The music world has traveled light years from the early days of music videos when MTV and VH1 cornered the market. Multiple cameras, complicated graphics, and big hair were what pulled us into a Motley Crue video. No doubt, some serious cash flow was also part of the equation.

Okay, maybe the big hair pulled me in, too.

Regardless, getting home from school to watch MTV in an attempt to catch my favorite video and record it became a mission like no other. I wanted to be Pat Benatar mixed with a little Joan Jett but dress like Cyndi Lauper, too. And I wanted to be in a high-tech video that made me look just as awesome and powerful as they did.

Little did I know during my dreamscape that the landscape of making a music video would change.
