Musicians and Bands : Create Promo Videos Without a Video Camera

Sure, content is King…

But what if you don’t have the tools to create compelling video content? Don’t fret! You don’t need to own video production equipment or hire Michel Gondry to promote yourself and your music on the highly visual realms of YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc. Instead, use someone else’s tools.

Here are a few options:

1. GoAnimate and Xtranormal Movie Maker allow you to create animated videos by simply entering text/dialog. Here is an example, where two funny looking bear cartoons discuss writing a novel. But you could use these tools to make a short, entertaining video about your upcoming CD release party or to discuss the making of your latest album.

2. Stupeflix allows you to easily create a video slideshow of existing photos and clips. Make a photo montage of your recording experience, of your recent tour, of your favorite fans, etc.

For tutorials and examples, click HERE. If you create a video using any of these tools, upload it to YouTube and share on Facebook. But we’d love to see it too. Feel free to post a link in the comments section below.
