For the month of May, I’ve decided to break from the straight narrative to produce a music video. As much as it makes me nervous to think of producing a music video (which can be very easy to mess up or make cheesy if it isn’t done right) it also makes me excited.
Music videos have always been one of my favorite mediums because there tends to be a lot more creative freedom and risks taken in conceptualizing and producing them. Directors and artists create wonderful visuals, stories, and art to in some way compliment and enhance the music. Good music videos engage and affect the viewer emotionally and creatively. Of course, that’s when it’s done right. When it’s done poorly, you end up with bland, quickly cut shots of a band or artist performing for three and a half minutes.
Since this month is all about music videos, I’m going to be featuring some of my favorite music videos and directors all month long as my daily Favorite videos in my Twitter feed. I’ll also wrap up each week by posting them all here on the blog.
