Sadly i’ve never got round to making a music video, unless you count media class in high school which i’m not. Have always wanted to though and find myself more and more jotting down ideas for them.
Have been compiling quite the list of late without really knowing if thats the way it works. I mean, would I need to hear the song before I can even begin to think of an idea or is it good to have idea’s that could possibly fit somewhere down the line.
Either way the ideas are flowing.
Think its something that I would definitely like to take a look at in the future. Love the idea of trying to tell a story in such a short space of time while also promoting the band and its members (Or solo artist). Seems like a fun challenge and an under rated skill set.
As a writer I always look to get drawn into the story of the song with music video’s and not always by the words. For me the MV is all about the image on the screen, the tone and mood that is set. The lyrics to the song are important but I get drawn into the the visual side of it. Obviously its completely different listening to the song on my iPod but for me the video is about the story and thats the part of the challenge I like and want to attempt.
Am getting to know a few people so who knows maybe one day i’ll have the chance, either that or decide I really do want to attempt this medium and go out there and find someone.
But its all definitely been on my mind a lot of late.
