30wM: Using a C-Stand

By Micah McWhorter

They have been a helping hand when they are needed most. They have embarrassed you beyond redemption. They have been your best friend and your worst enemy all in the same day. C-stands.

I think every filmmaker has had a c-stand make them look like a complete amateur on set at least once in their life. They’re big, bulky and seemingly illogical. How you set up a C-stand often tells your department heads whether or not you know what your doing. So setting them up quickly and securely is of the utmost importance.

Check out this weeks episode of 30 Seconds with Mike as Micah McWhorter shows us the proper way of setting up, taking down and storing a C-stand. Avoid a potential safety hazard by investing 30 seconds with Mike.
