We built our studio on a $500 budget!I sure hope this guide has been of some help to you and aided in your creative process thinking about a new studio layout where you create amazing videos. If you're dedicated to using video as a medium for communication then creating a professional background becomes imperative to your mission. Just remember it takes time to develop your style. Maybe, starting with a green screen is your best option as it allows you to try limitless configurations with chroma keys. In fact, our live show now includes a balanced mix of green screens (to create a virtual set) and a real set used inside the virtual set (kind of overly complicated right)? Try new things. Test, test and repeat And look around to see what other people are doing in your space and online. Dont be afraid to copy a good idea. Heck Copy as many good ideas as you can find. Pin all your good ideas together on a board and start to think about how you can create the best possible background for your next studio!

The Creative ProcessI never thought I would become a serious Pinterest user but for saving ideas from a designer perspective the platform is perfect! Everyone has a different creative process. We decided to use Pinterest and share a board to pin ideas during the design process. As you can see we had a couple of different ideas for background colors, decor and knick-knacks to give the space a finished look. Here are a couple of ideas to think about.
What is your core message?Who is your audience?What do they respond to?What physical object reinforce your message?
Dream Studio for Video BackgroundsBackground - You want your background to make your talent pop! Vinyl Prints - Vinyl printing is becoming easier and more affordable than ever before. We had our 10x8 foot wall space printed and installed for less than $300!Shelves - Shelves are obviously great for placing different items on. There is no easier way to change up your live show background than placing different objects on a shelf. Check out the pictures below for a couple ideas:
A video background for video markersForeground- A foreground can be a nice place to put products and other items on displaySimple Desk - A simple bar height desk is always a good option. For us it provides storage and a place to hold a computer screen which we use as a Confidence Monitor (more on that later)A Bar Stool - For lower budget sets you can use a barstool without any desk. You can simply deliver you video in front of a nice background as many professionals do.
Creating a Video Background is fun!Your on-set talent is perhaps the most important part of the set. Our job is to make sure our set does the talent justice and highlights their performance. When planning for your talent the best thing to start with is your main camera frame. Once you have determined which camera you will be using for your main camera shot, use it to frame out your subject.
Also, consider if your talent will be center in most cases or off center with an additional interviewee. Taking a few pictures from your main camera location in the design phase can help a lot as you layout shelves and other placements.
