The budget for their latest video? $8,000. He says this is normal.
This is a well known signed band mind you, not someone crying poor and making videos with fan donated money.
Maybe Palmer should make a couple of $8k videos and save everyone $12k in the process.
Isn't this kinda the same for albums? There are people recording albums for a lot less than what was once the going rate..
But if you have the resources you can spend anything you like even with donated money, if she wanted to make a video on 35mm film on location on every continent well it will cost and why not?
