A. Michael Baldwin's film career began as a teenager when he had starring roles in films such as Kenny & Company and Phantasm. Now an adult, he's stepped behind the camera at My First Music Video, where he yields the spotlight to the next generation of young talent.
Each session begins in the recording studio, where singers lay down vocals on a track of their choice while Michael's team captures candid behind-the-scenes footage.
Once the song is ready to go, video stars film a performance inside My First Music Video's studio, which is furnished with a choice of backdrops. Next, the singer and Michael's crew film scenes at up to four indoor or outdoor locations. Approximately 10 days after the four-hour shoot, Michael sends a final cut of the high-definition clip, rather than projecting the video into the night sky to summon all talent agents.
