Product Reviews

Over the years, so many people have asked me about the kind of film gear I use for either short film, documentary or feature films. The fact is there is a lot of gear that I have used but only a small amount that I own. I feel that in this day and age filmmaking doesn’t have to be super expensive. Yes, it’s going to cost a fair bit of money to really get you set up properly but not enough that you should be living on the street because of it. So I am going to start making a number of reviews for social media and our webpage that showcases some of the best gear you can get that you can use through out your professional development. Some of these things don’t cost as much as you think. We look forward to sharing these reviews, tips and tricks and question and answer sessions with you soon.

My greatest honor as a filmmaker was reading this from my favourite filmmaker Steve McQueen

This was incredible for me as such a huge fan. Take a look below. ps – if you haven’t seen any of Steve’s films then you’re missing out. Go check them out. POWERFUL!!
