  2. 2. PRODUCTION. What is the role of an executive producer and a music producer? Executive producer – enables the making of a commercial entertainment product eg) music videos. May also be in charge of managing accounts and with legal issues such as copy right and following censorship laws. Music producer – producers music and allows the artist to achieve the recording which they want. What has to be considered during the preproduction stage? Before a music video has to be created the artist has to create a budget to which they can follow. This will then allow them to achieve what they want within strict guidelines. A storyboard will need to be created to plan the narrative and make sure the music video flows clearly and is interesting and easy to understand. Clothing and make up must be considered which fits in with the narrative to create a realistic, professional vibe. Casting needs to take place so any dancers/actors which are needed can fit the narrative and fulfil the needs of the video. A location is also needed as this is where the main action of the music video takes place. An example of a large, successful music video production company. Sony Music An example of an independent music video production company. RedCape productions What is the role of the director? In charge of the whole production of the music video. The director distributes jobs to all staff members, takes full control over the situation and is the person to finalise the music video in both production and editing. What is the role of the record label? To distribute the music and make it well known to the public and to attract the audience. They employ advertisers and the director in order to make the music video look as best as it possibly can. They also make sure the video is easily accessed eg) music channels and YouTube.
