So you want to produce music videos? Well a couple of things you need to know before you can just jump right in and start producing music videos. 1) You need to know how to use a camera or you need to have access to a production company and somebody with years of experience of using a camera. There are different styles and techniques that a camera person will use to make a music video that he normally would not use just shooting regular footage. If the camera guy is a sports type of sports camera guy you might be looking for a whole lot of different things and might not get as creative as the music video producer but I'll tell you this, if you want to start producing music videos you have got to know a little bit about your audience. If you are producing contemporary type of music well you might not want to be too crazy compared to as if you were producing a hip hop music video or a rap music video or even really a hard core music video. You have to know who your audience is so you know what type of style you are going to shoot. 2) You have to edit this video. Once you have all your footage whether it is Green Screen footage or out in the field, or out in the street, whatever type of footage you have gathered, you have to know how to edit it, well your editor has to know how to edit. You want some rough cuts. You want some fades, some smooth transitions, all that stuff has to fit in to your music video properly. So if it is catered to a younger crowd it might have to be more edgy, more aggressive as opposed to contemporary laid back pop type music so keep all these things in mind when you are producing your music video and number one and most importantly is practice. Practice makes perfect. Anything that you are doing when it comes to producing or editing or even just basic camera work you will always get better the more you practice.
