Organization is key in any type of shoot since it’s all too easy for the scene to get chaotic if you’re not prepared. Knowing where everything is so you can grab it quickly will save time and ensure everything goes smoothly. Arm yourself with the essential backstage equipment items below to stay organized.
3 Must-Have Organizational Backstage Equipment Pieces
1. Utility Carts
A utility cart is a portable and efficient way to get all your gear under control. You’ll need that equipment throughout the day, and these carts on wheels mean you can easily take everything wherever the shoot requires. Find one with a variety of storage options that also has casters and wheels, such as C-stands, hi-roller stands, or milk crates.
2. Camera Carts
Camera carts are designed to hold all your camera cases on one portable cart. Moving each case one by one is time-consuming when you need to get items out of your shot. Storing everything on a cart will save a lot of time between setups and scene changes. Look for an adjustable cart so you can fit your different-sized cases on each shelf depending on the day’s needs.
3. Mag Euroball Mounts
A Mag Euroball mount is a valuable addition to any cart. This mount with compartments is ideal for sorting smaller accessories and having them easily accessible. They can be mounted on the front or rear of your cart as needed.
