Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you have a crew to help you do all these?

No. I don’t have a crew to help me come up with all these reports. The tagline of this website says it all. “I shoot. I write. I record. I edit. I report.” So, basically, I am a one-man team. One of the reasons why I came up with this blog is to promote the concept of  backpack journalism, which is not that popular here in the Philippines.

2. What kind of equipment do you use?

Camera: Nikon D3100, Canon Powershot A3200, Canon Vixia HF R200, Apple iPhone 4S

Editing Machine: MacBook Air 11″ (mid 2011)

Light: CN-126 LED Video Light

Microphone: Heil PR40 (for voiceovers), Shure SM58 (handheld interview microphone), Audio-Technica ATR 3350 (lavalier microphone), Audio-Technica ATR 6550 (shotgun microphone), Samson C01U (USB microphone)

Mixer: Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB

3. What applications do you use?

I use Final Cut Pro X and iMovie to edit my video reports. I also use Garageband to record voiceovers and/or interviews.
