IDFLM 2500 Music Video & Commercial Editing

Music videos are a fun and compelling way to enhance a song, and the best videos often create a new visual synthesis with the song they illustrate. This course will use the music video format to explore story-telling and commercial editing techniques to produce visually compelling short videos. We will watch short films, music videos and other forms of experimental and commercial editing, going deep into the history of the music video as we make our own.
