Need a great music video? Or want to make more music videos for great artists? Radar can put you in touch with the directors, labels, managers or artists you need.- We help labels, managers & artists get great videos on affordable budgets.
We get a big kick from helping talented new directors really succeed. So we created our Director Development Scheme to give all directors the means to hone their skills and progress their careers.
The scheme gives directors career know-how and access to briefs, to build and refine essential pitching, production, directing and inter-personal skills. We show directors how to achieve success in the wider world, and as that success begins to materialise, we award them Headhunted status. The career goal for most emerging directors is to sign to a rep or production company. Headhunted status gives directors exclusive access to top-level briefs, and starts a Radar-supported relationship with our world-class rep and production company partners. All upgraded directors on Radar can access the scheme.
Here's the components:
- Pitching skills - Production skills - Directing and editing skills - Inter-personal skills (aka 'don't be a dick')
The briefs on Radar are opportunities to work on all of these skills. Directors without impressive videos on their reels are more likely to win lower budget briefs. Directors with impressive videos - and reviews or other curator support for those videos - are more likely to win higher-value briefs.
We publish articles about skills development and also hold masterclasses and webinars with leading industry experts. Check the blog for articles and upcoming events.
