Music Video Workshops


NYFA’s music video workshops guide students through the process of creating original music videos from concept development to final screening. Taught by active professional music video makers and experts, students collectively learn how to conceptualize their project, collaborate with a musical artist or band, produce, shoot, direct, and edit their own music videos. NYFA encourages students enrolled in the music video workshop to take creative risks as visual artists, all while learning the most essential elements of what goes into making a music video:
  • Identify the recording artist's brand including their visual style and tone of their music.
  • Writing a treatment for the song.
  • Planning the music video in storyboards and shot lists.
  • Putting together a budget and shooting schedule.
  • Creating the overall aesthetic style of the video.
  • Planning the music video in storyboards.
  • Learning how to shoot and keep the film in sync with lyrics and editing.
Through experiential learning, students enrolled in our music video courses gain an understanding of the requirements and rigors of directing music videos, as well as the exhilaration of seeing a completed project. Workshops conclude with a final screening of all the students’ work, open to family and friends. Make your own music video with the New York Film Academy!
