EP98: The Video Toolbox Show

Inside the Mike Murphy toolbox of gear, software and iOS apps that I use to make all of my videos.

Inspiration for show:
On a regular basis, I am asked what my favorite tools are for making videos or I am asked which piece of software I use to edit all of my videos. The reality is I use an array of gear and programs on my Mac and iPhone to make nearly every video and it really all depends on what the video needs.

I try to keep everything as simple as humanly possible, but as you are about to learn, there is a lot that goes into video production and editing.
