Music Video Production


  • Adults (Part-time)


This online course runs for 5 consecutive Saturdays from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Course Content

This five-session course will aim to provide students with a grounding of the technical and creative skills required to shoot an effective music video. You should come with a song that you would like to visualise. This could be one of your own or from another artist.
You will need access to relevant equipment (a DSLR camera or equivalent ) with which to shoot the video - however, the tutor will be providing workshops on how to use your equipment to the best of your ability.
Once familiarised with the equipment and theoretical issues surrounding making a music video, you will not only participate in the making of a one, but also edit it, using Da Vinci Resolve. The tutor will guide you through the process and also enable you to use the software for free during the course duration.
During this course, all stages of the digital film production process will be covered, from pre-production, production and post.
You will be expected to schedule the shoot outside of the lesson time.
The course is ideal for those with little or no experience, or those wishing to brush up on their skills. It could act as a platform to take on more ambitious music video or filmmaking projects in the future.
