Let us tell you how our tv channel works
In depth articles and films that delve into social topics by amplifying independent new voices
A series built around a collaborative process
NEW SEASON OF
We make the questions, wait for their answers, receive the footage and edit it into a video, the rest is done by the directors we’re interviewing.
This time we have a video to show you how we’ve been doing this series.
Beatriz Gouveia animated this video during an internship at Canal180 early this year.
Director ID profiles the best directors working in music videos today. In each episode, we invite directors to be a part of the process in a creative collaboration where the director has full control over how they choose to record their interview. The result is always different and unexpected. Each episode is an expression of individuality and the whole series a document of a generation of filmmakers in the digital age.
NEW EPISODES SOON
Eight new episodes will be released throughout July and August, every Thursday starting on 11 July until 29 of August, on canal180.pt and on our TV channel. The first three episodes will be launched this month, with Brook Linder, Ian Pons Jewell and Yoonha Park.
BROOK LINDER - 11 JUL
Brook Linder grew up in Missouri, later moving to Los Angeles. His childhood making home videos, and his interest in pop-culture myths, define his work and preference for making low-budget films. Throughout his career he has worked with bands such as A Place To Bury Strangers, Preoccupations, NINE INCH NAILS and Spoon.
IAN PONS JEWELL - 18 JUL
Ian Pons Jewell is a film director from London. He has established himself as one of the best directors working today due to the worlds he creates with his quirky, original storytelling. He has won recognition both for his music videos, for artists such as Paolo Nutini, Naughty Boy, Vince Staples, NAO and Valentino Khan, as well as commercial work for Finish, Huawei, Nike and Google Pixel, amongst others.
YOONHA PARK - 25 JUL
Yoonha Park is an American filmmaker based in New York. He has been directing music videos and short films since 2007 and has worked with Washed Out, M83, Liars, Preoccupations and Protomartyr. He has an interest in depicting performance in his work and has collaborated with NYC Ballet several times.
The 180ID series is Canal180’s flagship content, a series that looks into the work of creatives worldwide, offering a unique point of view of their process. In 2014, 180ID branched out into the Director ID series. Since then we made more than fifteen episodes with directors from all over the world.
In the past, we have interviewed David Wilson, who has created work for artists such as Tame Impala, Metronomy, Royal Blood, Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire. David Wilson’s episode gave us our first Vimeo Staff Pick. We also interviewed the filmmaker Hiro Murai, who directed music videos for Frank Ocean, Queens of the Stone Age, and recently Childish Gambino ‘This is America’. Besides from the music videos, Hiro Murai also directed the award winning series 'Atlanta' and 'Barry'. Kristoffer Borgli, the Norwegian director behind music videos for Todd Terje, Serena-Maneesh, Casiokids and Young Dreams. Alex Courtès, who made videos for much acclaimed artists like Air, The White Stripes, U2 and Justice. The Daniels, the duo that directed the virals 'Turn Down for What' by DJ Snake and Lil Jone, and 'My Machines' by Battles, and now has migrated to cinema, with their first feature film premiered in 2016 ‘Swiss Army Man’, and many other directors. The previous episodes of this series were released as part of a partnership with Chicago music publication Pitchfork.
