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?
