Gear for Your Short Film

By Anthony Thurston on August 18th 2013

One of the biggest questions that gets asked regarding photography and filmmaking is always about gear. What lens did you use, what lighting did you use, what slider did you use, the list goes on and on.

The guys over at Indy Mogul as the last part of their behind the scenes on a short film project series did this great video on the equipment that they used. I love watching videos like this because you get to really see how certain gear was used, how much it costs (roughly) and you can begin to formulate ideas about what gear you will need on your own project and what may be out of your budget.

Just from watching the video above you were able to see some great budget conscious gear that is within the budget of even the lowest budget filmmakers. You also saw some awesome gear that is not so budget friendly, but if you pay attention you can see that those things are in important places like Audio and Camera Stabilization.

Here are links to the gear as shown in the video (as listed in the show notes) for those of you who may be interested in picking one of these up.
