History of music video

Music video has evolved a lot since it came about in 1960.

At first they were a method of simply getting the song out to a wider audience through the use of the scopitone - (early version of a jukebox) . The Beatles film 'hard days night' was the first proper music video but this was a feature length rather than 3 minute version. 

MTV evolved out of its predecessors in the year 1980 and since then music videos have become a lot more commercialised - lots of money spent on them each year.

The introduction of directors in 1992 further evolved the process of production and was the last major transformation to the videos we see today.
