Even if you’re not making a music video, this is cute enough to download just to watch the little guys bopping to the music. Driven by your music track, the animations react – just add your audio, logo and colours.
The Versatile Grunge Trailer for Adobe After Effects has two versions, including one where you can create custom scenes, making it perfect for a wide range of music videos.
3. Music Logo
Music Logo is vibrant and stylish, with hints of MTV. Just add your text and choose your colours to get a funky logo, perfect for kicking your video off to a great start.
Glitchy and cool, this opener for After Effects manages to somehow feel both retro with its muted, matt colours, and modern: combining fast-paced transitions with geometric shape and design.
A good font can often be overlooked when putting together a video. IndieFest is a font in the style of a marker pen: chunky and rounded. It fits perfectly with indie style music, or music festival productions.
Each asset here is from Envato Elements, where you can download unlimited resources for a monthly subscription.
- You can make great videos with a DSLR camera, you don’t necessarily need a dedicated film camera or camcorder.
- Plan plan plan. If there’s a narrative then write it out, but even if you’re just filming a static band then you still need to plan out who’ll do what, when and where.
- Film the same thing over and over, from different angles. If you’re lip-synching then remember to bring something to play the song on.
- If you’re filming outside, choosing the right time(s) of day could make all the difference to your lighting.
- Can’t afford a crowd? Need to include things you don’t have access to? It’s not cheating to use stock footage.
