Apps, Tools, and Digital Resources

This table collects various apps, plugins, and other digital resources that I find helpful for leveling up my video production. Most of these are not necessary for making videos (except the editing programs), but you may find that they enable you to do more creative things.

Not sure which editing program to pick? If you don’t already have one, I recommend Da Vinci Resolve. It’s free and very powerful. My team and I use Premiere Pro, but mainly because we’ve been doing so for nearly a decade and are kinda locked into it.
