I used my Moto X 2nd gen cell phone cameras, dynex 57' travel tripod, rode video micme and Power Director 15 mostly. Helpful android apps were: Pfitzinger Field Recorder, Cinema FV-5 and Solid Explorer File Manager. Film was made and edited in about two days. All my lights were whatever was at hand -natural light and room lights. I just did as many takes as I could and adjusted camera position to try adapting.

The locations were my kitchen, chicken coup and family van for voice recording. If you have kids or a busy life just do what you can and use what you can. My wife is a super helpful and patient asset.

I have lights and a bunch of other video gear, but honestly working alone means keeping it as simple as I can. Stuff that I don't use much wastes my time trying to learn last second.
