- Headphones (preferred over earphones)
- Plenty of external storage. A ﬂash drive is convenient, and everyone should have one for quick little transfers, but you will need larger storage. For example: storage with Thunderbolt or USB connections (not USB-C if you want to use them on the school’s machines.
- Something for taking notes. We’re not having traditional lectures, with endless PowerPoint presentations, but you are likely to want to make notes for yourself, either for keeping concentration during sessions or to have something to refer to later. We’re not speciﬁc about how you do this, but recommend that you make notes for yourself in some way. You could use a word processing app on your phone. Some people prefer paper-based solutions. Some might want to use their laptops for taking notes: this will only be practical during the post-production sessions, since you will not be seated for long periods of time in any sessions, and not at all in many of them, meaning that working on a laptop will not be convenient most of the time. Creating Google Docs that you can edit with your phone and access with your laptop later instead is probably the all-round solution.
- Cameras. The school provides cameras for workshops and completing assignments. If you are serious about working for yourself, getting the right camera would deﬁnitely be advantageous. However, you deﬁnitely shouldn’t buy a camera now: if you have one already that you would like to use, that’s great but if you are in the position to buy your own now, please rather come to the start of the programme and let us help you make the best decision.
- Laptops. The school has a Mac Lab with the installed software for the completion of assignments and having your own machine is not an requirement.. However, should you wish to get your own machine, we would recommend getting a Macbook Pro (not Macbook Air) for video production since the OS is good at handling media and the machines are tough in their construction.
