Transom Gear Guide, Hooray!

October 30, 2012 in GPRX Blog by Jones Franzel


A great big thank you to our friends at Transom.org for answering the question every producer asks: What gear do I need? Yes, we'll need to tackle the nuances of storytelling, the ethics of the interview etc. etc. But to get any of that down? We need gear.

As usual, Transom has a thorough review of equipment with an eye to the size of our pocketbooks (small, medium or large), and weigh ins from some of the pros. Producers can decide just what to buy and where to put their cash (hint: headphones!).
