The S120 is twice as long as the S60, but weighs nearly the same. Its larger light aperture makes a great soft light even better.

With the Q-LED, the options are endless.  From lighting actors to lighting environments, the versatility is only limited by your imagination.

Scenic Paint, color your world

Movie PaintScenic paint has become a leading product in our expendables sales.

As you may have seen in our About page the owners started out as Scenic Artists and Set builders, so it comes as no surprise that this line has a special place in our hearts.

One line in particular stands out. Rosco's Supersaturated Acrylic scenic paint is a stand out performer. Any latex from the local paint store will do an OK job for most backgrounds, but when you need superior adhesion to varied surfaces or the economy of thinning the paint without losing vibrancy then Rosco Supersaturated is your answer.  This unique line of paint is designed to be thinned significantly thanks to it's special binder. It thins  and cleans up with water.

Cinegear 2015 report- the newest and most exciting gear

Cinegear 2015Cinegear 2015 was held this past weekend at the Paramount lot- as it has been for the past several years. This year we entered through the Van Ness gate- which was a schlep, make note for next year. The usual vendors were there, missing were the many drones buzzing overhead as were common in the last few years.

Don't think that because I described the Vendors as "the usual" there weren't wonderful new things to see. Pictured to the left is the Dana Dolly curved track from American Grip.

The track has a 10' radius and is expected to sell for around 250.00 per 8' section, this includes the two curved pieces- but not the brackets.
