Throwback Thursday-Making the Video (1999-2011)

Going behind the scenes in Hollywood has fascinated audiences for generations.

Making the Video was a staple of MTV’s schedule from 1999 until 2011. At the start of the episode, the director explains the concept of the video. Then the viewer watches as the artist(s) film the video. At the end of the episode, the completed music video makes its debut.

Making the Video was part behind the scenes look and part publicity for the band or the artist who was featured in the particular episode. But it worked because it showed how much work it took to put together a three or four-minute music video. It was a fun program to watch.

I recommend it.

  1. This sounds really cool! I cant imagine how it would go now though. They would have to focus more on the actual creation and less on the meaning because some music videos really don’t have one
