A Heartfelt Thank You To Our Supporters:
Our friends at Reactiv have played an important role in the evolution of The Legacy Project. They have donated their time and energy to create an incredible motion graphic intro for the project.
Check out a breakdown of their workflow here.
Brent is proud to be part of the Kessler Shooter team . The Second Shooter+ has been like having an additional crew member on our projects and their Kwik Release system lets us quickly switch from one setup to the next.
The Legacy Projects have forced us to be selective with the gear that we bring due to travel constraints. Through LensProToGo we're able to make sure that we have the right tools for the job. We're also proud to be part of their Pro Team!
Rain or shine, these lights stand the test of weather and travel. We feel like the F8 lights may be been built for us. They're powered by V-mounts in the field and can take the beating we give them.
Great music can make or break a project. The team at Marmoset provides us with personalized support to find music that fits the mood and feel of each piece and drive forward the emotion of the story.
We power almost all the gear we own from these V-mounts. From our main cameras to lighting kits, and even our cell phones while on set, these v-mounts are a critical part of our gear selection.
We honestly underestimated the importance of sound design when we started as filmmakers. In fact, it's something that has evolved for us through this series. We are also super lucky that we got to work with the best right out of the gate. Seriously, we can't say enough about Defacto's work.

It took us a while to find the right balance of a tripod that works well for video work and also travels well for the types of projects we work on. Benro has filled that spot perfectly for us.Tripods aren't something we use constantly for our shoots, but they are key for interviews, macro work, and motion control time-lapses.
We try to have a mic rolling on everything we're capturing. From lavs for interviews, to shotguns in the field, RODE has been our go to company for audio. They're also incredibly supportive in the filmmaking community, and truly care about what they're customers are creating.
We've graded the last two Legacy Projects using Film Convert. It's worked really well to match the cameras we're using on our drones in the air to the ones we're capturing images with on the ground while creating the "look" we want for our films.

This monitor lives on our FS5 and gives us a ton of flexibility ranging from capturing RAW, to 4K high-speed bursts, to allowing us redundancy in our recording on set. We also regularly use it as a monitor when pulling focus combined with our Teradek.
The Cineluxe backpack from Tenba was a go to for us on our recent trip to Uganda. We could keep our camera set up and ready to roll, and use the top opening doctor style bag to quickly access and store it throughout the trip. These bags are well built, durable, and carry-on ready, which is key for us when traveling.
