Music Videos during the Coronavirus, What to do?

Why not try a DIY music video during the corona virus? Or maybe a stock music video?

We are currently living in a strange time, where its hard to know what will happen day by day. Listening to government advice, we are to distance ourselves from one another, and self-isolate in order to help prevent the spread of covid-19. However, with most places closed for the near foreseeable future, this means that many industries will be impacted, and most prevalent to us is the music and music video industry.

You may have had a previously planned music video, that would have helped boost yourself on social media, however, this doesn’t mean that all videos have to stop, and in fact you can do a lot by yourself, even at home! There are many tutorials you can follow online, even some we have previously created, but there are a few key tips that you should follow.

Firstly, you don’t have to have a complex video to stand out, so you can even make a really good location in your bedroom, or in your back garden! Set up your camera (or even your smartphone), be in a good position in front of it and sing your heart out! If possible, recording your voice with a separate microphone, and syncing this while editing, will help with the audio quality of the production. If you are a complete novice at video making, there are many easy softwares online that you can use, or if you are filming on your phone, just use a free App like ‘VivaVideo’. You dont need to overthink the video, a simple one angle, one shot will be suffice. Remember you fans like you to always be authentic, so less is sometimes more.

Secondly, good lighting can help tremendously in making your video look professional. If the sun is out, you’ll have a perfect natural light source, but alternatively you can use indoor lighting, as long as you ensure your face is filled with light!

And finally, if you want something to stand out on social media, but don’t have the means or time to record a music video, try stock footage! We have a wide variety of stock music videos readily available on our website, including a built-in video editing software to make the process as simple as possible.

Sometimes using stock video can eliminate the risk, cost and time when making a music video. At least you can achieve a high end professional look that can represent your brand. This is a good way to test the market with your music and start building a fanbase.

Here is a great example of one of our stock music videos:

Hopefully these tips help you to continue to stand out and promote your music, and we hope everyone stays safe and healthy over the coming weeks! Check out this video below for our top 4 tips when making your own DIY music video.

Highly recommend Budget Music Videos. I recently worked on one of their shoots and had the best time! Director Loraa White is amazing at what she does - professional, extremely creative and so much fun to be on set with.

It was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with Loraa and watch her at work while shooting a music video for Equal Bounce. I came along to snap some behind the scenes images and felt extremely welcome and was made to feel like part of the team straight away. Loraa is unbelievably talented, would recommend Budget Music Videos in a heartbeat, very professional and creative with just the right amount of fun.
