Here are some ways to cut-off your spending and effort in video editing.
1- Set A Budget and Stick To It
Your budget should be your guiding force in editing the video, not the other way around. Edit a video that suits your pocket. If you want high quality videos that will be posted in your website almost every week, then you really need to set aside a huge chunk of money for it. Identify the purpose of your video, and then try to check if you have available resources for.
For example, if your video needs to be shot in an office setting, is your office large enough to accommodate the entire production team? If you will need actors for the video, do you have an employee that can fill the role? Using what you already have is a great way to cut off spending.
2- When Planning, Be Mindful of Post-Production
It is better if you can film the shots that require the same setting at the same day. By doing this, you can save a lot of time and effort from the travel. Also check what costumes, make-up, technical equipment, and other extras you need before going to the location. It is better to have a storyboard that will guide you on the right sequence of shots, and what items are needed for filming each shot. Video editing will be faster since the footage is being filmed scene to scene.
3- Listen to Music While You Shoot
If you will need music to be mixed during film editing, try to do your own track. Licensing a commercially produced music is very costly. DIY for music will help you save money-a lot of money. Create a couple of sample tracks and listen to it while you are filming, this will not only save you time in the long run- but will also give you a better idea of what direction to move your video production.

Better yet, familiarize yourself with where the key scenes are to make retrieving those clips easier during editing.
