Here is a list of the equipment we use to shoot our videos. We most often use a two-camera set up with either one on a boom arm for an overhead shot and one on a tripod for a talking head shot or one on a boom arm for an overhead shot and one on a tripod from the side for a closer view of the action. We use an external microphone. Besides the cameras, our favorite pieces of equipment are the fixed 50mm lens and the studio portrait light kit. We have also used other equipment which we ended up not liking. If you have a question about a piece of equipment, just leave us a comment and we’ll reply.
