&
Sourcing Recommendations

If you are a “hands-on” individual and have the  talent & desire to product a compelling video on your own, great! Below are a few tips & items you will need. We have found some great venders that offer these items at fantastic prices. Please keep in mind the recommended products are not super professional grade but will work superbly at affordable prices.

To begin, you will need the following;

  • DLSR that has record capability
  • Voice recording device, iPhone or Samsung phones are great for audio recording (even if your DSLR has a built in mic)
  • HD recorder app (generally free) for your phone
  • Lavalier mic
  • Studio lighting
  • Digital video editing software ( Camtasia a bit pricy, if you have a windows based computer, Microsoft Movie Maker is good & free. It can be downloaded here Windows Movie Maker directly from Microsoft.
  • Digital audio editing software (Audacity works well & it’s free. See download link below)

If you are going to try “green screen” videos, where you can superimpose your image in almost any background then you are going to need a “green screen” setup.
