Do you want to make music videos and make them short works of art? This year at Film Spring Open Air we will continue creative group work making music videos. As a group coordinator we invited again Ania Maliszewska, a friend of Film Spring Open!

Ania Maliszewska is one of the most renowned music videos directors in Poland. She made music videos for i.e. Kasia Nosowska, Hey, Reni Jusis, Urszula Dudziak, Myslovitz, Sistars, Kayah, Zakopower, Smolik, Doda. Her works were awarded at Polish and international festivals, she also co-created MTV channel in Poland.

You have little time so use it well

“Music video is one of the few forms of film where the music is as important as the image. When I start to work on a music video I listen to the song all the time. I dive into the world of the artist and the song. Moreover – I dive in headfirst and I do not come back for air until I understand what this world is made of, what color it is, how it smells. Only then the idea comes out. Sometimes the concept is most important other times it is the mood or the story that you’ll see while listening to the music. What matters is consequence. Remember that the song is short – you have little time so use it well to entertain, surprise, shock, frighten, embarrass, and move. Everything is allowed! We put in your hands two great songs and we can’t wait for your scripts! So take a deep breath and dive in headfirst!” says Ania Maliszewska.
