Erik nailed it. I would suggest the same equipment. That's a legit DSLR setup for under $2k.
Also consider your options for editing software. If you've got a Mac, iMovie is a pretty free solution. Then there's Final Cut X ($300), Adobe Premiere Pro (about $30 a month) and something like Sony Vegas (about $100).
All have their pros and cons. It really boils down to personal preference.
(PRO TIP: Try all the "free trials" and see which you like best)
Without sounding biased, I'd recommend maybe working with iMovie, getting comfortable with the interface, and then upgrading to Final Cut Pro X when you need more editing control in your videos.
