Landon Bytheway is a Salt Lake City-based content creator for Full Time Filmmaker, a crash course on everything film. And his setup is geared for creating top-quality videos. The linchpin of the rig is a 27-inch iMac. It rests on top of a Walnut Monitor Desk Stand by Grovemade. Mounted over it is a 34-inch LG Curved UlraWide that takes this rig to the next level. In fact his only complaint about the setup is the kink he gets in his neck from staring upwards so long.
To build the desk itself, he got a beautiful 70×40-inch slab of Acadia wood from Home Depot and attached it onto an electric UPLIFT V2 Commercial Standing Desk Frame. This sit-stand desk is his favorite part of the whole setup. When he is not standing, he sits on an ErgoChair 2 from Autonomous. The only slight thing you could say about the ErgoChair is that it might be over-designed. It looks like it was meant for Quasimodo.
Bytheway used to have the Apple Magic Keyboard and Trackpad but has since ditched them. Instead, he picked up a Keychron K2 Bluetooth Wireless Mechanical Keyboard and replaced the enter key with a custom built one that better matches the Acadia finish. He loves the classic “click” noise that mechanical keyboards make when he types. He pairs it with a Logitech MX Master 2s mouse, the precursor of the legendary Master MX 3, which many call the best mouse on the planet.<!– –>
For audio, this perfectionist has a pair of Klipsch The Sixes Powered Monitor Speakers. These beautiful mid-century inspired speakers not only perfectly compliment the desk but also pack quite a punch. They have 6 1/2-inch long woofers for some awesome bass. For more intimate listening he has a pair of beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 ohm Limited Edition Professional Studio Headphones. They sit atop a Grovemade Walnut Headphone Stand, which, with its wood and black leather design, make it blend in like a chameleon. He also has a pair of AirPods Pro for on-the-go listening and an Echo Dot for casual listening. No matter the mood, this guy is strapped for audio.
He uses a Rode USB Cardioid Condenser Microphone for recording voice-overs and while in Zoom meetings. To simplify his workspace he bought himself a Satechi Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub Pro. For data management he has a SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable External SSD and a Mediasonic USB Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure. The Wool Felt Pad by Grovemade really ties the setup together.
