Have all you cinephiles recovered from Indie Memphis yet? I'm done fighting that post-fest funk, and now it's time to take stock. Today on Music Video Monday, we're presenting the winners of the two video awards.
An incredible 44 videos screened to a party atmosphere at Black Lodge last Sunday night. The winner of the Sounds Music Video Award, which covers American and international entries, was DarriusTheGreatest & Ttropicana's dancehall-inflected "Got It, Got It." In true Indie Memphis tradition, the it's a low-budget scrapper the prevailed over videos made with lots more resources.
The Hometowner Music Video award went to Talibah Safiya's "Healing Creek," directed by Memphis wunderkind Kevin Brooks. Shot Super-8 style, this simple, beautiful visual concentrates on bringing out Safiya's considerable natural charisma.
