Final Music Directors

  1. 1. Music Video Directors What is a music video? A music video is a promotional tool for an artist. It sometimes serves to bring attention from a label, but more often it is a starter for CD sales or artist song downloads. A hit video can do a lot for the director but its primary goal is to serve the music artist and make them achieve higher sales and promote them to the audience. What do music video directors do? Music video directors are responsible for storyboarding and composing a shot-by- shot vision for the music video. They must listen carefully to the song and synchronize their video with the rhythm of the song. Music video directors must collaborate with the production crew and the actors to create a unified music video. A director is responsible for determining how the film moves, sounds and looks, as well as for the performances of the actors.
