The Matthews Party in Burbank is an annual SALE on grip equipment, which is awesome! ...Because who cant use more grip?
Music, food, vendors and of course rock bottom prices for all Matthews Products-- which we loaded up on, and we would recommend any start up film companies to do too.
Its always good to have a basic set up for lighting a scene, and flagging when needed. Of course, gaffers and grip departments will have their own equipment when hiring on most jobs, but for those of you who aren't on a professional or indie set yet, don't worry, you can invest a couple hundred dollars on Matthews equipment and have a fair amount of usable tools.
Check out the photos we got of the Matthews Factory Tour while we were visiting! We enjoyed learning about the journey of the Matthews brand!
