How To Set Up A Simple Home Self-Tape Studio

Our interactive online course is going extraordinarily well. There has been an abundance of creativity, passion and learning going on.

There has also been a tremendous amount of sharing when it comes to the technical side of self-taping – cameras, tripods, lighting, editing equipment and compression techniques have all been discussed and procedures refined.

One of the participants – James Chalmers – has very kindly shared his incredibly effective yet inexpensive set-up for his home self-tape studio. If you ever need to self-tape then this is five and a half minutes of essential viewing:

Here are links to a couple of pieces of kit he mentioned: Lapel Mic and the Gorilla Tripod.

Thank you so much for making this guide James!
