Stuff we use:
LENS – Most people ask us what camera we use, no one ever asks about the lens which filmmakers always tell us is more important. This lens was a big investment for us and one we wish we could have made sooner. Started using this lens at the end of 2013 – http://amzn.to/2tbtmOq
Rode VideoMic Pro – The Rode mic helps us capture our backup audio. It also helps us sync up our audio in post http://amzn.to/2t1n2hx
Audio Recorder – If we had to do it all over again, this is probably the first item we would have bought – http://amzn.to/2tbFlM9
LIGHTS – Although we like to use as much natural light as we can, we often enhance the lighting with this small portable light. We have two of them and they have saved us a number of times – http://amzn.to/2u5UnHv
COMPUTER – Our favorite computer, we each have one and have used various models since 2010 – http://amzn.to/2t1M67Z
EDITING – We upgraded our editing suite this year and we’re glad we did! This has improved our workflow and the quality of our work. Having new software also helps when we have a problem, it’s easy to search and find a solution – https://goo.gl/56LnpM
