About This Class

Look, not all of us have thousands of dollars to spend on video production. But you can still get amazing, cinematic quality on shoestring budgets!

Join music video director Chrystopher Rhodes in this comprehensive class on shooting with a small budget, and learn new tools to apply to your future shoots. Whether you’re working with $80 or $800, Chrystopher’s tips will help you figure out how to prioritize your spend for maximum effect.

Video is a more accessible art form than ever, and whether you’re shooting on your iPhone, a camera you found in your friend’s attic, or something you saved up for for ages, Chrystopher’s class will give you the savvy and skill to replicate effects, maximize your set, and get the footage you want.

With Chrystopher’s clear, step-by-step instruction, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create an effective treatment for your project
  • Build a prioritized gear and shot list
  • Spot a great location and scout it comprehensively
  • Use natural light and existing setups to your benefit

In an ideal world, money would never be a factor in whether or not someone could create the art they wanted — but in this less-than-ideal world, Chrystopher’s class can help remove some of the barriers. Join in and get shooting!
