This 12 feet long jib is useful for getting high shots, or shots which need to move a great distance horizontally or vertically, without the expense and safety issues of putting a camera operator on a crane.

A camera slider is a set of bracketed tracks that mounts to either a set of tripod legs or a light stand. The slider has a movable “carriage” that can be attached directly to the camera, or a tripod head can be attached between the camera and the carriage for more panning and angle options. It allows a very gentle and smooth camera movement which makes a bit difference in story-telling

The proper lighting is key for the good cinematography. Currently I own 6x 800W redhead lights with LEE filters (3x white, 4x CTB, 4x CTO, fern green, bright yellow, moonlight, fire), 3x FST softboxes, an Aputure Amaran AL-H160 LED Video Light and a 110 cm 5 in 1 circular reflector.
For the post production I use Adobe CS6 softwares such as Premiere Pro, Encore, Photoshop, After Effects and Mocha.
