Frequently asked questions
What is music video production?
A music video is a short video designed to illustrate a song or music composition. Music videos are mainly shot to be shown on TV or on the Internet. Music video production is an industry that creates music videos that are used to promote an album or a single.
What equipment do you need for a music video?
It depends on the budget and desired quality level, but here’s a sample list of equipment needed for a music video:
Video Lighting Kit
Digital Audio Recorder
Extra Batteries and Memory Cards
How much should I charge for a music video?
It depends on many factors: how much experience you have, how many music videos you have already produced, how advanced your equipment is. If you are a beginner, a good way to start is to work with a few bands for free to gain some experience. Then you can figure out how much time you spend on a video and think how much your time costs. The approximate cost of a music video may vary from $20,000 to $500,000 or more.
Is a 50mm lens good for video?
It depends on what you primarily are shooting. A 50mm lens gives a nice bokeh effect, and it’s super fast for low light. But it isn't versatile enough to capture some of the wider things. So, it depends on what you need to shoot more.
Which is better: Full-frame, APS-C, or MFT?
In terms of image quality, full-frame cameras provide the best footage. APS-C cameras have better image quality than MFT. But when choosing a camera, it’s important to consider other factors apart from sensor size.
