Music Video Production

Thanks to innovative artists such as Beyoncé, music videos are now as complex and cinematic as short films. No other medium can convey such a rich story and evoke so much emotion in such a short amount of time. If you are interested in the field of video production for music, this hands-on course will provide you with experience in both its technical and creative aspects. Learn what it takes to produce, direct, and shoot what is essentially a short film set to music. You will spend the week working in small groups to develop a video, beginning with the critical step of choosing the perfect song. Topics covered will include writing a treatment, storyboarding, creating an aesthetic concept, recording and editing digital video, keeping the video and lyrics in sync, and distributing the final product. By the end of the class, you will have gained a thorough understanding of the technical aspects of music video production, and you will have produced a music video showcasing your abilities in production, storyboarding, cinematography, and editing—the perfect portfolio piece for your college application.
