I just finished a Music Video and I wanted to share some of the things I learned in the process of making it. Music videos require a lot of planning and organization but thats not the only thing that can make or brake your music video. Getting the right performance out of talent and choosing an appropriate shot composition are just a few more things that, if done right, can improve your music video quite a bit.

Here is a quick list of the things we will be talking about:
Story is just as important in Music Videos as any other form of filmmaking

Get a solid concept and share it with whoever is paying for the gig

Stay within budget and time constraints

Make a shot list for each day

Make a schedule for each position

Don’t hide away from who is paying for the gig

Get talent comfortable prior to shooting in order to get the right performance

More movement in wide shots – Less movement in close ups

Roll as much as you can. You may get the right expressions and movement from talent in between takes or during a rehearsal.

Experiment and be creative

Match the mood of the song with camera movements

Cut to the groove of the song but not necessarily to the beat.

COLOR IN POST
Grade your footage to the tone of the scene
