Making a one man documentary

Filmmaker Matt Clift talks about how he went about making a one man documentary film about an orphanage in Uganda in 2007. He details the problems he had, the equipment he used and offers a number of tips for wannabe filmmakers working in difficult environments,
Where I was going there was no option for going back home or to the video equipment hire shop for something I forgot so I had to get the equipment list right. I tried extensively before leaving to find a list of items that were recommended for a one-man doco shoot but unfortunately I had no luck. Therefore I thought there would be benefit in providing a list of what I took, why I took it and a review as to how it performed in the field. link
