Education

BIRMINGHAM WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER

 

Gear. It’s not the end-all, be-all for a filmmaker…but it certainly helps you accomplish your creative goals and vision. I probably geek out over gear more than the average gal, but hey…what can you expect from a girl that grew up playing her fair share of video games in between cruisin’ down Sunset Boulevard* in my hot pink Barbie ‘vette? (Please let me know I’m not the only one that rode that thing ’til the tires wore off!) *Sunset Blvd, Adamsville, AL..not California 😉

Before I start talking about gear and what I love, I have to mention that all of the gear in the world will not matter if you don’t know what to do with it. I am a firm believer in educating yourself as much as possible before making gear purchases, because there’s nothing like buying a $1500 electronic gimbal just to realize that it is way too big, bulky, and all around wrong for your business/creative goals. (Speaking from experience..I love to hate you, Ronin-M.)

So first, I say invest in education. I will write up a separate blog post about all of the courses and training I’ve done, but for now let’s just say I’ve worked hard to understand my craft, and I will continue to work because that’s how you grow!

Without further ado..here it is. Everything worth mentioning in my Kelly Moore Bag. 🙂
