About Us

The MVi48 is a new, independent, HD music video production event. It's funded in part by a Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville's Spark Grant.

What’s the MVi48?

Composer, musician Maxwell Lee and filmmaker James Siler conceived “The Music Video 48-Hour Invitational” (MVi48) project to showcase local talent to a worldwide audience and to showcase Downtown Jacksonville to worldwide talent. Musicians and video artists will produce music videos in the SPARK District within a 48-hour period. Videos will be shown at a publicized event Fall 2016.

What’s the Spark District?

The SPARK District is a Cultural Council initiative focusing on growing the economic vitality of downtown Jacksonville through unique arts and cultural experiences.

Selecting from a competitive pool of applicants, a panel of community leaders awarded five SPARK grants to individual artists and non-profit organizations that will represent a wide variety of arts and cultural experiences.

Projects for the upcoming 2016 cycle were sought from nonprofit organizations and individual artists from the five-county First Coast area to ignite the walkable urban district with arts and culture.


MVi48 videos are produced in the Spark District of downtown Jacksonville, FL.
