Mark Slater, Master of Montage

I was very impressed with the video used to introduce the 2010 Hugo Awards Ceremony — another masterpiece by Mark Slater, the fellow responsible for the superb London Calling 2014 bid video.

Images of the Hugo nominees and their works are intercut with flashes of political and scientific news from 2009 (the eligibility year), all flowing together in time to the remarkable background music.
