You want to make good quality broadcast video, but you don't have a lot of money. Where do you start? Couple tips, number one, you don't have to go out and spend fifteen, twenty thousand dollars on a camera, especially these days. With DV being so cheap and affordable these days, you can go out and you can buy yourself a two or three thousand dollar camera and you could create broadcast quality video. Number two, make sure your lighting is good. Lighting is important. You could have a cheaper camera, but have perfect lighting and it will appear to be broadcast quality. You could also hire a production company. If you hire a production company that will save you from having to go out and buy broadcast quality cameras and equipment. Well, you can find out what types of equipment that production company has to offer and hire them based upon the quality of their equipment. The other thing you could do, is instead of going out and buying all your broadcast quality equipment, rent it. Pre-production is ninety percent of your production so if you take the time and have your scripts laid out and know exactly what you want to produce, set your shooting days aside, go rent your equipment, take a day or two, and you have your equipment for your days that you need to shoot and then it's just part of the postproduction process after that. So you don't need your cameras and your lighting and everything else. All you need is your editing bay. So those are some ways to create broadcast quality video footage when you're on a budget.
