Keep It Simple Stupid. You’d be surprised what one camera angle, one actor, and one room can do. Sometimes the best music videos don’t have to be that complicated.

Radiohead are the “King” of minimalist videos. Watch theirs below, plus other artists who have cunningly used just one-camera shot, a singular actor, with little or no visual effects.
