As I was editing a new music video for myself I suddenly realized I could be showing everyone how to do it.
So I started recorded and explaining the process and what we have here is an honest, behind the scenes, first person look at how a music video really gets edited.
At the end you can see the finished music video.
How long did it take me to complete the New Level Music Video?
I shot 2 music videos in the same day.
One for an All The Way Up Remix I did and one for the New Level Remix I did.
The New Level video took me about 10 hours to edit fully.
The Novi Novak – All The Way Up video took me about 2 hours tops.
I was in a super creative mode and really really really loved my new level remix so I put a shit load of effort into making it amazing.
Plus I’m a perfectionist…. so even when I thought I was done I kept editing it and editing it every time I would watch it. I’d change 1 or 2 frames or test this and test that to see what worked best. Replace other footage and try new things. That’s why it took 10 hours.
The All The Way Up Video was easier because I decided to make it a lyric music video.
This way I didn’t have to make a separate lyric video for All The Way Up like I did for New Level.
How long does it take to edit a music video?
Usually about 4-5 hours after you get the hang of editing a music video.
It gets easier and easier and faster and faster the more you edit. Don’t worry! Like anything else, greatness comes with practicing and focus.
