Hi all,

So, my company has put me in charge of coming up with a small video production studio and I need help. While I'm not putting a formal proposal together, I need to present some ideas and an idea of cost.

Here is what I am looking for.

I need to have a basic set up to shoot educational toys, product demos and stuff, primarily for the web. but I wouldn't limit it to just web. It needs to be simple but good enough to look professional

What I was thinking is a couple of cameras, Final Cut Pro, a sound mixing board, mics, lights, and whatever else you can think of. I need idea's, recommendations, and more. I don't have a budget yet but I need to keep the cost down.
