Hey everyone,

I just got sponsored by a company who wants me to be there Director of Social Media. (basically staying mobile/stationary and interviewing/talking to people) I will be their host and tape at a lot of events. He asked me to let him know what HD camera we should buy, mic, and lighting.

There are two options:

1. Money is no concern - we want the most high quality equipment

* What kind of lighting should the company buy?- (needs to be unobtrusive + be stationary and able to stand on its own)


2. Cost effective model - we're trying to save money

* What kind of lighting should the company buy?- (needs to be unobtrusive + be stationary and able to stand on its own)

I'm mainly concerned with how big of a crew I'd need to manage the lighting equipment and lighting people when I'm on the move versus being stationary.

Can you guys let me know what you recommend for the two options?

(I've just been using a regular DV camera and a really old mic so I don't know too much about this stuff).

Thanks soooo much!
