Daniel Schifer has been doing commercials for a lot of solid marks these days, he actually talks a lot about how you can film professionals stuff being at your home or basically making your own home-studio as he did.
He’s a Canadian filmmaker and photographer and also a content creator. He gains fame after he created his Youtube channel where he shares filmmaking and commercial shooting tips for everyone interested, being a professional filmmaker Daniel loves to film short commercials, he is actually 20 years old.
We saw some videos of Daniel talking about his camera gear, so we bring you his main equipment because as we already say it he has a home studio so if we actually talk about every single thing that he has in his private studio this post will never end haha, so let’s get into it.
