Life on The V: The Story of V66


Challenge: Tell the story of an upstart UHF station that went head-to-head with MTV in the early days of music videos.


Solution: Capture on film the personalities behind the influential but all-too-brief life of V66, along with archival footage of the station and the Boston music scene of the 1980s.


Result: An award-winning documentary about the short but hot life of a local UHF music video station that broke local bands onto the national stage, and even beat out MTV for the broadcast rights to Live Aid. Check it out on Amazon Prime!
