MUSIC VIDEOS 101

This video was recorded at the October 22nd session in Calgary.

Video is king once again. What impact does a music video have on an artist's career? How much should a video cost? DIY vs. a high production budget? How does an artist find the right director and team to work with? How does an artist promote a video? Does a video have any uses beyond the obvious ones?

Calgary Panel Above: Glen Erickson, Doug Cook, Amanda Schweers (Amazing Factory Productions, Vancouver), Liam Cormier (Cancer Bats, Toronto).
