Everything in this documentary was filmed with a Canon M50.
The audio was recorded using a Zoom H1n mounted on top of it.
That equipment was given to Alex after the Esperanto-USA board of directors approached him at NASK 2019 and told him about their educational video fund.
It provides grants to Esperanto-speaking filmmakers to upgrade or invest in new equipment.
Look at any Exploring Esperanto video from before July 2019, and you’ll immediately notice the improvement.
If you have an idea for a film or a series of videos that are educational and related to Esperanto, fill out a grant request form on this webpage and perhaps Esperanto-USA can help you out.
I am glad that Exploring Esperanto had a video showing of NASK, they need to do this more often, which will help more people learn that it exists and what it is and encourage more people to go.
