The Videographers Guide is a web series documenting young filmmakers as they produce short videos for the web in a variety of genres. In this inaugural episode, the topic of music videos and their place in our rapidly-changing new media landscape is discussed with a host of industry insiders and professionals. The feature delves into the beginnings of the music video, from its role as a big-budget sales vehicle to the confusing space which it occupies now, at a time when singles, mixtapes and free downloads dominate the musical scene. Watch the video above and be sure to visit The Videographers Guide website for more information and how you can contribute to the ongoing series.
