Music Video Creation

You will be given the opportunity to work with professionals, and at the end of the course will produce a final commissioned music video for Mute Records.

You will gain a detailed knowledge of the professional practices involved in organising a production and an industry-relevant appreciation of the commissioning and distribution of music videos. This theoretical and analytical awareness of music video production, and of the wider industry demands, will be taught alongside aprocess of you developing your own project-specific research. Through a placement, you will go on to build a working knowledge of the skills, working practices and conventions of producing a music video.
