A good video, nice song. Think variety…How about a shot of the guy’s face who’s playing the keyboard? How about a shot of a VU meter when the beat picks up? Maybe an angle from above looking down, or a real wide shot from the doorway looking into the studio? How a bout a ‘follow shot’ as his hands move along the keyboard? Also, maybe think about some creative lighting with coloured gels in the background. These extra shots usually mean shooting the same sequence 3 or 4 times, but in the end it gives you way more flexibility when it comes to editing. And like Charles Schultz said “hard cuts on the beat” work good for music videos.
