First music video I've produced

Hello there!

I directed, produced, shot and edited my first music video for a local artist with no budget, and for free. I would love to hear your feedback.

Pretty good one. Some suggestions :

1) You need to work on visual continuity. Your scenes look totally different, like shot by totally different people. Try to grade scenes in a similar fashion or make them totally different. Always light your scenes to create more depth in the image. Even simple lights setups make can make a huge difference.
2) Work on locations, the one you filmed are not interesting. Try to treat them as a human being, they will get better this way.
3) I think script could have been better. Why do you show him in TV, newspaper, street? What's the reason behind it? Maybe he should act differently on TV/news/street to make it more interesting? Right now your locations don't serve the story at all. In general I think script is the weakest aspect of this video. Think more about emotions, translate emotions into image, I think it will help you in the next productions.

Hope I helped. Good luck!

Not to go against what Andy said but its your personal artistic style if that's what you were going for then good for you. One thing I will say is the grading is pushing it at times sometimes you pushed your shadow areas too far to where the detail is missing, there's a lack of that dynamic range. Other that that its great
