Matthews Studio Equipment addresses evolving support needs with latest kit, tailored for constant travelers.
Matthews Studio Equipment is rolling out several tools this year to address the changing face of support. First up is the Trio C+ Traveler Kit, which addresses the needs of crews who are constantly on the road.
“Last year we talked to everyone from seasoned grips to content creators to see what they needed to make productions run more smoothly,” explains MSE Executive Vice-President Tyler Phillips. “Everyone said they needed a way to get their bulky gear from the vehicle to set without busting their knuckles. They love our RoadRags and RoadFlags kits, but the sore thumb, literally, is the C-Stands. So, we streamlined the experience and created the C-Stand Rolling KitBag.”
The C-Stand Rolling KitBag is fully customizable with padded Velcro dividers strong enough to hold an array of C-Stands and accessories. Featuring high-density silicon skate wheels, it’s easy to roll to and from set.
“Once we had the C-Stand Rolling KitBag done, it was a no-brainer to make it a kit,” says Phillips.
Enter the Trio C+ Traveler Kit, which takes the Matthews Rolling KitBag and fills it with three of the 40” C+ Stand Kits (removable turtle base C-Stands, Gobo Arms and Heads).
“The creator out there with a three-light kit, whether it’s tungsten, florescent or LED, should have a RoadFlags or RoadRags kit and the Trio C+ Traveler Kit,” says Phillips. “These tools will give them the edge and the ability to really illuminate their talent.”
The Trio C+ Traveler kit is priced at $1,049 on MSE's website.
