If you want more art and science in this world, don't keep shit to yourself.

  • Alienware 14 laptop
  • Wacom Pen & Pro Touch (beware: this is the glitchiest piece of hardware I've ever faced in my life since playing Fallout 3)
  • Seinheisser HD 280 Pro headphones
  • Apple iTouch 32GB
  • USB flash drives everywhere

All of this is portable and lightweight, but expensive.

If you intend to use some sort of Cloud to save your files to, be aware that synchronization may present issues and REMEMBER & HIDE YOUR PASSWORD.

If you intend to save your files to USB flash drives, DON'T FUCKING LOSE THEM OR BREAK THEM. PLEASE DON'T.

If you accidentally upload a virus-loaded file into your save spot, you're probably fucked.

For people who yank out their headphones cords out of their audio jacks at weird angles, keep doing it and you'll need your whole motherboard replaced. Don't do that shit, yo. Take care of your outlets and jacks.

Software: (*free download)
  • Microsoft Office Home & Student Edition (writing, organizing)
  • Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection (drawing, animating, video-making)
  • *Audacity (recording & organizing audio)
  • FL Studio 11 (composing music)
  • Avid Pro Tools 11 (recording & composing)
  • Sony Vegas Pro 12 (organizing & video-making)
  • *Evernote (note-taking)
  • *CopyTrans Music Manager (organizing music & uploading it to my iTouch, because iTunes is a bitch and had destroyed my music collection in the past)
  • Final Draft 8 (scriptwriting)

If you were to buy all these in one sitting it'd probably cost over $2000 or so, but I'm fortunate to be technology savvy and I torrented everything. Don't worry I'll pay for everything when I have a job. :P

If you download GIMP or Inkscape, free alternatives to Adobe Photoshop (raster) and Illustrator (vector), that's okay but they're a ton LESS intuitive than professional software. That's probably why they're free.

More stuff I recommend getting in the future but I haven't acquired yet:
  • boom mike
  • microphone & pop filter (protects the microphone from spit & gets rid of "popping" sounds)
  • photo & video camera that works well in low-light environments such as nighttime or a dark room, produces little noise (doesn't make grainy photos)
    • don't get a camcorder that has a photo-taking option or visa versa; those don't work well & often mess up
    • instead, get a camera specialized for photography and another camera specialized for recording video
    • HD all the way, baby, don't settle for less

Tip: If you want stock sounds and a diverse collection of music to select from, go on YouTube video surf sprees.

If you need to correct me on anything or add anything to this, please tell me in the comments section.
