Salutations from LCS

We have some exciting news to announce:  LCS will be hosting a GearNex seminar on Saturday, March 5, 2011 from 10am to 2:30pm.  This seminar is FREE, but seating is VERY LIMITED to ensure small class size and personalized instruction.  Learn how to use a geared head, what the differences are between a geared head and a fluid head, and much more.  Attendees who complete the course will receive a certification in GearNex usage.  This precision camera head, created by CineToys, LLC, was a winner at last year's NAB show. Reserve your spot today!   RSVP to Mary at (818) 768-8935 or by e-mail:

On other fronts, LCS has had a run of fun rentals so far this year.  Priceline shot another comically kitsch commercial on our greenscreen stage starring the wonderful William Shatner.  Coincidentally, a few weeks later, Michael Dorn who portrayed Worf, the unflappable Klingon officer on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Bob Picardo, the ship's doctor from Star Trek: Voyager graced our stages.  It was a regular Star Fleet reunion.

Recently, the talented cast and crew of College Humor were here shooting some side-splitting sketches for some of their upcoming webisodes, and last month, a group of film students from Biola University shot a fantastic short on our spaceship sets for a school project.  Our clients really run the gamut, and that's what keep things interesting around here.

Just a reminder that we are still offering a 10% discount off our base stage rentals to Digital Cinema Society member.  For more information about the DCS and membership, you can visit their website at  LCS also offers student discounts (proof of student status required).

That's it for now, but be sure to check back regularly for updates.  And if you're in the neighborhood, stop in for a fresh cup o' joe.
