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,

LCW Props

LCW Special Web PicI have a tendency to miss happy hour specials (and McDonalds breakfast specials), but one special that never has a time limit is at LCW Props!

LCW Special Web Pic 2Their ‘This Month’s Specials’ menu always has something interesting and practical. So for all you bargain hunters out there (including the late ones like me) they’ve always got their specials on display on their website. Not to mention they’ve got many of their props inventoried and searchable on their website so check them out.

Not web savvy? Give them a face to face visit, and take a stroll down prop lane… but I highly recommend trying their website searches too. It’s like Neo and Trinity gearing up in the Matrix when isles of stuff zip past them like speeding trains. LCW Props’ search engine is kind of like that only with a Happy Hour/Month! I bet Neo and Trinity had to pay full price.

Airwaves Wireless

4fNN65N2zmZvAAAAAASUVORK5CYII=The crew of White House Down certainly had no fear of losing wireless communication on set. Why? Because they used Airwaves Wireless to keep connected. Yes, the airwaves might have been full of choppers and airplane communications, but the production’s smartphones and mobile walkie-talkies were up and running strong.

So the next time you need wireless communication equipment—smartphones, satellite phones, mobile internet, walkie-talkies and more—check out Airwaves Wireless.

Modern Props

vYyE62spfN7GY7+9nQjra0p53sCAAAOw==What’s in a name? You’d think that all you’d find at Modern Props are futuristic and modern items for rent. Not true. Just perusing their chair selection online, you’ll see everything from hand-carved Rococo style to low lounge modern.

There’s also dressing for a variety of settings. Modern Props can dress an airport from lobby chairs to the ticket counter. And those Eames public seating airport benches are polished and ready to fly, as well as some walk through metal detectors.

But you should really swing by to see the collection because the Web never does justice to the quality and quantity Modern has. That’s one of the great things about Modern – they have multiples in their inventory, perfect for dressing a large space.

And not to worry, Modern has an extremely large selection of accessories for all the smalls you’ll need too, including some interesting unique items like their Santa Claus Lamps

Modern Props

When I was first introduced to Modern Props, it was all about modern − or I should say the future. The folks there fabricated all kinds of modern electronics − lasers, electronic panels, computer consoles. Needing anything sci-fi meant making a run over to Modern Props.

Even the employees wore jumpsuits, like they were ready for takeoff. But that was when Modern Props was located on Redwood Ave. in Los Angeles.

Now the company is on Jefferson Blvd., and its inventory is more than just out of this world. They have increased their inventory to include (but not limited to): art, paintings, furniture, hand props, appliances, audio equipment, ATM machines, medical equipment, score boards, space shuttle, surveillance equipment, airport security systems, asian antiques and so much more.

Along with super low production rates, you might be surprised by what you’ll find!

Woody’s Electrical Props

Even before sci-fi was hip, there was Woody and his futuristic props.  Woody was one of the first to start up a prop house building desk consoles and radio station dressing. His vision was high tech. He was ahead of his time.

My first connection with Woody was in 1977. He was the go-to guy for monitors, turntables, desk consoles and radio station dressing. Back then, Woody was on Wicks in Sun Valley. Now, Woody’s is located in North Hollywood on Craner Ave.

He has remained true to his vision, creating the best electronic dressing for mission control, computer rooms and military sets. Fantasy filmmakers need only to go to Woody’s to create that high-tech, sci-fi, futuristic look they need.

LCW Prop House

In the early 90’s Mark Ringleberg called me to visit his new shop in Glendale. At the time he had been selling to all the local prop houses and wanted to actually be a Prop House himself.  “Hummm, nope. Sorry, you’re not a Prop House, you’re a vendor that can be listed in multiple areas.” Prop House are a very special group of businesses, and I make no exceptions.

Every year I’d visit Mark and my answer was always the same for him. “Nope… not a Prop House.” “Ok,” he’d say with that big grin of his. This went on year after year until one day in 1997 I walked into his facility and was blown away by his inventory and set up.

It was very clear that LCW had arrived, big time, into the business of being a Hollywood Prop House.

LCW is family run with lots of Mark’s sons, in-laws, and grandkids beginning to take on a larger role in running the day to day operations. To this day LCW is still growing so stop by and see what he’s got.
