    Camera: Video Camera with 1080 pixels - Do Not Use phone due to the quality of video that will result

    Lighting: You don't really need this as you want the video to be realistic. If you want to have your own studio - purchase professional lighting that is for television or theatrical needs

    Editing: iMovie, Sony Vegas Pro, AVS Video Editor

    Music Recording: GarageBand, CueLab, Finale

    Have Fun!!!

    First consider locations. Your best bet is out doors or in some kind of studio like room with sound proofing for no echo.

    Alright, have you recorded the song as a record or DVD? If not you'll need to do that. There's no way to get good audio with out first recording the song in a studio setting.

    That done here's a look at the gear. First a camera that will do HD video and record audio. Tripod.

    Lights? Well if you pick the right outdoor locations lighting probably won't be a problem.

    You'll also need a portable DVD player so you can sing or mouth along with the music so that later when you go to edit you can loop that audio to your actions on camera. I say your camera needs to record audio - that's so that as you sing along you record that also and be able to properly loop.

    Do you have a video editor? That's also a necessary. I use Video Pad by NCH software. It supports unlimited tracks of audio, in it's pro version, so you'll be able to hear what you did in the

    "field" and be able to loop the DVD to that audio.

    If you try to make such a video without the audio prerecorded you're going to end up with lots of echo and distorted audio - not good.

    Good luck on your interesting project. It won't be cheap but it can be done. If you want it to both look and sound good when you're finished the prerecorded audio in a studio setting is essential.
