Matthews Studio Equipment Selected as Prime Supplier of Grip and Lighting Control Devices for Hollywood Rentals- Budapest Facility.

Burbank, CA. February 2010. Matthews Studio Equipment, recent winner of the “Exporter of the Year” award from the U.S. Department of Commerce has shipped multiple quantities of over 465 different items of grip and lighting control products to Origo/Raleigh Studios and Hollywood Rental, Budapest. The shipment, which costs out in the high six-figure range, not only shows MSE’s capability to fill large orders but also Raleigh’s confidence in this 40-year-old privately owned manufacturer of grip and lighting control equipment.

“Hollywood Rentals has had a longstanding and productive relationship with Matthew Studio Equipment,” says Kelly Koskella, President of Hollywood Rentals. “Over the years, both parties have complimented each other’s business by sharing technical input. HR is one of many companies that highly respect MSE for its substantial place in the industry. We look forward to continuing our valuable association with Matthews for many years to come.”

ORIGO/Raleigh Studios, Hollywood Rentals Budapest, is opening in April 2010. The studio boasts nine sound stages, including a super stage 45,000 sq. ft. and 65-feet of grid. To fill the growing need for productions that have chosen to shoot in Hungary, the studio will also feature a 15-acre back lot, a full production training school, and state-of-the-art post production facility as well as a digital film laboratory.

“Matthews became involved in this project over two years ago,” states Robert Kulesh, Matthews’ Vice President Sales and Marketing. “Matthews’ products were recommended and specified because Origo is anticipating a wide range of international productions,” Kulesh continued. “And, Origo insisted that all equipment on their stages be the highest quality and familiar to international production technicians no matter where they came from for their Hungarian production.”

In addition to supplying a full complement of over 1,400 lighting support, grip and lighting control devices to productions in over 67 countries throughout the world, Matthews manufacturers many unique pieces of support equipment including Doorway Dollies, The Ed Dolly and a wide range of camera support devices and systems. As always, MSE supplies technology that compliments your imagination.
