We use 2 different types of audio devices to record audio.
Shure SM7B Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
Used in most videos, usually during voiceovers. The Shure SM7B is a very high quality studio-grade microphone.
You will also need an audio interface. We use the Audient EVO 4 to connect the mic to the computer, and an active in-line preamp to boost the audio levels. We use the sE Electronics DM1 Dynamite 1 for this.
Deity D3 Pro
For our “run-and-gun” microphone that can be attached to cameras or boom poles, we use the Deity D3 Pro.
We use 2 cameras – a primary and a secondary.
Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
The BMPCC6K is great because it allows us to shoot in a 6K resolution. We can crop this down to 4K to either re-frame shots or simply capture more data from the sensor leading to higher quality video image. The colors and BRAW codec features are great too.
The Sony A7III is a great camera for run-and-gun shots (due to it’s snappy autofocus) and 4K resolution. We usually use it for vlog-type shots and secondary shots to complement the BMPCC6K.
DaVinci Resolve Studio is our choice of editing program. There is a free version of Resolve but Studio has more features and allows for hardware acceleration on Windows.
