Gear Up

HOW DO YOU GEAR UP?

Filmmaking is part intellect, part physical, part tech, and a whole lot of inspiration

We asked creatives who inspire us in all aspects of production to share how they prepare for and approach each project – in mind, gear and spirit. 

Whether it's brushing up on new technology, using gear in unique ways, or doing whatever it takes to make it work, we'd love to know how you:

So write us a note, tag us on Instagram, record a short video — whatever comes naturally to you. We'll share your story, your setup, your approach — to keep the inspiration growing!

"It was an absolute blast collaborating with these three amazing cinematographers to bring their unique, cinematic self-portraits to life."

"I think a deep interest in people and their stories is the most important quality of any documentary filmmaker. Very early on in my career I felt the desire to travel to foreign places, to meet people and to learn about their lives. Until this day, this desire is my biggest source of inspiration for any new project."

"For the longest time I have dreamed of being able to fly the @phantomhighspeed cameras on drones but the Flex 4K was just a bit too heavy to be practical. After much suggestion and a little patience our friends at Vision Research put out the VEO 4K which is small enough to fly on a drone, put in a @shotovercamera or on the @freeflysystems Movi. Thanks to @abelcine @dragonflyuas @drkanab @aerialminded @radiantimages for your support in making this a reality."
