Why is it important to take breaks during the day? Your brain gets tired of staring at the screen and requires short recharges. Taking a few minutes per hour to look out a window, get a drink, or talk to a co-worker is all it takes to be able to refocus and allow your brain to rest and settle. When color editing, it is always surprising how when I have been color editing for multiple hours, I feel like my work looks good. After coming back from a short time out, I watch the video and wonder if someone was playing a practical joke on me with the colors.

Music videos are one of the neatest ways to release a new song to the world. Not only does it highlight the artist, it can visually set the tone for what type of music is going to be played. The shadows, colors, tones, and angles all affect the direction in which the artist wants to take the viewer.
