By Clint Milby | December 20, 2011

Winner of numerous ProMax awards in 2011, Sweden-based, boutique production company Brokendoll has garnered acclaim with their self-described "visually intense" high end productions for advertising, television and web. You might think a company with this level of initial success would also have goals of growing, but according to Brett Richards, Brokendoll is intent on keeping their footprint small to maintain the quality of their productions, "It is important to the quality of the production that we have the right team on each job, so we avoid large, in house teams to maximize our flexibility."

Redrock Micro Brings Order To Unruly Cables

Innovative microTies Promise To Tie Up Loose Ends

By Clint Milby | September 15, 2011

Your cat may like them. If you have a touch of OCD you might enjoy unraveling a nice ball of wires to calm your nerves.   However, disconnect a power cable on a light or your HDMI cable during a shoot and it could cost you a shot, which could cost you a job. Especially for the HDSLR shooters, the myriad of wired accessories continues to grow, and so do the chances of you getting tied up knots. Electric tape or grip tape work, but they aren't very dependable, and they make your cables and rig sticky. There's the velcro ties, but they're like socks that some how vanish without a trace. So what's the solution? Enter Redrock Micro's microTies.
