Where to Find Gambling Equipment, Dressing and Dealers

Everyone who is anyone is there. Glasses are overflowing with champagne from bottles worth more than the average income of the lower classes in his district. Girls, music and gambling abound. Poker tables, blackjack, roulette, the works.

The shady mayor is running for reelection. He’s a shoe-in, no one dares to run against him. That’s why undercover cop Hugh Watcherself is here. The mayor is always good to those that are in his posse and Hugh finally got an in. All of the mayor’s cronies get on to the “fundraising” event boat to start off his campaign with a bang. Hopefully no one suspects Detective Watcherself…

Everyone knows gambling equipment. Heck most people have stepped into at least one casino at some point (others quite a few casinos in the last week). It makes sense that casinos should have all the necessary gizmos, gadgets and accessories but where does a production or event get them?

It’s just one dang scene/event so no one needs to buy them! Why take a gamble with a random company when you can just ask Debbies Book?

Blacklist Sony LogoIf you’ve heard of Sony Pictures Studios, you’ve probably heard of their hit TV show Blacklist – and if you haven’t heard of Sony Pictures, you may have found this blog by mistake and it’s your first time on what we call “The Internet.” Welcome! And yes, everything you read on said “Internet” is true. I know, crazy huh?

In the show Blacklist criminal mastermind Red Redding twists the countries crime fighting agents to do his bidding using his cunning and influence. It is one of those dramas that reveal, in this case, Sony Pictures’ incredible resources as a studio, which is nothing new. I really like Blacklist is my point.

The wonderful thing about studio prop houses is that you can come across what is quickly becoming a century’s worth of cinematic history, and then proceed to rent it. A couple of years ago Sony moved their Prop House to Culver City, conveniently right off of the freeway. Friendly staff, a great drapery department in the back and costuming right around the corner, and a long list of prop rentals are awaiting you there.

Be like Red Redding and take advantage of the resources available to you at Sony Pictures Studios for the betterment of the world.

Yes… that’s it… the betterment of the wooooorld.
