The following productions demonstrate just a few of the many exclusive features of the Porta-Grid System that enable it to turn any ordinary drop-ceiling into a full blown studio grid. The same features that made the Porta-Grid System so effective on each of these productions, will also make it effective on your productions. By virtue of the fact that it worked under the nearly impossible circumstances described here, when nothing else would, proves that it is sure to work anywhere, anytime, under any circumstances - site unseen. The Porta-Grid System is the best production tool you can have in your bag of tricks when shooting under drop ceilings.
