Our Line Of Production Expendables Includes...
BlackWrap, black foil, and Cinefoil are all common names used to describe black aluminum foil. BlackWrap is used on set for a couple of different applications, but primarily for blocking out light. BlackWrap is a great way to block light from large industry lamps because it remains fairly unaffected by the heat they give off. Other light-blockers like Duvetyne or black show card can present fire hazards. The Expendables Recycler typically sells pro-rated partial rolls of BlackWrap and can sell new rolls when used supply runs out.
Lighting accounts for a great deal of the motion picture expendables that production companies need to purchase prior to shooting. EGT? CYX? FRK? FCM? FEV? Frosted light bulbs? Quartz Halogen light bulbs? Chances are your electricians will need a slew of these bulbs on-hand. Contact The Expendables Recycler with your lighting needs and we'll sift through our inventory to save you as much pre-production money as possible.
Camera operators and camera assistants need lots of motion picture supplies and most can be found at The Expendables Recycler. It's not just the expensive camera equipment that gets you the best shots - you still need the small stuff like adhesive tape, batteries, cable ties and zip ties, eyepiece cushions, lens tissue, chamois, lens fluid, and much, much more. Save on your camera department expendables by contacting us today with your requests!
China balls, Chinese lanterns, or paper lanterns are all common terms to describe lantern shades for creating soft light on set. China balls are usually constructed of paper and contain metal ribs to maintain shape. The China ball is perfect for creating pleasant skin tones on film, and ranges in size to account for various light strengths. You can find China balls at The Expendables Recycler, with or without the light bulb socket and cord.
Cube taps are necessary little devices that plug into wall outlets to turn that one outlet into 3. These are necessary for any production shoot since so much powered equipment is necessary - save on these little guys compared to what you'd find at hardware or retail expendable shops by using recycled cube taps we've collected!
Diffusion softens shadows, helps hide wrinkles, and eliminates multiple shadows from Kino-Flo fixtures. Diffusion filters can be costly. Try The Expendables Recycler first for all of your diffusion needs - where you can get partial rolls of a variety of diffusions.
Duvetyne is a black fabric used in backdrops on film sets or in smaller rolls that are used to block out unwanted light. Call The Expendables Recycler for your Duvetyne needs and see how we can save you money by selling you pro-rated rolls and purchasing back your excess. We have Duvetyne in quantities as low as two yards.
Male quick-ons? Add-a-taps? Hubbells? Wire nuts? These aren't just funny names, they're essential electrical connectors for any on-set electrician. Contact The Expendables Recycler for all of your lighting and electrical needs - we can save you money by supplying connectors that were purchased for other shows, but never got used.
Foamcore and beadboard are materials that are used by lighting professionals on set to bounce a soft light during a shoot. They are often taped back-to-back to give the grips a choice on the set.
Mustard Yellow? Half C.T. Blue? Quarter Minus Green? Scuba Blue? Lighting gels are an essential part of creating ambience and color effects in your film shoot. They can also cost an arm and a leg. Using The Expendables Recycler allows you to get smaller quantities of more colors. Contact The Expendables Recycler today for all of your lighting supplies and needs - we'll even buy them back after the shoot.
Whether it's manila rope, sash cord, mason line, or multi-line, The Expendables Recycler knows that just about every set needs rope - and very few sets use it all. Save on your rope needs by letting us browse our collection of used production expendables and buy with confidence knowing we'll buy it back from you when you wrap everything up.
Rubber matting can be your production team's best friend. Rubber matting is used as a safety standard for providing non-slip surfaces, covering lines of cable, and providing an additional layer of insulation. Contact The Expendables Recycler and see if we can provide previously used or partial rolls of rubber matting for your next shoot.
Show card is typically 2-sided cardboard designed to reflect light. It is used for a variety of on-set applications as light reflectors, runners and cue cards. The Expendables Recycler sells them individually in all types: black/white, matte silver, hard silver, matte gold, and hard gold.
Whether it's dulling sprays, streaks 'n tips, lens spray, Pledge or WD-40, The Expendables Recycler can stock you with previously used sprays or new sprays when supply is low. Cut your production costs by contacting us today - we'll browse our inventory of recycled expendables to get you taken care of before your next shoot.
Tape is one of the most commonly used tools on production sets. Whether you need gaffers tape, paper tape, spike tape, camera tape, or ATG tape, The Expendables Recycler can reduce your production costs by selling you pro-rated rolls. We've also got a wide selection of new tape that we can sell you if our recycled stock is low. Contact us today to see how much of your production supplies we can find from our low-cost recycled stock!
Tracing paper is another one of those production expendables that proves extremely costly - rolls are typically in the 3-figure price range and many shoots will frequently have leftover or unused rolls of tracing paper. If you need to cover some windows, but don't need a full roll, give us a call!
Visqueen, or polyethylene, is a synthetic plastic roll similar in material to trash bags. It's available in either clear or black rolls and has a huge range of uses in production such as protecting staged gear from water or weather, lining floors, etc. The Expendables Recycler commonly has partial rolls of Visqueen, helping you reduce production expendables costs and eliminating waste from shoots.
Zip cord is another necessary element in any electrician's arsenal, and is actually quite common electrical cabling used in many household appliances. It's common for 18 gauge zip cord to be used frequently on set, but many film shoots often have leftovers as well. Save on pro-rated spools of zip cord by contacting The Expendables Recycler for all your production expendables needs.
