Can You Film a Music Video By Yourself?

Saturday, October 28, 2017

I did a cover of《快接電話 Answer The Phone!》by Joyce Chu a few months ago and it got shared by VS Media Taiwan just now! Really thankful :)

This cover took me great pains to create because I don't have a keyboard at home. I used to use the keyboard in my hostel when I was still in NUS, but I have since graduated and moved back home. I do have a piano at home but when I do recordings I prefer using a MIDI keyboard so that I can edit the notes. 

For this video, I typed out all the music on the laptop keyboard. I'm serious hahaha I don't know how I got the patience to do all these... But I guess I was feeling very free after graduation =p

It took me a few days to finish producing the music. It isn't fantastic but I tried my best. I learn everything via online tutorials and rely on practice, which is to keep posting covers, to improve.

Anyway after creating the music, I started to plan the music video. I typed out all the scenes I wanted to film on an excel spreadsheet which looks like this:

"Bread, bolster, keys, shampoo" LOL I put in effort to think of the props okay

I NG-ed so many times because I couldn't grab the props properly hehehe but it was fun

Anyway, I took about 4 hours to film the video. I did everything on my own, meaning I put my camera on a tripod to film myself. I would press record on the camera, play the music on the laptop, then get ready in position to sing the lyrics hahahaha 自導自演

It's quite troublesome to film myself because for every single scene, I have to re-adjust the tripod to a suitable height and angle. Thankfully my sister was there to help me film the final part of the song where I did a bit of acting :)

So "Can you film a music video by yourself?" The answer is yes! 

It's definitely better if you have a team to help you produce the music and film the video. The quality will be so much better. However, if you really want to do it on your own, it is possible.

If there is a will, there is a way!
