Building a Home Video Studio? Follow These Tips

Danny Greer

Want to improve the look of your videos? The following tutorials prove that it doesn’t take a lot of money to make your video projects look like they were shot in a professional studio.

Low budget productions, such as web shows or YouTube videos, often utilize simple setups. However, with a little bit of planning (and minimal investment in equipment and setup) it’s possible to give these low budget videos a high end studio look.

PremiumBeat friend and video pro Caleb Pike (of DSLR Video Shooter) recently put together a behind-the-scenes look of his studio setup. Caleb regularly shoots video tips and tutorial videos for his popular YouTube channel, often against a seamless white/gray background. Check out his behind-the-scenes video, showcasing his gear choice and equipment setup. Lots of good tips and tricks here for anyone looking to get the most out of a small studio space.

For an even MORE low-cost alternative, The Slanted Lens shares some DIY home studio hacks, including a homemade backdrop hanger (from plumbing parts) and light kids constructed from plastic buckets and a styrofoam cooler (very DIY). A few good takeaways here if you’re on a shoestring budget – but as you’ll see from the last few minutes of the video, the result is still pretty impressive.
