So what does a News and Documentary Cameraman carry in his kit bag?

In this fun video I try and give a sense of what gear is useful to carry with you on a shoot. I show the contents of my “sack of life” and discuss why I carry what I do. It is by no means completely comprehensive, for example I didn’t include my lights or my tripod but I do hope that it gives a sense of what is useful to always have with you.

It was shot by my good friend Aulrich Market on a 5d mark 2 with an HV30 for the wide shot. I cut it on FCP and used Quicklooks to give it a bit more colour. Apologies for a few focus issues at the top.

Feedback is very welcome.
