Why you should stop worrying about the music video competition
It’s no secret that many music videos are being filmed in China, a country with a massive music industry.
And while there’s no evidence to suggest the industry is in decline, the Chinese are certainly spending more money on their productions.
The number of recorded video clips in China rose by 10.4 per cent to 1.8 billion last year, according to the Chinese Association of Film and Television Producers, and is expected to double again by 2019.
The growth is largely attributed to an increase in demand from Chinese citizens for content, with a growing number of Chinese nationals becoming involved in the production of video content.
As Chinese citizens spend more money, the demand for their content is also increasing.
According to the Recording Industry Association of China (RIFCI), Chinese consumers are increasingly spending money to purchase music videos.
The agency estimates that by 2019, nearly 70 per cent of recorded videos in China will be recorded by Chinese nationals.
The demand for music videos is driven in part by the rise in the popularity of Chinese language films.
This year, a record 2.1 million Chinese-language films were released in the country, making it the fastest growing genre in the Chinese market.
Chinese films are also gaining a reputation as being “cool”, and Chinese filmmakers have been experimenting with different approaches to capturing their unique cultural references.
According the agency, the most common approach is to shoot a music video in Chinese, with an accompanying music video that follows the film.
These films can also be produced in a more traditional style, such as using an Asian accent.
In 2018, an artist named Zhang Chunming shot a music-only video for “Bubblegum” that is said to be the most viral video of the year, generating more than 20 million views on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter.
The video is still being watched today.
According another trend, Chinese actors are starting to record their own music videos as well.
In October 2018, Zhang Chunmin shot a video for the song “Bum Bye Bye” that has already garnered more than 100 million views online.
The artist also released a single version of the video for Chinese actress Jia Qingwen, with the song playing in the background.
While the music-based approach has been popular, the video also shows how video production is more sophisticated than traditional films.
The actress and the songwriter, Jiang Yu, play an all-star cast of Chinese and American actors.
The video shows Jiang Yu’s face and hands moving in a synchronized motion to the music.
In the video, Jiang’s face is hidden by a mask, which also makes it impossible to see his hands.
Jiang Yu is a regular at film festivals and has also appeared in other music videos and music videos for American and Chinese artists.
The music video for her single “Bumpin'”, which she recorded for the American label Peking Records, has garnered more over 100 million hits on YouTube.
As music videos become more popular in China as well as in other Asian countries, it is increasingly difficult for traditional filmmakers to capture the creativity that drives the creativity in the film industry.
According a survey conducted by Chinese-American film producer and critic Chen Yang, the film-makers of the future will need to create more original works, with less repetition.
In a video interview with ABC News in 2017, Chen said that if we continue to produce a lot of similar music videos on YouTube, we’ll soon see a lot more Chinese-Chinese collaborations.
He added that the more we create, the more people will find out about Chinese films and film culture.
With the rise of the Chinese film industry, it’s clear that there’s a lot to be excited about in terms of creativity.
But it’s also clear that we’re not in the same place as before.
