The f***ing crisis is international, big, strong and it swallows everything (and it serves as an excuse for some folks!!). Consequently the ViMus Festival was infected by this ‘virus’ and there will be no festival this year. If we’ll find an antibiotic, the show will be on road again.
It was a great experience, we’ve seen fantastic videos from the five continents, we’ve met nice people. The ‘tree’ was growing healthy, but someone shouted: “Timber!”
Anyway, thanks to all of you who ‘really’ supported this festival.
To make the MV community even bigger we’re going to suggest whenever possible a site/blog that has the Music Video as a major figure. And we’ll start with:
“Video Militia is a community-based videoblog & social network focused on emerging music videos, commercials & films. The mission is to create a rally point around the best and freshest of our trade. The focus is especially on the fringe, exceptional, underground or undiscovered; this site serves all those fighting to be noticed.
Think of Video Militia as a community-based, videoblog and on a smaller scale, a social network. The quality of the articles reflects the integrity of the site so if you submit an article try to remember these tenets!”
