Behind The Scenes – Production Crew’s Must-Have Set Equipment

Every worker on the production crew has their own style and tools they need to operate and perform their job on set. The cameramen and women obviously need their camera and whatever stands they use with them. The sound guys and gals need their mics and telescoping poles to stay out of picture. And the lighting guys need their lights – but also need to power those lights. So today I wanted to focus on the lighting people’s must have set equipment.

A lot of the filming for the movie was done at night so lights were required. The lights were powered by some inverter generators by Yamaha because they’re quiet and powerful so as not to create sound issues while filming.

Also a critical piece of kit that I forgot to mention was the actors trailer. Since this film was not big budget trailers had to be shared.
