- As long as your camera has the ability to shoot high quality video (1080p 60fps) you will not need any additional equipment.
- No gimbals, tripods or video sliders necessary. -You will need an editing program (ex. Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, After Effects, iMovie, Videopad)
- Computer/laptop with software/updates that allow for a video editing program to run effectively (research computer/software requirements for each program)
- Basic knowledge of an editing program would be beneficial but not necessary as Ang walks you through the foundations of getting started with Adobe Premiere Pro.
Other programs may be used [tutorials for other programs not provided in this workshop, however there are many readily available sources online].
