TRAVEL GEAR, My Mobile Production Studio

Have you ever wondered how a digital nomad runs their business? What equipment do they use and what bags do they travel with?

Well, I am that dude and in this video I’m taking you behind the scenes as far as I can.
My name is Balind, I’m a UX/UI/motion designer and content creator. I’m also a digital nomad, although I prefer the term ‘lifestyle designer’. You’re literally going to see everything I have with me while I run my 6-figure, B2B, services business from anywhere there is wifi.

For a much deeper dive, have a listen to the Podcast version of this episode:

* Mefoto Q2 tripod – super light, rarely use it except for vlogs (
* g-master 85mm 1.4 – portrait lens for still photos (
* Pilotfly H2 Stabilizer – smooth cinematic shots (

Instagram daily stories
* Joby gorilla pod – flexible and strong, sometimes use with A7Sii (
* Manfrotto phone holder and light – cheap light that helps (

Mobile office
* Macbook pro
* Samsung 2TB solid state external drive – thinnest, lightest I could find, this + dropbox is everything (
* iPad pro – sketching idea, storyboarding, secondary monitor
* Roost laptop stand (mouse/keyboard) – light and portable, good for neck (

    Wouldn’t it be better to have a backpack that can’t be pickpocketed as a digital nomads?

    Look into Tascam DR10L or Lectrasonics PDR and pair with Sanken Cos-11D if you want better external mics.
