Gear & app suggestions for those getting started with mobile video & filmmaking.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Beginners, students, casual users, hobbyists, social media creators (TikTok, etc.), YouTubers, travelers or even just those looking for an Everyday Carry style setup.

WHAT DO WE RECOMMEND?

Regardless of the kind of phone you use we recommend adding several key accessories to this starter style kit to ensure you'll get the best possible results. These are a tripod, tripod mount, ND filter (with a mount, depending on the setup), microphone and a case.

This is a minimalist setup, but you can actually do a lot with it (only add the microphone when needed to keep the setup small). Below are different configurations with purchase links. These are suggestions based upon years of hands-on experience. And please note, some of these options could be mixed & matched within different setups.
