Is the music video dead? If you watch MTV lately you might think so. Over the last decade we have seen the rise and fall of this art form. Some artists have used it purely as a marketing tool, others and extension of their persona. Most music videos these days live solely online, to be shared with fans or to push the envelope. One thing seems obvious, unless your Lady Gaga, most artists do not allocate a large budget for music video’s anymore. The resulting scenario is a low budget, high creative approach. It’s almost as if music videos have come full circle or maybe we are in a rebirth phase…..you decide.
