HOW DO I MAKE A VIDEO AND GET IT PLAYED AT MAJOR NETWORKS LIKE CMT, TCN, heartland?

Music Video Budgets

Music videos are a powerful marketing tool to help artists showcase their talent and uniqueness and can also spawn a buzz in the industry to help you gain exposure. Once you start receiving airplay on radio stations and start mailing your professional press kit to record labels, usually this means you are ready to make a music video.

Where Do We Start?

  • Choose a music video production company you feel comfortable with, make contact, and present yourself and music to them.
  • Provided the production company wants to be part of your project, a series of meetings and calls will take place between you in order for them to¬†present you with one or a few ‘music video treatments’.
  • Each treatment will be accompanied by an estimated budget ranging from a couple thousand to hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on the treatment, which format it is in (digital video, 16 or 35mm), and several other variables. It is up to you to decide which treatment is preferred taking into account the actual ideas and the budgets attached to them.
