Travellin' Light: 4 cameras, tripod, hard drives, MacBook Pro
As videographers we have to be able to travel with just the right amount of equipment to do a job right, and to make sure the equipment gets to its destination, intact and ready to film.
There are several hurdles along the way: customs officers can get suspicious of expensive cameras and if you don't pack your equipment in the right way then the result can be damaged gear. So you need to be smart about it.
My method is to be as inconspicuous as possible. Use luggage that doesn't look like camera equipment; avoid putting cameras into the hold of the plane - always carry cameras on board; and know how to pack and unpack a case jammed with gear to get you through security with as few hassles as possible.
