- For my arts-funded short film Forgotten Paradise we used the Canon EOS C100 Cinema EOS Camera
- For my short-art documentary Last Service and my feature film Con we used the Panasonic Lumix GH4
- I am a huge fan of Adobe Creative Cloud, specifically for Premiere Pro. I never believed I would be able to edit and lo-and-behold I am editing my short films and video since last year. You can find a Premiere Pro plan here Premiere Pro App and Plan
- For royalty-free stock footage, I only use Video Blocks, who are now trading under the name Storyblocks (sign up for an exclusive offer 99 dollars for the Year) Stock Footage is dead handy for filling in short films, commercials and other video projects
- For royalty-free audio such as production music, sound effects and audio loops, go no further that Audioblocks (sign up for a free trial) Save time, money and hassle when you are in need of any sound for your next production
- Fiverr is the perfect for the getting jobs done quickly, for example, marketing your video, creating a mailing list, logo design, etc (I have used Fiverr on many occasions, I can’t recommend the service enough)
