Photo by Kate Grewal When we were approaching our five-year anniversary, we knew we needed to rebrand the company to reflect what we’ve grown since our start. What we didn’t realize is how big and beautiful the extent of the rebranding could be. That’s all thanks to designer Melissa Yeager, the mastermind of Grey House’s look & feel, who continues…

The Future of Production in a COVID World

Photo by Marita Kavelashvili on Unsplash June 2020 update: Read about our first shoot back.  For producers, being forced to shelter in place — to sit still — is especially hard.

California Labor Law Loophole for Print Productions SB 671 HAS PASSED!

And a HUGE thank you to Prime Casting for leading the charge on this pivotal amendment. For years Prime Casting had been hearing from producers about talent (and their attorneys) filing claims for the "waiting time penalties" which simply state that if a talent isn't paid their wages upon wrap, the producer/photographer/agency is left responsible to pay a penalty which…

It’s Easy Being Green: Practicing Sustainability On Set

Earth Day is a natural reminder to think about our daily approach to sustainability and recycling. But when so much of our day-to-day is spent on set, the good habits we practice at home don’t always translate. Though we still have a long ways to go toward zero waste on set, we’ve managed to incorporate some key Earth-friendly practices into…
