From products to services to programs, this is just about everything I use. Let’s start.

Music

The music I use in all my YouTube videos is the BEST copyright-free music on the Internet - Epidemic Sound. They are honestly the #1, must-use service if you are making content on social media and don’t want to risk copy right claims and in some unfortunate cases, even legal claims. Try it FREE here for 30 days.

Video

Similarly to Epidemic Sound, Storyblocks has quickly become one of my top resources for making content on YouTube. Storyblocks has a massive database of copyright-free footage that you can use in your videos and still monetize them. It is a subscription-based model that allows you unlimited use of their shots from drone footage, animations, time lapses and stock imagery. They are a MUST for when you are missing that shot or want to take your visual story telling to the next level. Check them out here.

Programs

Working with clients or other editors on a team? Frame.io allows you to collaborate with other editors or receive quick feedback on timecode-specific changes. I can’t even start to explain how much this service has made life better for me, my team and my clients. Learn more here.

If you are using the old drag and drop technique to move files across your hard drive, you are living dangerously. With no notifications of a successful transfer or that all files successfully transferred without corruption, accidental deletion of clips can happen. Hedge monitors to ensure your entire transfer makes it safely and BEST OF ALL - you can transfer files to several destinations at once. This means you can end your day of shooting and move files from your camera to two hard drives at the same time, reducing the risk of losing all your files if one hard drive corrupts, breaks or is lost. Check them out and use this link when ready to purchase. (10% OFF with code "LEBLANC" already applied.)
