As many of you may know, I am new to the game of filmmaking. With that being said, while I am in the process of writing my first screenplay, I would love to start making music videos because frankly nowadays, I look at music videos and get instantly upset because they are not what they use to be back in the days. I remember when the video was just a story view of the ACTUAL song. Now I would love to start seeing how I would direct my movies by making music videos. I love music just as much as I do movies and therefore I know a lot of independent artists that are really good.
Now that you know what I want, can anyone give me any ideas: how do you get started? Do you go to the independent artists only? I am really good friends with recording artist Montell Jordan and he is releasing a new album that drops this month. Seeing that he is signed, is he "off-limits" to me because I am so new? Do you write a script just like you would for a movie? Do you need to same equipment as in a regular production? I need to know how to get started so if I failed to ask any questions that you believe that I should know, by all means share.
As always, I than you in advance,
