Music videos are something with which almost everyone is in love with. Most of the population these days is into music videos. Everyone enjoys watching a video and that too with your favorite song in the background is like the icing on the cake. Well for a common person like us, a music video is a music video only and we never think beyond it. So we actually don’t know that there are different types of music videos, yes, you heard it absolutely right. There are many different types of music videos based on the elements they show or the way they are being represented. We all have seen almost all these types of Music Video Production but just never gave it a thought that they all are of different kinds. So let’s have a look at the various types of music videos.
Performance Music Videos – These are the oldest version of music videos. These are the staples. Any music video that you watch, which has some performance going into it, is a performance video. The performance could either be an artist performing a song like or it can be a singer performing his song in front of the audience like a live performance as the singer does in coke studio, or a singer singing in a recording studio with hell lot of musical instrument, etc. All of these types of videos are the performance videos. But they all are not same. They all are different in many ways, like doing a performance live is completely a different thing than acting in a song in a place which is appropriate for the song. So, how the video is going to be shot? What kind of performance is ongoing in it? Where is it going to be shot? There are many such questions to be answered before shooting a video. The best part of the performance video is that they can suit anybody, any artist, with almost any situation. There can be a performance video for a whole group performing or can be for a solo performance as well.
Narrative Music Videos – Narrative music videos are those music videos which tell a story with the music or song ongoing. The music video which has a story from the very first word till the end is a narrative music video. As you are narrating a story through the music video, hence the name is given. In such type of music videos, a complete story will take place. It will have a starting, middle and an end. Now there are cases where sometimes these stories are related to the song in the background and sometimes it’s totally unrelated.
Concept Music Videos – Interesting name, isn’t it? Well, this one is the most difficult one to explain. Just think it as a video which shows the artist’s feelings or expressions or viewpoints. I think this was the simplest way to understand the concept music videos. They generally have a concept or a thought or an idea ongoing with the music video. It could also be a real or original story and most of the time; the lyrics have nothing to do with the story or with the concept.
Lyric Music Videos – Lyric music video is something with which the population is obsessed with these days. Before getting the official video of a song, people upload the lyric music videos these days. This type of video contains the lyrics of the song written in the video and the song is being played in the background. This is something really very popular these days. A few years back, the concept of movie or song picture in the foreground and song in the background kind of videos were very popular. But now, the lyric music videos are in demand.
Animated Music Videos – If you do not have any other option, go for an animated music video. These are very popular now. Also, it gives you a hell lot of ideas to think and implement. It will also show the creativity that you are capable of doing. You can animate any of the above-mentioned kind of videos. You can either make it an animated performance video or can go for an animated storytelling or narrative video. This is something which can fit with anything.
So, these were general types of Music Video Production.
