Music Malt Online Fest-2014 winning music videos

Music Malt Online Fest-2014 winners!

Festival date - October 18, 2014.

First of all, thank you all for the overwhelming response to MMOF 2014. In its very first edition, MMOF was introduced to a plethora of talent from across the globe. No matter how clichéd it sounds, do believe us when we say that we had a tough time deciding on the winners. Our judges went through hundreds of videos, debated and nearly fought over the long list, short list, and finally the winners. There were many amazing videos we could not accept as all the criteria were not met. Among the ones accepted, in some instances the videos were amazing but the music didn’t make the cut, and in other instances vice versa. Remember, we were looking for an original song that creates the perfect alchemy between music and visuals.

And after much thought and deliberation, we have our final three.

Song of Substance

Beautiful
Music by Nez Erok
Directed by Paul Komadina (Australia)

Song of Substance (a video that sends a strong social message):
Beautiful

Children at an impressionable age are often scarred for life on being subject or witness to domestic violence and abuse. Beautiful touches upon this grave issue in a subtle manner and sends out a very strong message.

Congratulations to Nez Erok and Paul Komadina from Australia.

The Dream Weaver

Heads or Tails
Music by Alexis Harte
Directed by Kate Isenberg (United States)

The Dream Weaver (the most funky, wacko video, mostly animated stuff):
Heads or Tails

Sweet and romantic, Heads or Tails touched us with its tale of enduring love. The animation, catchy tune and lyrics effectively weaved a beautiful narrative which had us asking for more.

Congratulations to Alexis Harte and Kate Isenberg from the United States of America.

Creative Genius

Hang Me On The Line
Music by Jon Kenzie
Directed by Lu Pulici (Italy)

Creative Genius (as the name suggests, get creative):
Hang Me on the Line

You don’t need to be equipped with big budgets, glitz, and glamor if you have creativity on your side. This quirky, funny video blew us away with its minimalistic music and pure genius in which simple resources were used.

Congratulations Jon Kenzie and Lu Pulici from Italy.
