Whereas the focus of a Performance Music Video is, as the name suggests, on the band or artist performing their song, a Narrative Music Video adds an extra dimension of interest by playing out a story as the song unfolds, holding the viewer’s attention not only with the music, but also with the onscreen action and story line.
A Narrative Music Video may feature members of the band or may be shot entirely using independent actors and actresses. The story line may follow the theme of the song closely, or maybe only loosely, or even not at all. The key aspect is that as well as drawing your audience into your music you are also drawing them into the story. Stories have always been a powerful way of engaging listeners and a well put together Narrative style video is a powerful way of building interest in your music.
We will spend time with you discussing your ideas and the themes you would like to cover in your video, as well as providing insights and suggestions of our own. We can discuss potential shooting locations and scenes and put together a script and shot list for your video prior to the filming sessions.
If you don’t already have your song recorded, we can help you with the recording process as well as with finding actors or actresses if necessary.
