The Best Gifts To Give To A Filmmaker This Christmas

Need some help getting creative with gifts this Christmas season? You might know a few filmmakers but don’t have a single clue about what to get them. Or maybe you’re wanting to treat yourself and expand on your skill set. I think the best way to go about it is to think practically when it comes to buying your friend or yourself a gift. Think of something that might be trending on the market or something they can use and add to their collection of film gear. 

There’s a lot of great accessories you can narrow in on and I found a great video that will give you heaps of clues on what you can consider on buying. He mentions things like lighting equipment, aputure lights and lume cubes, another great light to use is LED lights.  Different styles of lights can enhance your picture quality and if your friend loves good video production then lighting is essential. Other great accessories he mentions include mics for recording, a slate, SD card holder, hard drive, reflector, gaff tape or a handheld tripod for phone or camera. 

If shopping out at this time of the year scares you, you can always jump online and order. The ideas are endless and the good thing is, you can buy these on amazon and eBay at a reasonable price. 

An awesome website I would recommend having a look at is Moment, they have good quality products and a broad range of film gear. 

It’s time to get your thinking caps on and add items to your shopping cart, hopefully some of these ideas have been an inspiration for this year’s Christmas gifts.
