Essential Kit ~ Patrick Moreau and Michael Gebben

Recently, we got to sit down with Patrick Moreau from StillMotion and Michael Gebben from Gebbs Wedding Films.
We first met Patrick at Re:Frame Austin back in April 2009 where he played a huge part in our decision to buy a 5d. We’re eternally grateful!
Patrick has always been at the top of his game. It’s quite evident by watching the films he produce that he has a complete understanding and appreciation for his craft. Every time I hear him talk about filmmaking I learn something new and, within quite a saturated industry, that’s hard to come by.

Last week in Orlando, Patrick introduced us to Michael Gebben… CEA award winner for his same day edit shown below.
Both Patrick and Michael gave us an inside look to their essential kit. As you’ll see, there are drastic differences between the two but each serves its purpose.

    no offense guys, but, when patrick was speaking and going through his gear it would have been nice to have a wider shot where we can see his bag and what he’s grabbing. for a gear setup, didn’t think the video was as good as it could be.

    good site. just sayin.
