Professional music videos are created in a complex process involving a variety of professionals, including directors, producers, and technicians. The production of a music video typically begins with the artist or record label coming up with a concept and storyboard, which is then discussed with the director. Once the concept is approved, pre-production begins. This includes scouting locations, casting talent, and assembling a crew. During production, the director will work with the cast and crew to create the visuals and audio, and the video is then edited and color-corrected. Finally, the video is released for public consumption, often accompanied by a promotional campaign.
