Face it, video equipment is quite expensive. And the bigger your production is, the more expensive it can get, so finding ways to mimic the effect without spending a dime is essential.

Don’t fret because there is a solution. Creative Director Karen X. Cheng makes videos explaining the low-budget ways you could make your production look as professional as any high-budget movie studio.

Bullet-time, zoom effect, vertigo—you name it, she did it spending no more than a couple of bucks if not nothing at all. Bored Panda collected some of the best videos she has put up on her Instagram, so check them out below. And while you’re down there, why not vote and comment on the best ones!

LOL. We did the camera-on-a-stick thing for a school project once, and it worked out great. But I think I wouldn’t call using a 360 degree camera “low budget”.

Or learn to fly a quad. It's really fun and not all that expensive.
