The advent of affordable digital video cameras and desktop-editing applications, coupled with the fact that everyone knows a struggling musician, has blown the music video genre wide open. Image and audio quality, professional-level special effects, and easy distribution via DVD or the Web mean that almost any ambitious moviemaker, musician, or band manager can now have a crack at creating that breakthrough promo video.

Make Your Own Music Video reveals the entire process with techniques that apply to any hardware/software environment- from tuning up, synching up, and wrapping up to laying down, cutting down, and burning down. Readers get straightforward, practical advice on how to make cool, entertaining, professional-quality music videos. The book tackles everything from choosing and using the right kit, through rehearsing a band and dealing with inflated showbiz egos, to the nitty-gritty of synching edited video and audio tracks and compressing footage for streaming on the Internet.
