Lucky for them, a gaffer on the show recommended a Voltstack® 5k e-Generator as a solution. “This was the first time they had been exposed to the Voltstack® technology,” Parker says. The technocrane had its own Voltstack® 5k portable power station which meant the team got silent, reliable power without any of the cable hassles. A separate VOLTstack powered the production team’s sound, battery cart for cameras and supplemental LED lighting.
In addition to creating a sustainable film set by supplying silent, continuous power with no tripping hazards the Voltstack® 5k e-Generator saved the production an estimated $1,500/week! As you can imagine, the rave reviews never stopped.
“Once they were done, they didn’t have to wait for a bunch of electricians to wrap the cable, re-run it in a different direction or pick up cable crossovers,” Parker says. “It was as simple as throwing a few single extension chords, and gang boxes on top of the VOLTstack and wheeling it to the truck.”
