Where Movies Get Their Vintage Electronics

Where Movies Get Their Vintage Electronics

This fascinating video pulls back the curtain on how movies source vintage electronics as props for their productions. It’d surely take a nice bit of coin to pay rent and build up the necessary amount of inventory to make this a viable business venture. However, old electronics are regularly thrown away (or donated for free), so we imagine the real investment here is doing all the legwork in finding and acquiring it all!

Deep in Brooklyn, there's a warehouse that supplies vintage electronics to film and movie sets.
