175: My Video Toolbox (Episode 95)

Podcast ShowNotes

The question I get all the time is ‘What do you use to make your videos?’. I always chuckle and wish I could respond with an easy answer. The fact of the matter is there are a lot of pieces to the puzzle. I don’t use them all on every video, but I’m always hopping around depending on what I need.

The Podcast:

(Ep98)

Inside the Mike Murphy toolbox of gear, software and iOS apps that I use to make all of my videos.

Inspiration for show:
On a regular basis I am asked what my favorite tools are for making videos or I am asked which piece of software I use to edit all of my videos. The reality is I use an array of gear and programs on my Mac and iPhone to make nearly every video and it really all depends on what the video needs.

I try to keep everything as simple as humanly possible, but as you are about to learn, there is a lot that goes into video production and editing.
