I use snowboard bags to carry light stands. It's cheap enough, durable, with shoulder strap. You can open it all around nicely lay them down and zip it. :)
You can sometimes put in small lights as well.
yeah that has to be it. I use ND on gopro for daylight. Do you feel the new cam is better then gopro 4?
the whole footage is very wobbly, exposure varies. Wonder how much stabilisation was used in post? Is the camera setup for close focus? Or why is it so "unsharp" in the distance? I'm thinking to upgrade my phantom2+Gopro4 combo to inspire, but I get better quality footage from my current setup.
Shots are very nice.
for macro shots I use SLATE on my mobile phone, it will actually fit perfectly in macro detail shot :)

As a point of reference on full frame I start with this setting:
to me they intercut nicely and I have a good chance not loosing focus, while still having nice out of focus area.
One warning though. If you are shooting for BIG screen ( theater ), your out of focus area become much more pronounced on that big screen. What looked good on 50" monitor didn't translate that well to big screen. From now on I'm not going past f4 ( as a general rule ).
As other guys pointed out already, this tutorial is the WORST idea ever. Using your thumb confuses the hell out of people, because NO ONE expects you to point out something with you THUMB! And almost cupping the woman's breast was the WORST intrusion to someones private space. Touching shoulder?!?! All wrong moves.
You stand one more step back. Show everytnig ON YOUR SELF, with INDEX FINGER. Drop the line from the top AND TURN AROUND while they do it, or have them do it somewhere in secluded room ( bathroom if needed ) . It's best if there is a mirror and asking them to conceal the wire.
When you going to adjust the mic, you will tell them first what exactly you going to do, stand AWAY from them and reach with your arms, not going with your whole body in to their private space.
Who is this guy?!?!
