New Year, New Location – Inter Video Makes Their First Move in 6 Years

What’s better than an Inter Video?

An Inter Video with a loading dock!

Dock it to me! Here’s a shot of their new spot for easy pickup/dropoff.

After 6 years at their location in Burbank Inter Video, a video sync/computer playback and technical set dressing company, is making a big move over to Valley Blvd. Now you can access their large inventory of all kinds of computers, monitors, televisions and projectors (not to mention other electronic dressing) with the comfort of easy pickup at their dock.

Is that both practical and prop related tech dressing or are you just happy to see me?

They are now closer to the Arts District, where a lot of Commercial and Event people are located, just off of Valley Blvd on the other side of the train tracks near ABC Caskets and Enox Events.

So go check them out at their new location:

Loading Dock:
4361 Valley Blvd.
Dock #11
Los Angeles, CA 90032


Offices (located in same building):
1919 Vineburn Ave,

[Auction Announcement] – Angel Appliances is Closing its Doors

Sepulveda, CA, August 17, 2017 – The very unique and trusted prop house Angel Appliances is closing its doors after more than 60 years of business: At 9 o’clock on Tuesday, August 22nd, both online and at their address (8545 N Sepulveda Blvd, North Hills, CA, 91343), the “doors” will open.

  • Please note: Props shown throughout the link – many toward end of list. Practical and cut-away props noted.

The auction itself will run from 11 to whenever their inventory is all accounted for and promises to have some very unique items available. For those familiar with Angel Appliances, you know that the items up for bid are going to include a wide array of brand new, vintage, antique, and down right unique appliances of many kinds. The list of items will include but not be limited to; refrigerators; stoves; washing machines; air conditioners; dishwashers; cooktops; venthoods; and more. They also will have items such as coin operated laundry machines and break room appliances.

It will be a loss to the set decor community no longer having all of these items in a single location. Their knowledge was an extra bonus to nabbing the appropriate piece. Of course, everyone is allowed to finally retire. Now is a chance for new homes to carry their torch (or pilot light in this case).

Now that we are finally in the month of October many of us are trying to figure out what to wear for Halloween. Many more of us are just shopping for costumes for the year too of course, but I can’t help but love a holiday that is purely centered around eating candy (and some pagan thing that I don’t think we really worry about anymore).

The Costume House is currently having a sale on their costumes (of which they have an incredibly large collection) as long as you bring in a printout of this flyer:
