As a music producer it’s natural my area of expertise is high quality, low cost and innovative music video production. I have shot, directed and edited over fifty music related projects. For example artist videos, nightclub promos and live events all over Newcastle, Tyneside, Northumberland and Yorkshire.
However I do know what it’s like to be a starving artist. Consequently I understand the need to stretch budgets and over the years I have become really good at it. To illustrate, the music videos below take different approaches to get the same result.
Specifically, one features a man dancing erratically at an odd (Leeds) location, the other 80s cop show footage I captured. In other words unique and arresting promos that suit the artist’s image. Above all they stand out from the crowd and cost very little to make. Other techniques include shooting with vintage lenses or using obsolete tape based cameras. Both these approaches give a distinct look for little cost.
Two more examples of low cost music videos that were shot in a few hours.
