For the last couple of months, Patrick and I have been moving into our new homes in Puerto Rico and building out personal studios in each. Let me show you what I've built.
I thought my goal would be simple: I wanted a set that I could sit down at and film instantly without fiddling with anything. I wanted to take advantage of natural light during the day, but also have great-looking lighting at night without having to change the settings. I wanted to control my cameras and start and stop recording from my desk. I wanted my audio to sound great, but I didn't want to have to deal with a lav mic. I wanted to easily transfer footage to my computer, but I didn't want to mess with memory cards. After two months, my set is finally built, and I could accomplish each of my goals.
In case you missed it, I made a specific video about removing the echo from my concrete room:
And finally, to see my full build check out this video:
If anyone has a recommendation for a cheaper camera with a full frame sensor, great autofocus, and the ability to easily control wirelessly that is cheaper than my a7S III, please let me know in the comments below.
