s new album “Hôtel de Ville” releasing tomorrow!

RUTH B’s NEW MUSIC VIDEO HAS US ‘GOING CRAZY’

If you haven’t seen it already, the music video for Ruth B’s new single ‘Superficial Love’ was released on Friday, and it’s already surpassed 300,000+ views!

Just like Ruth B, ‘Superficial love’ is chalked full of spunk. Alison Honey Woods, the talented director, shared with us some of her inspiration for the video, “When I watched Ruth B’s original Vines I knew I wanted to make a video focused on her personality. We did Superficial Love as a beautiful one shot so that Ruth could really have fun with her performance without it being too polished.”

Be sure to keep an eye out for Ruth B’s full album “Safe Haven” that is released on May 5th.

October 24th, 2016 – (Vancouver, BC, Canada) – Stephano Barberis has scored his 17th consecutive BCCMA last night for Video Director Of The Year at the BC Country Music Association‘s award show at the Hard Rock Theatre in Coquitlam, BC.

Last month, Barberis returned from London, Ontario where he won his 9th CCMA Award for Video Director Of The Year.

Stephano Barberis’ tally of directorial and video awards now stands at a staggering 33 wins out of over 70 nominations. This is a mind blowing number that makes him the most highly awarded music video director in Canadian history by a large and ever expanding margin.

The director’s exalted reputation for star-making and re-invention is evidenced by millions of online views, over 60 official top 20 video hits on major television stations on multiple continents, prolific output, and over 150 music videos trusted to his vision.

Stephano has quietly achieved this iconic success by frequent, surprise, sea-change reinvention, an unwavering obsession with quality, and a cult-like dedicated following in industry and fan circles who religiously support the director at every stage of his career. With a strongly cinematic influence of magic-realism, Barberis has often been credited with changing the aesthetic face of country music in Canada while pushing boundaries in pop, rap, and other genres.
