Since I was a little kid, I've always loved television. I would sit around and fantasize about how great it would be to be able to make television on my own. With the development of MTV my focus changed from TV shows to music videos. They combine my two favorite forms of entertainment: television and music. So obviously, when I had the opportunity to take a filmmaking class in high school, I jumped at the chance to fulfill, at least on a minor scale, my lifelong dream of making my own music video. It is the knowledge that I gained in that experience that I'm writing about today. It is my sincere hope that by using my first experience as a filmmaker as a frame of reference for the process, I will be able to help you create your own music video.
