Filmsticks Reveals New Accessory Range For Filmmakers & Photographers

- 3 years ago

Ever since the British filmmaking manufacturer, Filmsticks, redefined the iconic clapper stick in 2019, the products have quickly grown to become the standard in clapper board design. Subsequently, loyal customer feedback has driven the development of this brand new accessories range that has been designed and film industry professionals in mind. This means they’ll also be great for photographers who are looking for solid, reliable accessories for their kit bags.

Filmsticks’ all-weather clapper sticks and acrylic slates come in various sizes, from the full-sized monsters that you’ll recognise from many a film set, right down to the nano-sticks that are perfect for bloggers and smartphone filmmakers. They’ve been adopted by the global film community as the new industry standard and with the launch of the brand’s first accessories, we can see a growing pipeline of high-quality products that represent the rapidly expanding Filmsticks ecosystem.

The transparent top and bottom panel design of the cases allows users to locate items quickly, without the need to open the case, saving precious and potentially frustrating time when on a critical shoot. Accessing equipment is extremely simple with the case opening, and staying open, to a complete 180-degrees, allowing for easy access and organisation of contents.

The tough main body panels are produced of flexible EVA [Ethylene Vinyl Acetate] with coloured nylon mesh and matching zippers. With five different colours available in each size, users can easily identify types of equipment by colour coding and simple labelling on the outside of each case.
