African music is becoming mainstream with the rise of genres such as Amapiano and Afrobeats to dance floors, daytime parties, festivals and gatherings around the world. Among the ranks of directors who organize the visual interpretation of African music; Director Kborn Qudus Olaiwola, is an often quiet figure who charted a path distinct from his contemporaries.

Starting out in the perpetually bristling clusters of Surelere, Lagos, Nigeria as a phone repairman in his uncle’s workshop, Director K’s curiosity led him to believe he could shoot videos on his iPhone. “I used to get super crazy about iPhones, I used to make iPhones do things that you normally couldn’t do,” he says OkAfrica with nostalgia.

Raised in the slums of Shitta, Surulere and Lagos – the home of the Afrobeats pioneer Assistant—Director K found a neighborhood artist named CO decoating, and tried his hand at making a music video from the lens of his iPhone. “It wasn’t much. It was just something in the hood that I shot with a few people.”

Now, in the parking lot of a lush apartment in Lekki, Lagos, Manager K regales me with stories of his trip while leading me to a modest swimming pool. The creative arts dropout saw his work nominated for Video of the Year at the Soul Train Awards, and he won a NACCP Image Award and Best Music Video at Nigeria’s most prestigious awards show, The Headies.

Last year director K shot the music video for Wizkid’s Time-assisted “Essence,” arguably the song of summer 2021, while hemming videos for “Onyeka” and “Wonderful” off Burna Boyis a Grammy winner twice as big album. He also curated visual renditions for other Afrobeats pioneers davido, Wild Tiwa, as well as for the new class of Afrobeats superstars: Omah Lay, Fireboy DMLand Rema.

The 28-year-old director’s visual for Rema’s “Calm Down” is the fastest of any Afrobeats video to amass a hundred million views on Youtube, hitting the mark in five months.

Known for his picturesque portrayals and cinematic approach, Director K has extended his directing skills to television commercials, working with Africa’s largest cable service, DSTV, and printmaking. Skeptaof Havana Club, among many others. For now, the reclusive director is focused on creating world-renowned visuals while advocating for recognition of the cinematic workforce and structure within the African film industry.

How did you become director K? Where does the name come from?

Director X was everywhere at the time. He was a big part of my inspiration. K represents Qudus in a sense.

What is the video you really wanted to shoot? The one you really looked like “I have to shoot this one!”

A video ? I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this, but I was going to shoot a video for Coffee‘s “Shine” but things didn’t work out due to travel restrictions.

You shot your first video on an iPhone. How was this process? Did you intentionally want to start shooting videos at the time?

The process was basically me freestyling. No, I never intended to shoot music videos. I used to fix phones. I just thought, how can I film something with my iPhone? Then I shot a video for CO decoating. I doubt you know him. It didn’t turn out to be anything big; it was just something in the hood with a few people.

How did you switch from recording on iPhone to Director K?

It took me a while to start telling people I’m a director because I don’t like to tag myself with something I’m not sure yet. I had to do a lot of research because I didn’t go to film school.

Photo courtesy of director K.

Have you ever attended film school?

No, I just felt like I could take pictures with a DSLR because that was the next thing I could switch to from my iPhone. Everything you want to know is on the Internet, like everything.

Why music videos?

With music videos, you can experiment. There are no rules, you can mess up and look like that’s how you planned it. In the cinema, if you make a mistake, it will certainly show.

What video was your first big break?

“Deal” by Teni. People felt like it was shot in South Africa. When “Case” fell, everyone was like “Is this really Lagos?” When “Sensima” band Skibii fell, people started blowing up my phone.

You’ve worked with the biggest names and been on some of the biggest stages. What are you waiting for next?

I’m looking for more challenges. Now that Afrobeats is global, the next phase is to go global with the visuals.

What is your work that you are most proud of?

I think “Suzana” by Jump Ground. When I was shooting this video, I was literally dancing. The first cut of the video was the final release; there was no change. I’m very proud of Essence too. There have been times when our artists have traveled to work with foreign directors, but it’s different now. They work with local directors, and the directors deliver.

What is the biggest challenge as a video director in Lagos?

The biggest challenge is not having enough options in terms of cinematographers, lead AC, gaffers and other technical roles, and that’s because only directors get attention. People forget that there is a whole team. You don’t have to be a director to earn that much as a director. At the Headies, there is now a category songwriter of the year. They are creating more categories related to music, but none for visuals.

Don’t you think it’s because we don’t have proper music-related movie awards?

