The term ‘Century Stand’ goes back to the early days of motion picture production. Before there was artificial lighting the stages would revolve to allow for continuous overhead lighting from the sun. Large reflectors would be positioned to bounce or kick the overhead light up onto the stage and illuminate the set and actors. These reflectors were made in many sizes but it seems the most popular was the 100 inch, or ‘century’, sized reflector. In later years, studios, grips and gaffers began to manufacture the earliest versions of what we now call C-Stands. The original C-Stands had welded bases that did not fold up or adjust but the fact that they easily nested together made them invaluable on the stage. Century Stands or ‘C’ stands are an important component in the image maker’s arsenal of tools. The unique staggered leg design allows C-Stands to be nested and therefore be placed extremely close to one another on set. The lower leg can also be slid under many objects. The C+ offers a removable base for the risers, making disassembly for travel simple and easy without being cumbersome or having the awkwardness typical of other manufacturers. The sliding leg allows for use on stairs, off curbs and even as high as a desk or countertop. Patents applied for and pending. Fast, easy opening and closing.

Machined from solid steel, the Stand/SPUD Adapter is exceptionally strong. Used to convert Junior 1-1/2" female to Baby 5/8" male. The Hollywood grip head is the strongest and most popular grip had in the industry. Plates feature 3/8" and 5/8" mounting holes. Matthews Hollywood Arms are made of Stainless Steel and can come in black finish as well. T-Handles are ergonomically designed to allow for fast, efficient, safe tightening with little effort. Comes with our Hollywood Grip Head attached to one end, the strongest Grip Head in the business, and an additional Grip Head for positioning. Sandbags are used whenever you need extra weight to prevent tipping. You usually "bag" stands, especially when the weight is off center, such as with a heavy Scrim. They help stabilize equipment in windy situations and can counter balance Boom Arm applications. Matthews fills our Sandbags with sanitized sand to prevent algae growth if they get damp. The empty bags are completely sewn except for a 1" seam, left open for the user to fill and then sew closed. This can save on the shipping charges, however, the user will require a heavy duty machine to sew the sandbag closed properly. The Matthbags and the Fly-A-Way bags are a must for the traveling photographer. The bags come empty, and can be filled on site with rocks, gravel, or whatever. The Fly-A-Way has a Velcro strip to seal it and the Matthbag has 4 zippers.

Newly designed 90 degree Flag and Cutter frames will make it possible to position the instrument over the top of the set wall or to use two or more units to create a box for better light control. With this new design, there are now three square corners as opposed to the older design providing just two. In addition, the 48"x48" frames have been squared off with the removal of the mouse ears. Flags are square or rectangular frames with mounting pins attached and covered with a solid cloth material. They are used to control light, whether natural or artificial. Flags can be used to protect the camera lens from flares or to control spill light from other sources, or to keep light from reaching certain areas on the set. Known as Flags larger or more irregular sizes are referred to as Cutters. Floppies are Cutters which have an extra layer of material sewn to one edge and held in place with Velcro until needed at which time the Flag or Cutter becomes twice its original size. Use the number with a (B) after it for Bottom Hinge and the number with a (T) after to specify Top Hinge. See Pin configuration illustration shown below. All Matthews Scrims and Flags are bordered with heavy duty color coded webbing.  Open End Frames are made of spring steel with a 3/8" pin and support which can be used to hang the Scrim from a C Stand handle when not in use. The two upright arms of the frame are slotted at the two open ends to retain the piano wire woven through the fabric to make up the fourth side of the frame without causing a shadow. Open Ends are used to control or manipulate light falling on certain areas of the set or subject. They can be used to soften or reduce light without a noticeable edge. A color coded binding is used around the frame to identify the fabric. Matthews Open End Frames are black powder coated to minimize unwanted reflections. All 12" x 18" Open End Scrims weigh 0.50lbs except 149169 Triple Scrim - Black, which weighs 1lbs.
