Learn to realize your artistic vision from shoot to post-production

A course by Lyona Ivanova

What could be more inspiring than music to jumpstart your creativity? Being able to imagine and create an entire visual world from a song is exactly what Catalan filmmaker Lyona does when she directs music videos. This field allows her to express herself artistically while exploring different creative techniques and styles. Since 2004, she has made more than one hundred music videos for bands like Love of Lesbian, Amaral, Leiva, Sidonie, Lori Meyers, and Carlos Sadness.

In this course, Lyona shows you what’s needed to create a professional music video, both conceptually and artistically. She shows you what the creative process of music video production is really like: from conceptualizing the idea and writing the script, to pre-production, planning, and development of a storyboard, and finishing with the filming and editing.