Exactly! That’s the thing. I think an organization should put that in place. I can’t be the only person to be recognized. It makes no sense because other people should also be recognized. People might still remember that I shot ‘Essence’, but people who worked on the ‘Essence’ video, you might not remember because there’s no organization giving those people credits.

What do you want your legacy to be?

I don’t want to be forgotten. I want to have a very strong impact. Fela is immortalized, even outside of Afrobeats, outside of Africa. This is the dream, this is the goal. That’s why I give my all in every project I work on because I don’t know when or where it will show.

Streit has been leading professionally for about seven years. A childhood passion for home videos stayed with him all the way to film school where he honed his craft at Chapman University. After graduating in 2015, Streit freelanced for TMWRK management, which saw him direct music videos for Diplo, Major Lazer, Jack U and Dillon Francis. Simultaneously, Streit freelanced at an advertising agency, creating short animated advertisements for Apple Music. His professional training, industry experience and growing resume led to more contract work, but the real retention of his own visual style and aesthetic came from working directly with fellow musicians, including Shakewell, Zack Villere and Jim-E Stack, creating videos that defied expectations. management teams and labels while attracting the attention of industry peers.

Ryland Burns, Stink’s US EP and music video manager, said: “I discovered Dan’s work a few years ago and was immediately blown away. All of his films offer this strange, distorted, out-of-the-box view of reality that I’ve never seen before. On top of that, Dan embodies a refreshing do-it-yourself, self-starter mentality – directing, producing, editing and doing visual effects all by himself. He approaches every project with a modern perspective and more recently has shown an insane natural ability to confidently and seamlessly adapt his unique filmmaking workflow and process to the commercial landscape. It’s been really exciting and rewarding to watch him grow as a director, both from afar as a fan and now as a close collaborator. We couldn’t be more excited to portray him for commercials and music videos at Stink and be a part of his wild world.

Blake Powell, Global Head of Film at Stink, added: “Dan’s ‘Glimpse of Us’ is one of the most gripping and original music videos I’ve seen in a very long time. His work is refreshing, experimental and captivating.

YouTube is the most popular video streaming platform in the world. Millions of people use it daily to consume their favorite content.

However, having such a large user base also means that even minor issues can end up affecting hundreds of thousands of people.

YouTube users report lower audio levels or quality

According to reports, many YouTube users experience lower audio levels or quality on music videos on the platform (1,2,3,4,5).

This affects their experience as the sound is muffled specifically when the voice of the videos is playing.

YouTube recently changed the “Volume/Normalized” setting to “DRC” (Dynamic Range Compression), which seems to be the cause of this issue.

Source

@TeamYouTube is there a way to change DRC for clips? Some settings were changed or reverted to DRC 3 days ago and I can’t find a way to revert them. It makes music videos look horrible.
Source

When I upload my song to YouTube my song volume is a bit lower than the original export, I don’t know why maybe because it has to do with my setting needed for YouTube standards or whatever it is, but I noticed that most famous artists have a pretty loud volume on their song on Youtube. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Let me know as soon as possible. Thanks.
Source

Interestingly, the lower audio quality issue only occurs when users are logged into their YouTube accounts. When they try the same video clip while logged out of their account, the issue is not present.

Various troubleshooting methods such as logging out and back in to the account, uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome, and adjusting various Windows sound settings also don’t work.

Potential workaround

Unfortunately, the YouTube team has not officially acknowledged this issue. But in the meantime, there is a potential workaround which is to use YouTube in incognito mode.

Of course, this is in addition to playing music videos when offline, which isn’t the most ideal solution but is still useful for now.

We’ll keep an eye on it and update this article if and when YouTube recognizes the issue and fixes it for good.

As Alphonse Pierre writes in his Listening Journal interview with actor Shannon Thornton: Shannon Thornton has prepared for her role in P-Valley, the Starz comedy-drama about the lives of dancers at a Mississippi strip club called the Pynk, really immersing itself in Southern rap, especially New Orleans rap. “I was doing a lot of research, but it was Juvenile and the Hot Boys that drove me crazy,” she said on Zoom. “Now whenever we want to have a good time in my trailer, I put on Juvenile.”

