History of music videos
The invention of music videos came with the introduction of film and cinema.The music industry quickly jumped on the idea of merging moving image with sound to create a visual narrative that portrays the lyrics within the song. The first music videos were produced in the 20's where by the Jazz musicians would be filmed performing and this would be used as the music video.However as technology evolved music videos became more visually interesting and have now become works of art which all sorts of editing and special effects. Some artists have become known for their performance in music videos such as Michael Jackson, his dancing and performance in his 'Thriller' and 'Billie Jean' music videos greatly influenced his success.
