What’s in Your Kit: Cinematographer Frankie DeMarco

The Kit

I’ve chosen to exclude my meters, specialty lenses and other DP hardware and opted to show you what’s in my “use-all-the-time” kit. I use these items on all my projects: movies, TV pilots or commercials.


A. Adidas ClimaCool trainers / $60

B. Bonger / $20

Japanese massage tool for relieving neck and back stress.

C. Tiffen .15ND filters
