Required and Optional Gear for Shooting Your Short Film – The Filmmakers Boot Camp

Required and Optional Gear for Shooting Your Short Film – The Filmmakers Boot Camp

Required and Optional Gear for Shooting Your Short Film is not as hard to determine as it may sound. Join me in this module as we go over a checklist of items for shooting our short film together in next weeks module. Feel free to have as little or as much as you want. This is my “Gear List on Amazon.”

Required is a camera to shoot your film and of course any other accessories needed such as SD cards, batteries or external power pack. After that, it’s all optional. See my gear list below if you’d like to consider purchasing any optional gear.

You’re at TheIndieLot, where it’s film school for the rest of us!
