About This Class

Hello and welcome to my course on how to choose equipment for recording video courses. It has taken me well over a year to find the right equipment and nearly $10,000 to put together my current home studio. I hope to save you the trouble of going through different products and show you what I do for myself! This course will cover the following topics:

  • Choosing a good microphone.
  • What type of computer works best for filming.
  • Why I prefer to have two computers.
  • I use both a standing and sitting desk.
  • Building your own standing desk for under $100.
  • My lighting setup.