Southern rap is the backbone of P-Valley, which launched its second season earlier this summer. From regional classics to little gems that will get you out of Shazam, the soundtrack makes the place feel like it’s lived in. This season, some of the memorable needle drops have included “Lock Em in Da Trunk” by DJ Zirk and Rick Ross. “Hustlin”, accompanied by a guest appearance from New Orleans rebounding legend Big Freedia. Meanwhile, one of the characters on the show is a rapper named Lil Murda — played by J. Alphonse Nicholson in a breakout role — and the original songs he performs aren’t actually that great.

MUSCATINE — Filmmakers can rejoice as a local annual event makes its big return to the big screen.

From November 3-5, Muscatine will hold its 7th Annual Independent Film Festival, featuring what is expected to be a wide range of short films from multiple genres and, for the first time, music videos.

Open to both creators and cinephiles alike, the Muscatine Independent Film Festival (MIFF) once again acts as a way to celebrate film and musical achievement, according to festival founder Chad Bishop.

At present, 43 films have been submitted to the festival, although this number is expected to increase over the coming months as the final deadlines approach. When asked how it felt to bring the event back after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 concerns, Bishop said he was excited, adding that he found positives in taking such a long break.

“I think the good part of it all is that coming back after two years kind of supercharged my motivation and gave me time to learn new skills and new relationships when it came to the theatrical side. things. My interest in lighting and theater has grown steadily,” said Bishop.

In addition to the new “Best Music Video” category, all entries of which will air between films with some of these music videos accompanied live, guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy the event’s new venue.

Taking advantage of the Muscatine Performing Arts Center, formerly Central Middle School’s auditorium, this year’s festival will display all entries on a 300-inch projection screen, allowing for a true theatrical experience as well as more space for guests can sit back and enjoy all the entries submitted.

“The most important thing at a film festival is the theatrical experience of the screen,” Bishop said. “Now that I’ve acquired a big enough screen, I’m 100% confident that visiting filmmakers will place this festival among all other premier venues in Iowa.”

Fans of the festival can also rest assured that several familiar MIFF categories will once again be featured at this year’s festival. This includes the Micro-Short category, which challenges filmmakers to think creatively by telling a story in less than four minutes, and the M&M (or Murder, Mayhem and More) category.

Local filmmakers will also be honored with the Best Local Film award and the Best Iowa Film award. Although the event is meant to be a celebration of all participating filmmakers and independent filmmaking in general, Bishop was keen to acknowledge MIFF’s strong support for local and regional artists in hopes of motivating their creativity and providing them with a space to shine.

“I hope that this year’s screenings will proceed accordingly. …and hopefully (the visiting filmmakers) will spend the night downtown at the Merrill and spend some money locally. My big hope (for this event) is that it will help boost the local economy and get more people to experience Muscatine as an entertainment destination – to help us stay on the map and make people think about new people not just working here but maybe even living here,” Bishop said.

The most expensive music videos of all time: Music is a branch of art that is expressed using different instruments to create intelligible sounds that are full, rhythmic and appealing to the warm The concept of music is not limited to sounds produced with instruments of special music, it also concerns the lyrical expressions made or accompanying the sounds in a sequence and harmonious tunes. The primary purpose of music, among other reasons, is to entertain. Although some music was made for other reasons such as praise, dirges, didactics and the like, its main purpose is to entertain.

Music is not a new concept and based on this fact, it has undergone huge improvements and evolutions. Music is influenced by many factors such as culture, laws, politics and many more. Music, also called a song, is usually composed by a songwriter or musician and sometimes with a team or crew known as a Band. The evolution of music has also affected musical concepts and production instruments.

In the early days of music, there were fewer musical instruments. The musicians resorted to local instruments that are readily available and rarely found to make music. As much as it is common knowledge that being a musician can be a talent, it can also be studied. The study of music and musical instruments led to the discoveries and consequent advancement of the concept. There is also no doubt how much technology has improved music and musical creation.

Music is unique to man and made across the human planet. The effect of technology on music can be seen in the development of modern musical instruments leading to the production of pure and quality sounding music. While this is a welcome development, it has also affected the cost of music production to a large extent.

Although music is an art and a form of literature, it is also a career path for many and has proven to be a very lucrative business. Making music in the 21st century is not an easy task, so also finance it (depending on the version). Music can be produced in both audio and video versions. The production cost of a video version is usually higher than that of the audio version.

Nevertheless, the cost of producing a music video varies due to factors such as sound quality, visual quality, location, crew, and quality of instruments used. Music producers and songwriters have shown dedication in interweaving the match with others to entertain and satisfy music consumers regardless of the cost.

This article will evaluate some of the 10 most expensive music videos ever made.
