Part 3: Tricks & Ideas to Make a Romantic Music Video
Making a beautiful romantic music video requires you to master some basic tricks in both shooting and creating the music video.
Trick 1 - A romantic and twisted story is key to a touching romantic music video.
After studying those compelling and moving romantic stories for music videos, we've found that a romantic music video usually deploys two types of storytelling:
- Type One: Two people are in deep love, but they face tough/heartbreaking difficulties. (Such as, the boyfriend joins the army, or one mother doesn't like the other half.) Eventually, they overcome the challenges and live happily together.
- Type Two: In the story, there are 3 persons in a love relationship. One is a jackass with two relations, which makes the love story torturing and heartbreaking. The story ends vary - a breakup, forgiveness, or hatred.
Trick 2 - Shooting tricks.

Trick 3 - Editing skills.
To tell a love story, you can use the tricks of black & white to deal with that never-get-back moment photography.
Also, high-skilled videographers use a lot of white-balance editing skill, to deal with romantic video & photo and make them look more natural.
