Video Announcement Set Tour + Gear List

Hello camera geeks, gearheads, and anyone else who wants a look at how our studio is set up to shoot announcements. In this quick video, I’ll share how we set up our lighting, green screen, and audio, plus I’ll even hand out a few makeup tips. Since I don’t cover every piece of gear in the video, here’s a list of all the essentials we use when shooting our announcements.
