Question: How Can You Get A Big-Budget Video Made On The Cheap?

Answer: Get a London-based company to make your video as part of a test-run.

Because that seems to be how Dallas-based Canadian rapper Freeky T got this video (screen grab above) made for his song "Tipspell (feat. S Davis)". The London-based company Eye Revolution filmed Freeky T and S Davis (and a few friends) in front of a green screen, performing their parts of the song. Later, the green screen backgrounds were replaced by various background shots the company had already amassed in creating virtual tours of clubs into which the artists never once actually stepped foot inside.

Ah, technology.
