Synopsis: The Black Hills Film Festival is excited to share this brief seminar by Tracy Mailloux of Gator Grip and Lighting.
In this short and informative tutorial, Tracy introduces us to one of the most un-sung heroes of the production industry, the Century Stand or C-stand.
Tracy covers the do’s and don’t’s of this simple yet sometimes challenging device and provides a solid understanding for students not yet familiar with the C-Stand.
Bonus Content of introduction to some basic clamps used in the industry as well!
