Filmsticks to exhibit at IBC

Sep 6, 2023

Filmsticks designs and manufactures the highest quality all-weather clapperboard sticks, slates and accessories for the Film Industry. Its line of lightweight, resin sticks have been dubbed a game changer by professional camera assistants. Filmsticks Resin Sticks were created by established clapper loaders and have been developed over years of testing on the world’s most influential film sets.

At IBC, Filmsticks will be exhibiting its general accessories used by ACs worldwide, including its Industry Standard Clapper Sticks, ClapperBoard Kits, TPU FCASE Pouches, T-Handle screwdrivers for all camera plates, T-Marker kits for camera and actor/talent marks, hex key kits, cable ties and more.

The company is also showing the new concept Hinge Design to allow camera assistants to attach a clapperboard behind their back whilst working on set and keeping their hands free.  Designed by Max Graham, this system works with Filmsticks Medium and Small Sticks (and will be compatible with our new collaborative product with 4130), and has already been used on many production sets.

Filmsticks is also launching the new collaboration between 4130 and Filmsticks, “Gripsticks”.  4130 designs bespoke slates for the Motion Picture Film and Television Industry, and together we have come up with a new innovative design of patented clapper stick that combines the technical excellence of 4130’s engraving and printing know-how, coupled with the on set production experience with clapperboards,  with the Filmsticks concept of Resin sticks.  Integrated within this product is what’s fondly called “Hexatite Technology” which will allow securing of the slate to the sticks in seconds.  After successful trials on production set, Filmsticks is pleased to announce this new product at IBC on the CW Pavilion.
