One Man Production Company Kit

Canon 60D

I wanted to share what I use for my documentary and video projects in case it's helpful to anyone. Below is my "One Man Production Company Kit":

Submitted June 2015

Panasonic GH4
Canon 60D

2x16GB & 1x4GB high speed SD cards
Camera cage for GH4

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Panasonic Lumix 45-200mm f/4-5.6

3x800w redheads w/ dimmer switches
Various gels/ diffusers

Zoom h4n digital audio recorder
Sennheiser EW100 g3 wireless lav kit
Rode NTG-2 shotgun mic

Various XLR cables


How I use them:

The Panasonic GH4 I mainly use for documentaries and some corporate work depending on what the client is looking for.

With the MFT sensor it's easy to keep focus even in a run & gun situation for documentaries while having amazing quality.

The Canon 60D I use for low budget narratives mainly, but also for some of the corporate work if the client only needs a HD web output. Sometimes I use it for interviews in documentary and as a B-cam as I have an amazing editor who can make it all fit together seamlessly.

What do you think of this one-man video production company kit? Please leave comments and feedback below.
