It’s that time of year again where everyone gets together, grills hot dogs, and tries to blow everything up but their hands.
This year July 4th falls on an awkward day, Thursday. That means some people, with their hands hopefully completely still intact, have to get back on the production wagon the Friday after festivities.
As is our custom we’ve asked so you don’t have to. So without further ado (and even fewer explosion jokes related to limb safety) here is our list of prop houses who will have their doors open for you this Friday, July 5th:
We see it all of the time in movies and television shows. Someone gets injured and they are now in the hospital. But where do you get all of the equipment needed to dress a room (or more) to look like a hospital without stealing everything from a hospital? That’s where Debbies Book always shines. We do not promote stealing.
A-1 Medical Integration
Patient handling equipment (such as stretchers and gurneys), OBGYN equipment, patient monitoring systems and much more. They are one of the 3 big medical emphasis prop houses around. Darren and his crew will set you up quickly and accurately for your next hospital dressing needs.
Alpha Companies – Spellman Desk
Alpha Companies is unique in that they have two specialties. Medical equipment and multiples of furniture. Need operating room equipment? They’ve got what you need to fill that room. Need waiting room dressing? Ding ding, that’s available too with cleared artwork, traditional furniture and even fake flowers for the dressing. You can easily find what you need for more than just the emergency and hospital equipment at this conveniently located prop house. They also have locations in Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta!
Angelus Medical & Optical Co., Inc.
What’s a better supplier for medical furniture and supplies than the guys that supply the real deal to actual hospitals and emergency services? Angelus Medical has been around probably the longest renting and selling equipment to the industry, but their main focus has always been supplying to the medical field. Need antique medical supplies? They’ve got that too. From exam room chairs to whatever hyfrecators are they can tell you what you need and supply it too.
Of course there are always other prop houses who supply smaller varieties of medical and hospital equipment but it never hurts to start with the experts!
For decades, Angelus Medical & Optical Co has been a go to for medical equipment for Television and Film production. They not only have the newest equipment, but antique medical supplies as well.
If you are doing a historical scene they can consult with you on the background of how the equipment was used. They also refurbish all of the equipment at their location. Plus if it’s a scene requiring multiple rooms of beds and machines they have the volume of supplies and equipment at their disposal to meet what you need.
