L1 Any Geek

Requirements: Bring a camera capable of recording video. Any camera will suffice, but ideally not your phone, but a standalone camera. A simple point and shoot, all the way up to a DSLR.

Also bring a laptop onto which you can transfer recorded video. (please ensure there is some free space on the hard drive to import videos)

Finally, make sure you have a video editor installed on your laptop that can import video you record and work with. It doesn't need to be professional software, a free version such as iMovie or windows movie maker will suffice.

Photo editing software like photoshop
A microphone - either a lapel or directional mic.
A camera light.
