Music is exciting, but making a music video can elevate the song to the next level.

About this Class

Music videos are some of the most moving and creative content that can be made. In this camp, we will create a music video thats sure to make any song a hit! All you need is a bit of imagination and a few fun shooting techniques that we’ll learn in this camp.

In this camp, we will break down what makes a good or bad music video, plan, shoot, and edit using smartphones/tablets.

Once we finish, we will show the videos to the class and positively critique them. There may even be a music video award at the end.
