How to Turn Your Room into a Video Studio

Want to shoot more videos in a shorter time frame?  Turn your meeting room, conference room or bedroom into a permanent video recording studio.
  1. Choose a solid coloured wall as background.
  2. Do not use real or fake plants as background. 
  3. Use 2 or 3 standing video lights. Implement 3-point lighting Technique.
  4. Avoid overhead lights as it creates nasty shadows on the face. 
  5. Use wireless microphones like the Sennheiser EW 112P G3.
  6. Watch out for humming noise coming from air conditioners and heating fan.  
  7. Leave your studio set up where they are, so you can use them over and over.
Do you have a similar setup or going to set up one?  Please share.

There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.
