As great as smartphones are for creating day to day social media content, there's an expectation that music videos should look professionally shot and edited.After all, they are the showpiece of your artist content.
Labels pump millions into big artists' music videos every year, in the hope thatengaging visuals can buy some precious extra seconds of a viewers time.

For independent artists, the budgets are usually a little more humble. Green screen, CGI and an army of background actors are probably out of the question! On the other hand, you have full creative control over what goes into your video, and you can still make really great content on a budget!
You can keep it as simple as performing your song in front of a couple of cameras. Alternatively, you could choose to go more abstract, or tell a story in your video, or even orchestrate an elaboratedance routine.
