We team up with @YCImaging to find out if it’s really possible to do a no budget no prep music video in 4 HOURS.

You’ve heard the story before, an artist you really love agrees to shoot a music video with you only to find out that they have no budget and need to get it done this weekend? Is it possible to make something high end? Can you still make a cinematic music video with good lighting, camera direction and locations?

Well to find out we teamed up with Chrys from @YCImaging to shoot a no prep, no budget, no location, minimal gear music video at Art Factory Studios with local New Jersey rapper Trillionaire Daz. We ran into a lot of challenges and one big surprise that you’ll have to watch to find out!

Check out the full music video and great filmmaking educationals on Chrys’ YouTube channel:
