Surprise Gift

LASD (Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department) Alumni Meeting counselor and friend Richard Badger and I went to the National Association of Broadcasters convention (NAB) in Las Vegas recently.  On our way there, we dropped by to pick-up a special gift built by one of our HOLLYWOOD IMPACT STUDIOS former students, Charles Roseland, and his wife.   SANY0037


You would probably never guess what it is, so I’ll tell you.  It’s a box to hold our grip flags.  So what is a grip flag? It’s a large piece of material on a metal frame that is placed in front of a movie light.   These flags are very expense to buy or fix. At HOLLYWOOD IMPACT STUDIOS we try very hard to be good stewards of the equipment that is donated to us, so when Charlie saw that we were using a cardboard box as a flag box he told us he’d build us one. Thus our special gift.



I told Richard to get in the picture…no, he’s not that short, he’s just silly. Charlie and Amberly, thank you so much for all your hard work in building our flag box, it will be put to good use.
