Budget Music Videos in Belfast!
Budget Music Videos is currently based in three locations, including London, Dublin and Belfast, and each of these cities boast a wide range of opportunities for us with clients and filming locations, as even these locations may seem close together, they each have very different features to them! And a great example of this is with Belfast in Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland has an extensive variety of historic locations, from Harland & Wolff shipyard where the infamous Titanic was built, remains of castles and monasteries dating back as far as the 12th century, and the gorgeous untouched landscape of the Mourne Mountains. Smaller towns and villages scatter across the country, bringing places which almost seemed locked in the history of decades prior. All of these locations, plus dozens of other unique places, lend Northern Ireland to be a country with a lot of potential for unique and captivating videos.
In recent years there have been plenty of stellar examples for filming within Northern Ireland, such as Derry Girls or Game of Thrones, and several Music Videos we’ve produced have been filmed using the unique locations only available here! If you would like to browse the selection of videos we’ve produced in Northern Ireland, across the UK and beyond, check out our portfolio, where we’ve catalogued all our work for clients! https://www.budgetmusicvideo.co.uk/portfolio/

2019 was the most amazing year to date at BMV. From the successes and the downfalls we managed to launch a new website and produce hundreds of music videos at the same time. We are very proud at the content we have created and the people we have worked with. Check out the video below for a summary and examples of the challenges we have had.

Its finally here, and we are the first to provide it! Finance for your music video! Yes! At Budget Music Videos we are proud to announce we will be offering finance for any products on our website, starting at £100 minimum and £800 maximum. We are collaborating with PartPay which offers a simple and effective way of doing finance over a 6-week period. Our clients will be able to pay in small instalments over 6 weeks, instead of a large lump sum up front as usually requested by Budget Music Videos. With this finance option, you will be able to produce, film and edit your music video within this time frame and by the time you have completed your music video production your payments will also be complete. This helps musicians to put their trust in Budget Music Videos and deliver on the final music video within the 6 weeks period. It also allows musicians to spread the cost across 6 weeks, which is easier to digest.
Here at Budget Music Videos we are always trying to help musicians and make the process of music video production easier and more affordable. The best part about the finance is that its 0% interest and the musicians only pay what they have borrowed!

Working with African Musicians!
Social Integration is a big thing here at Budget Music Videos. We have worked with multiple different artist from different backgrounds, nationalities and all sorts of genres. Although we are based in the UK, our staff are from various ethnic cultivations including India, Canada and Mauritius.
Not only do we work with these artists we are able to understand and execute their visions and we have created great relationships with them, be it afrobeat artists from African or home-grown urban artist from UK to pop stars from eastern Europe we have worked with them all. www.budgetmusicvideo.co.uk
One ethnic group that have stuck with us and also grown over the years are Africans. Back in 2014 our CEO met Nigerian producer Moe Musa at a networking event. Following this event, we went on to work with a manifold of African artists and produced videos such as, Patoranking ft Tiwa Savage – Girlie O Remix, Ommy Dimpoz – Ndangushima and also worked with the likes of Davido and kida Kudz.
After this conjunction with Moe Musa we experienced an influx of African artists wanting to avail of our services. Of recent we have worked for Gospel artists as well as Afrobeat artists and we are enjoying services this market. Check out one of our most recent videos from an African Artist:
What makes a good music video director?
It is important for artists to know what makes a good music video director in order to get the best end product. At Budget Music Videos, we are passionate about what we do. We take time to listen actively to what an artist needs and we have a multi – skilled team to help musician’s visual speculation become a reality.
We feel it is important for a music video director to know the medium and be up to date with the styles of videos out there (which are constantly changing). A good video director needs to be creative in their ideas, shooting style, location scouting and editing.
A good music video director should have a good team behind them and understand they can’t do it all. It is also essential for a music video director to be able to hear a song and have a mental image of how it could be visualized, here at Budget music videos we are confident we possess all of these qualities. www.budgetmusicvideo.co.uk

Budget Music Videos got 5 nominations for 3 different music videos at the first ever Northern Ireland Short Film Awards. This was a shock to the company and we never thought we would win 2 awards on the night. This was the first ever ‘Nordies’ event and we felt privileged to be a part of it. Music Videos are usually underappreciated area of the film business, so it was amazing to see our work be recognised beside well known production companies and short films.

It was amazing to be nominated 2 years in a row, especially for the ‘Best Marketing Campaign’. Once again, the Women in Business Awards is one of the most anticipated events of the year. Just to be a finalist is an award in itself. Women In Business pride themselves on encouraging women to network and form relationships to help their careers and develop their businesses. This year we actually won the award and Budget Music Videos Director Loraa White was proud as punch, as it was the first award the company had actually won! Hopefully more to follow as the business develops over the next few years. The event itself was an amazing opportunity to meet new businesses and create new bonds with women in business. The publicity around the awards is not to be missed!
