Savvy Video Gear
Welcome. I’m so excited to help you create a Savvy Screen Space. These are just a few of the items I’ve purchased to help me create video content.

RGB LED Lights (2 pack)
I love these because they offer flexibility. Clear lights for when you need to create a fill light or an additional source for a key light and colors to create background lighting accents.
LIGHT BOXes/soft boxES
You can also use umbrellas or newer innovative lighting. This is similar to the kit I purchased several years ago. However, this particular kit does NOT have a head and shoulder (overhead) light.
Having an extra tripod is a must. You never know when your equipment may have a malfunction.
This tripod also doubles as a selfie stick and it easily folds up and has a carrying bag.
Consider using a webcam as a second camera angle. Plus, it’s an instant upgrade for most laptop’s webcams.
Since the camera I use has been discontinued, this is a excellent option if you want a DSLR. It is a 15 piece kit which offers great value. And guess what? It even takes pictures. Just kidding.
I really like this USB microphone because it offers an XLR cable that is available when it’s time to upgrade. It comes with a USB cable and an XLR cable for flexibility.
This is a great way to make your microphone less visible on video. Think about some of the ways you can make it disappear.
If your laptop will be shown on video, a clear riser can provide a more aesthetic visual.
GREEN SCREEN (AND BLUE)
This 5×7 green screen serves double duty, blue on one side, green on the other. Use it in front of your slides or when you’re making tutorials. It unfolds in a split second from a nice flat circle, but it may take some practice to get it folded back up.
