By thelaegotist / / Award-winning production company RSA Films welcomes Chris Clavadetscher as Executive Producer of Black Dog Films US, where he will lead the company’s renowned music video division stateside. Clavadetscher spent the last two years as a creative producer for Interscope Records overseeing film and photography for a roster of artists including DJ Snake, The 1975, AlunaGeorge, Børns and Billie Eilish, to note just a few. His new position marks a return to RSA where from 2011-2014, he was a staff Executive Producer and Video Rep. Among Clavadetscher’s credits are David Bowie’s “The Next Day” (Floria Sigismondi), Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (Declan Whitebloom), The 1975’s “Girls” (Adam Powell) and Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” (Diane Martel). Also joining the company is buzzworthy director Yoni Lappin for commercial representation in the U.S. via RSA and music videos in the U.S. via Black Dog. Lappin’s credits include Mura Masa’s striking video trilogy and nod to youth culture, “What if I go?” (nominated for a UK Music Video Award in 2016), “Love$ick ft. A$AP Rocky” and “1 Night.” His work has been praised for its authentic eclectic casting, beautiful visuals and innovative technique—for example, he used a 1:1 aspect ratio and included GIFs in “What if I go?” to bring conventions of Instagram to music video. The news was announced today by Jules Daly, President, RSA Films.
