I recently received a grant to purchase some new equipment to allow my business to grow and thought I’d share on here about it to allow others to apply for any future schemes they have running. The grant was through the New Anglia Business Growth Programme for the visitor economy and wider economy funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The grant was received to assist me in taking my filmmaking business to the next level, allowing me to purchase broadcast quality lighting and sound equipment for an exciting new project we have planned to show off the North Norfolk coast and various amazing events throughout the year.
I can’t say any more about it right now but we have been working (and continue to work) on a pilot episode for submission to various television channels with a view to getting commissioned to produce a full series.
The generous grant enabled me to purchase the fantastic Aputure 300D II & Lightdome for beautifully lighting interviews plus some superb sound equipment including the Rode Go II microphones, a Zoom H4N pro sound recorder and the Rode NTG3 microphone with ‘blimp’ windshield for capturing amazing ambient sounds & interviews on the go.
