Miming

Every artist who makes a music video will employ lip-synching in their video unless it is a live recording. There are also examples of videos where people other than the

artist lip-synch as well.

One Take/Shot

To make one several special techniques are used. Such as changing stage props, actors and costumes that are not in the shot, also shooting other parts before to

be played on video screens. Although mostly they are just the artist going through the song one in a continuous way, as in such videos as Yellow by Coldplay.
