How I make my videos

My Gear:
Thanks for watching & for your support! If you're interested in checking out any of the gear I mentioned in this video (or other stuff I use that I didn't reference) you can check out my Kit above. All the links on there are Amazon Affiliate links.
After many requests to get a breakdown of the gear I use I thought this would be a great resource for people struggling to find useful film tools. But don't feel compelled to buy anything you don't need or won't get value from. Good luck creators! Keep making weird stuff.

prime lenses are great in lowlight they're very sharp in the f-stop gives you a great depth of field the Canon 24mm mmm 1.4 lens works great when I'm talking directly to the camera for documentary style interviews I almost always use my Canon 50 mmm one point say I'm filming a documentary it's a running gun type situation I will probably use my 24 to 105 or 16 to 35 mmm

I use the Sennheiser MKH 416 it's expensive at around $1,000 but it has amazing sound quality with very little post editing budget for the first six years of my filmmaking career IU rode ntg 2 much more affordable not as sharp it's not as crisp I use this collapsible manfrotto boom stand pole to accomplish this it Lights The professional version of my like kit is the Light Panel Astra it's a powerful and solid light that I bought a few years ago the light is adjustable between daylight and tungsten often use it with a softbox or simply balanced it against the wall or ceiling my DIY approach that I used for the podcast and other scenarios is a paper lantern this is an absolute game-changer for budget filmmakers this cheap solution provides a nice even light for a stupid amount of money everything needed can be purchased on Amazon for less than $30 Mic: Shure sm7b microphone which is connected to a cloudlifter and then plugged into an H6 audio recorder the mic is amazing at reducing outside noise so I can record and pretty much any room when I had a lower

I started vlogging with a 25 mm batis lens but it was a little bit too tight for turning the camera on myself so I opted to invest in the more versatile 16 to 35 mm g Master

Great video!
Was wondering which microphone arms you usually use in the podcasts. I noticed you're using a table stand in this video, but often use microphone boom arms. I'm currently using the Shure SM7B in combination with a Halo shadow reflection screen. The combo of both seems a little bit too heavy for the cheap Rode boom arm I have. I'm guessing the combo is too heavy for any type of boom arm (given the limits of those, and... well... gravity), but I'd love to know what you're using as it looks sturdy.
Combined weight of the Shure and the reflection screen adds up to about 2,61 kg / 5,19 lb total.
