Kevin and Richie look at music video and how important it became for selling the record it represented.

About this Event

Kevin was at the forefront of experimental sound recording and new ways of producing records. 10cc's 'I'm not in Love' being a case in point with the band recording the track using only their voices rather than instruments! After leaving 10cc Kevin teamed up with fellow bandmate, Lol Creme in both a musical and a filmmaking capacity. During the 1990s he made videos for U2, Sting, Paul McCartney, James and the Charlatans to name but a few.

Richie Smyth is one of Ireland’s most successful and respected Photographer, TV Commercials and Music Video directors. His work is recognized for it’s edgy photographic style, it’s beauty and humanity. He has made music videos for U2, The Verve, Bon Jovi and Melisa Etheridge amongst many others. In 2016, he directed 'The Siege of Jadotville' which told the true story of an Irish troop's standoff against French and Belgian Mercenaries in the Congo during the early 1960s.
