Backdrop means scenery in the background and it is an essential part of videography in Singapore and everywhere else in the world.
If the video shoot is not on a destination, then videographers create a setting or atmosphere where they can easily mimic the theme of the video.
Let’s say that the clients want a video shoot of beach and seashore, but they do not have quite the budget for such destinations. Or even if they have, they do not have the time to manage destination video recording, so videographers opt for backdrops that help them recreate the same atmosphere like the one on the beach.
Keep scrolling as I reveal some of the backdrop video shoot ideas that can add seven stars to your work.
Creative Backdrop Ideas and Tips for a Remarkable Video Shoot Project
Here are some DIY backdrop ideas for your next project in videography Singapore.
Feathers, blankets, and fluffy clothes for a dreamy background
If you like taking photographs or recording videos in a dream environment, then nothing works better than feathers, a few blankets on the floor, and fluffy clothes here and there.
This idea works best for people who often work for clients who like hosting parties but have run out of ideas to create a theme that works well with the mood of the gathering.
Not only the idea will give you an edge over your competitors, make your photo backdrops using the soft and dreamy accessories you have. There are so many things you can create with the things I have mentioned before. You can even make a blanket fort and throw in some fairy lights to set the mood for the shoot. If you are up for shopping, get different shades of the same colored blankets, go crazy with feathers, and create a dreamy background wall.
White, green, and blue silk cloth for beachy feels
If you are preparing for a video shoot that requires a beachy background, nothing can be better than flow silk in white, green, blue, and all the ocean-like colors.
If you have fairy lights anywhere lying in your studio – even better! In case you don’t have any, I would recommend getting some because it will help you with all the ideas I have shared in this list.
Put your artwork on the display
Videography is an art, one that requires deep thinking and connection making.
And, I am a personal fan of art mash-up.
Creating this backdrop is super easy – ‘how’ if you ask, well, all you need to do is get your artworks lying in the corner of your studio and set them up in the background. No matter if they’re photos from other projects or your portfolio work, create layers of your work on the wall, and you are done.
This backdrop is perfect for bold shoots, you can show that you are confident about your work, and you’ve no fear of displaying it.
Newspapers, crepe papers, and much more
Background made up of newspapers, crepe papers, and other such recyclable papers are perfect for out-of-the-box video recordings.
Once you have collected everything, the next step is to grab a pair of scissors and start getting crafty. Cut random shapes from triangles to circles, squares to rectangles, and everything else that you like. Try different sizes of the same shape and stick them on one another on the wall. You can even get a cardboard sheet and paste those shapes on it to make it more portable. This way, you will not have to do the whole wall, when you are done, just get rid of the cardboard sheet.
