Content creation is not as easy as doing an insta story using your Iphones. It consists of better quality videos as well as a good microphone. Even lighting and background can come into play for your videos or any other content. As such, a professional content creator usually has several cameras that they use for different reasons such as vlogging or general filming, even 1 for photography. With professional cameras, comes lighting equipment as well as the different lenses to be used for different shots. Lastly, the different background setting equipment that will make or break a quality content. As such, it is important to organise properly all items to make it easier for you to find when you need it immediately. Additionally, these equipment are very expensive, which is all the more important to keep it organised and safe for long term usage.

After properly organising, it may become a problem if you are doing this business on your own. You will find that your house will have a lack of space for storing all of your equipment and film at the same time. That is why some content creators make their own studios in other places such as self storage facilities, where they can store their equipment safely in it and at the same time, potentially use it as a studio whenever they need it. Self storage facilities are safe and accessible with 24/7 CCTV and personalised PIN access. All you will have to do, is to organise and pack your equipment well to make sure that you can easily find your items in your self storage unit.

Some content creators like to use their homes as a makeshift studio as it is convenient for editing purposes, as well as planning the set. However, if you stay with your family, it can be a problem filming with your younger siblings or even parents at home that might create background sounds. As such, having a quiet, empty environment such as self storage units would be much better for you to play around for your filming setting. You will not need to worry about additional background sounds as well since people don’t usually visit the self storage units after moving in. If you do not like a warm environment, there is even Air-con units for you to choose from.
