Documentary gear budget
I'm currently looking to buy film gear to shoot a documentary starting in June 2016. It's going to be 80% one man shoot. I'm going to film interviews, events and also landscape. Time-lapse and 360º photo and video is also something I'm interested in doing. Some interviews are going to be filmed in locations with no available electricity, so please keep that in mind (lighting). I'm also a fiction filmmaker and plan to use that gear for that kind of work. Can you please help me building a good complete package of gear? I'm looking for camera/s, lens, rigs, gimbal, sound and lighting. The best possible quality for the budget. I would like to shoot 4k because the subject is something important to preserve for the future, not just the documentary itself but the raw footage. So future proof if possible. Also the documentary will have a more "filmic" aesthetics, camera movements, etc.
My budget is €15k.
Thank you in advance for the help.
