Music Videos

I know I know no music talk here. However this is a non related question about music videos. Why is it that no guitars are ever plugged in? I understand they usually are not playing a live track. But couldnt they at least leave a cable plugged in or something to make it seem more real? The only thing I can come up with is the cords might not be able to be transfered to an image if they are doing the green screen thing. I have no idea about making videos, but Im willing to bet somebody on here knows what the answer is to this question. So, Im curious of why this is cause I like learning stuff. Thanks!!

Re: Music Videos

With all stuff happening like make-up, lights, scrypt and some (oYo) around the set, they just forgot it and that's rock & roll

Some videos actually do have cables and or wireless systems attached to guitars. However, by and large, when shooting a video the last thing you need are cables running wildly to have a chance to get caught on something and ruin what would otherwise be an expensive moment. They are an unnecessary extra to the shot. Also a cable could distract the viewers eye from what the director wants you to focus on. The bottom line is the directors vision either includes them or it doesn't. It's not about what the band wants, or feels their song is about (for the most part, although I'm sure there is a small percentage of exception). Same reason a magician does something spectacular with his right hand to avoid you seeing what his left hand does.

Re: Music Videos

I suspect safety is also a reason. Video shoots can be long and repetitive; perfect conditions for an accident. Having a big-time rock star trip over a cable and break their arm could result canceled concerts, canceled public appearances, prolong expensive recording time, you name it.
That and a video probably looks better without this whole mess of black cables flopping around.

Re: Music Videos

The biggest reason is they forget! Tripping is one thing but that's only if you use normal cords on the ground. Usually what we do is take a short cord, plug it in, then put the other end wrapped around a belt loop if a baggy shirt is worn...instant wireless. My opinion...it's really tacky to pretend to play in a video with no cord.

Re: Music Videos

Eh music videos don't do it for me anyway, as soon as I was old enough to learn that they aren't really playing I'm always really disappointed when I see them
