7 gifts filmmakers will love
As the Holiday season approaches the question may arise of what should I buy that person I love that is a filmmaker? Below I have outlined 10 of the best gifts that filmmakers will be excited about in their everyday life that they will cherish at work.
Watches. The Apple Watch Ultra or the Apple Watch Series 8 will make great stocking stuffers for any filmmaker. These newer apple watches have better health sensors are more durable and heck the ultra watch looks like a real spy device from a Bond movie.
Software. Scriptation is a digital subscription that allows filmmakers to mark up scripts, transfer notes and more. They are having a black Friday sale and this would be a great gift without breaking the bank. Normally you would pay $79.99 annually but with this link you can save $30.

Call Sheet Holder. You can't go wrong with the traditional Gold Fold. This product has been a staple for Assistant Directors for years. Even though I like to use a tablet I still carry my leather Gold Fold because I'm less likely to break it or have it stolen when I'm walking around on set. This is the perfect device to carry call sheets, schedules, sides and write down important notes on the day.
Books. There are several great reads out there that will inspire and equip that filmmaker you know. Check out the following books:
Tablets. The reMarkable and iPad are both great tablets for note taking, meetings and location/tech scouts. I love using the reMarkable for the majority of my notes while the iPad can come in handy when marking up overheads or looking at story boards for the next day's scenes.
Belt Bags. A Belt Bag might just be the missing device your filmmaker needs while on set. This everywhere bag from Lululemon can hold your phone, keys and you can carry around your waist or over your shoulder.
