Cherub Pictures director Justin Kurzel has won the Best Music Video Award for the clip ‘Pulse’ by The Mess Hall as well as the Music Video Audience Choice Award for ‘Keep Walking’ by The Mess Hall at this year’s St Kilda Film Festival.
Both music videos were produced by Pip Smart.
”To have two music videos screening in St Kilda Film Festival was a great honour, and then to have both of them awarded by industry judges and audiences alike, was a great thrill for myself and The Mess Hall.” said Justin Kurzel.
Also screening at St Kilda Film Festival was Ben Briand’s Hammer Bay, a one hour drama commissioned by MTV and Optus.
Kurzel together with Briand is currently co-directing The Vines’ video for their new single ‘He’s A Rocker’.
The single from the forthcoming album is to be released in mid July through Ivy League Records. ‘He’s A Rocker’ was showcased live at the SXSW music festival in Austin and recently had its world-wide TV premiere at the Australian MTV Awards.
