Your friends love it. The neighborhood guitarist feels it’s got the potential to rock billboard charts. And surprisingly your mom loves it. But when you look at your music video there is something that is amiss. It could be the lack of great production values or a dream crew to help you realize your dreams, but don’t lose heart. You needn’t invest a lot to get great results. A few cautionary steps can save a lot of money and post production jitters.
Let the music play!
It is not enough that you have the song in your when shooting the video of it. For steps that are perfectly synched ensure that the song is heard clearly in the background. A shooting spot can resemble a war-zone! Try to tone down the swear words and gossip while recording the song. Good audio quality of your song can make synching video to the clean track during the editing stage, a breeze.
Pretend that you are synch recording
You aren’t but sometimes pretence can take you a long way! While video recording imagine that it is going to be the final version of the song. Sing out the words clearly, with all your heart and the right expressions. Miming, singing to, yourself or swallowing words can make it difficult to place the shots in the actual song. It will look out of place and tacky.
Shoot a cover first
Don’t click your tongue in distaste. Before launching your music video, jam a popular number by any famous artiste. It can help you feature more prominently on Youtube and on search engine results. Most musicians hate doing covers but there are more chances of people searching for Justin Beiber and clicking on your album, than ever can be of people using your name or your albums while searching.
Captions can work wonders
People love to sing-along. The number of Karaoke bars around your neighborhood is proof enough. If you include captions it can not only make your video look more professional it can also give people a chance to understand your lyrics. Catchy lyrics are the surest way of gaining attention. Caption those catchy lyrics and also optimize your online presence by captioning your music videos.
