Some tips for making a great music video:
- Get the kids involved in the whole process. The kids help me pick the song, plan costumes, and make scenery (if any.) I also talk to them about what they want to do in the video.
- I make a list of shots I want to get before going out to shoot the video. Depending on their age, you may only have a short window of cooperation.
- Take LOTS of video. For this last video, I uploaded 40 minutes of video, and edited it down to a 2 and a half minute song.
- Shoot a variety of shots. Take some up close, some from a distance, and different angles.
