Have an original and specific idea
Directors and artists are constantly vying for ingenuity to release the video that will make a lasting impression. With so many videos coming out every day, it's not always easy to stand out with your clip especially if you're on a tight budget. That said, it is not impossible to make a work that will find its place in the pantheon of attractive clips. It is important to have a clear idea of what you want your video to be before you start your project. It is the originality of your clip that will make the difference in this highly competitive environment. Once you have your idea, you have taken a big step. So you'll know what to focus on next.
Shorten the shooting time
The amount of time you spend shooting your video, will affect your budget. The more time you spend on location, the more money you will have to spend. So find a way to reduce the time to one day if possible. To make sure that the day is enough to shoot the video, you need to limit travel. To achieve this, you need to choose a single location to work in. In order for this location to be uniform in the clip, you need to subdivide it into several visually different spaces, with different lighting effects, different sets. By doing this, you will manage to reduce the budget of the clip considerably.
Have a well written script
The music video you want to make is a story you are telling. This story must be perfectly written in order to save you time on the shoot and above all to avoid doing things by halves. A written script keeps you away from improvisations that sometimes distort the original idea you had. After all this, it is important to have adequate and efficient equipment for the clarity of the images and the sharpness of the sound. So with a relatively low budget, you can make a clip that will make you proud.
