Danny Boldroff, a Local 80 Grip and also the owner of Ragtime Inc. and Global Backings, felt the need to improve controlling the spread and focusing of film and video LED lighting. Although others had made egg crates, he felt that most did not hold their shape very well which diminished their capacity to evenly control and focus the light. After many hours of research and development we feel that we have a superior product to control and focus light using a soft "travel friendly fabric." Honeycrates™ unique shape and detailed construction hold their shape better with less sag. The unique “slip on” mounting system makes it easy to install in about ¼ of the time.
Another original feature designed into every slip on style Honeycrate™ is the sewn in “bootie” which controls the light that normally leaks between a traditional egg crate and the overhead frame.
Our newest creations, the Honeycrates™ “Overhead and Light Box allows us to offer Honeycrates™ in both Overhead ( a standard single grip overhead frame) and Light Box (a custom designed frame that ties two grip overhead frames together with a 6” distance between the blanket light source frame and the diffusion frame).
To have a family orientated, customer focused company that provides impeccable customer service that is unrivaled in our industry.
