What equipment do we need?

Posted July 28, 2021 in

Hi all! 

I am new to the videography world. I'm working on putting together a list of equipment we would need in the office so that we can shoot videos quickly and easily instead of trying to find a studio, hire a freelancer, etc.  

We're a small business with about 10 employees total. Up to this point, we've been filming via zoom/webinar software and just repurposing that footage. 

Please send me any links to specific things that would help! Type of camera, lighting, backdrops, lapel mics, etc! 
We're starting from scratch basically. 

Thanks!

Here are a bunch of different equipment kits you can check out: https://kit.co/zbasner

If you need something relatively inexpensive and extremely user-friendly, I'd recommend building out your kit around a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema (4k) Camera. It's listed in my beginners kit. :-)

Also, some things to keep in mind when you're buying equipment for a set: https://www.impactplus.com/blog/video-marketing-office-studio-low-budget
