Gear Demos, Budget Solutions and Documentary Equipment Interview with POV

Doc Chat

POV (a PBS show about documentaries and filmmaking) asked me to join a Google+ panel event called Doc Chat. I was joined by Professor Duy Linh Tu of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism to demo gear and answer viewer questions. The live hangout went very well and we covered a lot of great questions.

Here are some of the things we covered:

  • Equipment for documentary shooting
  • Audio Gear
  • Buying vs renting
  • Insuring your gear
  • Lenses
  • Much More

Here is a recording of the interview:
