Animation production collective Shynola proved to be the big winners at last night’s UK Music Video Awards, collecting three awards for their video for Coldplay’s Strawberry Swing.
Shynola were awarded video of the year, best animation in a video and best rock video, while the ceremony at the Odeon West End cinema in Leicester Square, London, also saw veteran video director Kevin Godley present Martin De Thurah from Academy Films with the award for best director.
Other notable winners at the event, which was hosted by Adam Buxton, were Carole Burton-Fairbrother, who was given the outstanding achievement award while singer-songwriter Alison Goldfrapp took to the stage to hand Dawn Shadforth the icon award.
UK Music Video Awards editorial director David Knight says, “It was a great night and one that clearly emphasises the array and quality of both established and emerging talent in the UK music video business. Considering the year that they have had it was really quite moving to see Shynola sweep the board with their remarkable video for Coldplay’s Strawberry Swing.”
