Eclectic/Encore contains more than 1 million props in a discreet Long Island City warehouse. In the basement of a three-story warehouse in Long Island City, among an array of life-sized, open-mouthed plastic shark heads, Suri Bieler notices that something is missing.
A small rubber shark she had rented to the film "Sharknado 2" was gone, never returned with the rest of the fake fishes she had lent to the science-fiction disaster flick. "Maybe it's in 'Sharknado 3,'" she said, smiling. A slightly chipped Egyptian Phoenix sculpture crouches nearby, not far from a set of larger-than-life Russian nesting dolls and a mechanical Zoltan fortune-teller. Venetian furniture, Versailles-style chaise lounges, and 1950s-era desks fight for space on the floors above while Moroccan-style cushions and Chinese wall hangings are barely contained in in their designated areas.

The film industry has undergone major paradigm shifts in 2016. Before we explore this analysis, let's review the status quo. According to the Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA), the film industry has continued to generate a positive balance of trade, year over year, in every country where it does business (MPAA). The film industry not only increasingly promotes economic activities, but is also a major employer that supports millions of jobs and billions in wages. According to Statista, the U.S. filmed entertainment revenue in 2016 was at the highest it has ever been since 2012, reaching 29.93 billion U.S. dollars. PwC expects this figure to grow to 35.33 billion in 2019 (Statista). The direct-to-consumer "videoquake" is driving content distributors to create more segmented and affordable subscription rates, while apps are influencing how users experience media and entertainment as they become the primary content delivery platform (PwC). After intimately working with thousands of film and television productions since 1973, Packair is not only here to handle your shipping and logistics needs,

Without owning, you won't have to stick to any particular production equipment over long periods of time. You have the flexibility and freedom to employ the newest lenses, grips, lighting and sound gear on the block, month to month. Renting does not necessarily mean you will instantly save money compared to owning your own equipment. The most challenging renting question is - "what do you want versus what do you need?" The reason behind this perspective is to be mindful of whether or not the more expensive equipment will truly make a difference in what you are shooting. In business terms, return on investment (ROI) can be your renting compass when it comes to those tough decisions. Don't forget to get insurance on just about everything. The worst setback during the production process is suffering an expensive mistake that could have been prevented with simply buying insurance.
2. Master Logistics!
Organization and scheduling every detail is key. Knowing exactly what you need for how long will save you not only money but a lot of hassle when managing so many moving parts. Contacting a professional Logistics agent may assist with saving you future hassle. Packair
