Create a Music Video for Mark Knopfler

Mark is looking to provide an opportunity for the next generation of directors to create and collaborate with him on a music video for his new track ‘”Wherever I Go” featuring Ruth Moody. Read a message from Mark below on the potential collaboration:

“A creative act so often creates others. It’s often intriguing to find out what happens to my songs after they’ve walked out of the studio and into the world. I’m looking forward to seeing so many different interpretations of “Wherever I Go”.”
