How to Make a Great Video on the Cheap

Below is a video done for the Brooklyn three-piece Pterodactyl* that does a great job at showing how a couple hundred bucks and a free weekend can produce a great video. Here we have a renegade bicycle wheel tearing through the countryside on its way to the Big Apple. Along the way the wheel manages to ride a train and subway as well as dish out some tricks with some skateboarders, all before joining a cluster of cyclists.

Further examples include the excellent new Monty Buckles-directed Pissed Jeans video which was talked about in a prior post and [to a lesser degree] the low-budget Kanye West video for "Can't Tell Me Nothing" that was done with Zach Galifianakis and Will Oldham.

Pterodactyl's self-titled LP (unofficially titled Blue Jay) is out now on Brah/Jagjaguwar.

*They have one of the coolest, yet simple, homepages I've seen in a while.
