Rolling Stone Music Video

The New York Film Academy has joined forces with Rolling Stone, one of the most respected magazines covering the music and entertainment industries to train the next generation of music video creators.

The Four Week Rolling Stone Music Video Workshops give students the opportunity to make their own music videos in a hands-on, intensive program. Taught by professional music video makers and experts, students learn how to conceptualize, work with a record label, collaborate with a musical artist or band, produce, shoot, direct, and edit their own music videos.

By its very nature, the music video is stylistic, expressive, evocative, and free of many of the constraints of standard narrative filmmaking. Making music videos can be a great proving ground for aspiring film and television directors helping theme develop a personal style. Accomplished filmmakers, like David Fincher (Se7en), Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich), Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), Michael Bay (Transformers), McG (Charlie’s Angles), and Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) began their careers by making music videos. And established directors like Martin Scorsese, Michael Apted, and John Landis have chosen to direct music videos as a way to explore the possibilities of the medium.
