The Polaris Prize Gala is long. Media folks like us shows up for pre-gala interviews at about 5:00 PM, and don't get out until after midnight. So we gave ourselves the noble task of distilling the entire 2013 Polaris Music Prize event - from pre-gala interviews to winner announcement - in just three minutes.
You'll see me speak to nominees Metz, Purity Ring, A Tribe Called Red, Zaki Ibrahim, Young Galaxy, and my golden egg, Metric. Will they drink my beer? Will they add me on Facebook? Watch and find out!
Sure, we went over our time limit, and yes, our plan was basically screwed when we were told that this year there was to be no filming during the event at all (to be fair, one minute of each performance is fair game), but I am fully confident in saying that we came out with the best video coverage of any awards show, ever, period.
