Create a professional looking studio for under $200.  Tips to get you started on YouTube

Join me for a tour of the Trail Sage studio and other helpful tips. You might be surprised at how inexpensive and simple my setup actually is.

And while I realize my setup is not “professional”, we can still get pretty close using some creativity, a mix of household items, and some prosumer gear. But being tight on cost, as well as space, also meant this studio had to function as my office when I was not recording video.

So the question became, could we create a multifunctional studio/office for under $200? Of course this price does NOT include the camera, and that’s because this setup can work using any camera, including the one on your phone. Obviously there’s a lot more that goes into creating a good video, including editing software, scripting, and shooting b-roll however that will have to be another video.
