A huge congratulations to our Director Andy Hines, whose video for Logic feat. Damian Lemar Hudson “Black SpiderMan” nabbed a nomination in this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
The video celebrating acceptance and pride is nominated in the Best Fight Against the System category. Previously titled Best Video With a Social Message, the category was reintroduced to the 2017 MTV VMAs to reflect the audience’s passion and activism around social justice issues such as environmental justice, immigration, LGBTQ equality and racial justice.
Vox says it perfectly, calling the video “an inspiring and colorful pastel musical…that speaks to the continuous debate over certain cultural figures — Jesus, Santa Claus, and Spiderman — and whether they are or should remain white.”
