In this video, I show you how you can create a Youtube studio with a budget of $0, a budget of $25.000, and a lot of steps in between. I will talk about low budget cameras, microphones, lights, and about better quality gear to make your final result more professional.

After watching this video you will know what kind of result you can have with the budget you have! But more important than the budget is YOU! You can film yourself using your smartphone and have an amazing result.

Below you see a list with all the links to the gear I talk about. Some links are affiliate links and give me a commission when you buy them through my link. You don’t pay more :). Thank you for that!
