Music video producers wear many different hats. Music video directors often work with tight crews and need to communicate effectively with cast and crew using the many languages of film including editing, motion graphics, and cinematography. This comprehensive beginner workshop kick-starts your ability to direct and produce by giving you a broad understanding of the entire music video production process, from conception, to directing, to editing.
Discuss what goes into making a stunning treatment that effectively communicates your concept to collaborators and clients. Tackle the particular challenges of cutting images and creating effects in the service of a song.
Students will write a one-pager for a music video concept using Adobe InDesign, and use Premiere Pro and After Effects to cover basic techniques for editing video to music and creating effects.
This workshop has been designed for film students, new graduates, or anyone with little to no experience who is interested in breaking into the film or music video industry.
The workshop is structured to give participants time between sessions to practice on their own and come up with questions.
