Minimalist Music Videos

Keep It Simple. 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. If you have a music video using minimalist techniques, please feel free to send it here.

Minimalism can help you create a stunning music video on a limited budget. In the video above, with just one actor and a lamp, the Belgian visual artist Filip Sterckx has made a hypnotic music video for “Always Home” by soul singer Selah Sue. Radiohead seem to be the “King” of minimalist videos. See other artists who have cunningly used just one-camera shot, a singular actor, with little or no visual effects.
