This is Adam Opie: Filmmaker, Camera Operator, & Glidecam Extraordinaire. He’s put together a filmmaker’s accessory kit which we think even Batman would be jealous of: This is the Filmmaker’s Utility Pouch
First off, you have the pouch itself: £13.98.
This one is by OneTigris. It’s got pockets in pockets, outside buckles, and molle-style straps perfect for attaching to your belt.
Inside the front pouch you have filmmaking stationary:
A cloth for cleaning monitors and screens
A lens pen, also for cleaning camera lenses
AA batteries for emergencies (these are labelled non-rechargeable at 100%)
And a lens cloth for cleaning lenses
Then you have the back pouch. Inside here we have:
A multitool used for tightening tripod plates, cutting things open, and emergencies such as removing over threaded screws.
A allen key tool for all of your allen key needs
A torch. This one zooms in. You can use this in dark situations and double checking the location after a wrapped shoot.
Business cards, because you never know when you need to take off your filmmaker hat and put on your business hat.
Velcro straps for cable management and emergency attachments.
On the outside we have:
Fingerless gloves: If you are doing a lot of outside shooting, especially in the winter, it’s always a good idea to protect your hands from the elements. These gloves by Dirty Rigger are fingerless for retained dexterity, and will assist your grip during camera operation and lifting equipment. They also have a hold at the wrist for clipping to the pouch.
Ear protection. Perfect for a loud shooting location such as a concert or gig. These ones by EarPeace even come in a handy canister
Radios, because you never know when you need to get in contact with someone beyond earshot. The antenna even fits in this pouch really tidy.
Some pens, because at some point someone will always ask “Any got a pen?”.
To attach everything to the outside of the pouch are some handy miniature screw gate carabiners.
And to finish it off, some spring clamps.
Everything in and on this pouch, including the pouch itself, comes in at a total of £.
You might not need everything in this pouch so just get what you need when you need it.
In addition to the pouch, Adam has started putting together a 2nd AC’s utility belt including:
Miniature T marks made from t brackets and bright coloured tape. Great for outdoor use.
A slate, a dry wipe pen, and a microfiber for cleaning the slate.
An absolute shed load of assorted tape, held together with a rigging strap.
Heat resistant gloves for handling hot lights.
The belt also has a MOLLE strap system, which is a universal webbing system employed by thousands of container harnesses and belts. It also means that you can attach the utility pouch to the belt.
So if you want to be a walking swiss army knife, check out the shopping list Adam has put together in the description below. And if YOU have any suggestions for Adam and what he can add to his utility belt, leave us a comment or talk to him directly, I’ve put his social media links in the description too.
