BARKER WINS AT ADG AWARDS
David Barker from Taxi Film Production was awarded ‘Best Direction in a Music Video’ at the inaugural Australian Director’s Guild Awards for his stellar work on Butterfinger’s music video "Get up Outta The Dirt". The ADG awards are the only awards in Australia where the work is judged solely by peers.
“Music Videos are a labour of love, so being recognized for your craft is probably the best reward that you can receive – outside the actual artist’s liking it. With the ADG awards, it’s inspiring to have that honor bestowed upon you by your fellow directors,” says Barker.
Barker has enjoyed over 10 years of TVC directing experience, forging a reputation as a director that combines memorable performances within a rich visual aesthetic. “I enjoy coming up with a fresh new idea for a clip as much as I enjoy directing them,” adds Barker.
