Directing First Music Video. Looking for writing, directing, production tips/etc.
Hey all! So I am going to be directing my first music video. It's for my band. I'm looking for tips and advice about the process of forming the idea, planning, filming, and editing/post-production. We have a concept and we're in the process of writing a solid story, script, shot list, etc. We'll be using our own talent, crew, DSLRs, lenses, local locations, etc. and I want to know what I can do to maximize our resources and make the process fun for everyone but efficient as well.
What things should I know going in?
What things did you wish you knew for your directorial debut?
How do you express your vision without sound like a jerk? I've been told that my neutral voice is harsh and critical lol.
Thanks in advance. I really appreciate it!
