Gear & Resources
Sometimes you don’t have to hire to create the video you’re looking to create.
If you’re ready to dive in and DIY it then these are my top recommendations!
I use Adobe Creative Cloud products and absolutely looove them.
Choose either the Single App Plan or the Full App plan, depending on your needs.
For mobile editing: Select Premiere Rush from the dropdown menu ($9.99/mo)
For desktop editing: Select Premiere Pro from the dropdown menu ($20.99/mo)
ActiveCampaign is my go to! Great for weekly newsletters and it’s the king when it comes to automation.
Artlist.io is a subscription site that is AWESOME for unlimited downloads of copyright free music.
FILE TRANSFER WEBISTES
WeTransfer is great if you’re only needing to send a file that is under 2 GB.
Frame.io is hands down the fastest file transfer website. It was made for creatives to share footage and also have review capabilities for giving time stamped notes. This is SUPER valuable if working with an outsourcer.
Google Drive & Dropbox are always an option as well. Their bulk download feature is great, but their upload rates are atrocious (aka prepare to leave your computer running overnight when uploading large files.
