Art Department Resource Guide is a sister company to the Reel Directory
, a know
and trusted brand for 30+ years. The Reel Directory
provides everything you need for a
successful shoot in Northern California, including Crew, Equipment, Talent & Support
Service. However, the art department is so vast, that a comprehensive database can’t fit into
the confines’ of the traditional Reel Directory
format. Therefore, through the amazing
support of all of our Art Dog friends we are now able to offer a detailed comprehensive tool
to support all of our Bay Area Art Crew and Design Media Professionals.
The printed version of iVisaul is 8 ½” x 11” hardbound and will be shrink-wrapped and
distributed along with the Reel Directory
. The directories enjoy extensive distribution
through a national book distribution house so it can be accessed in most major books stores
and libraries. iVisual
& Reel Directory
are also distributed through direct on-line purchase,
parties, events, conventions, tradeshows and local film commission offices.
Many thanks to all of you who consulted with us, we look forward to an open dialogue
about how we can better support your needs. We listened to all of your suggestions and
found that we could implement many services that would expedite your search for Props, Set
Elements, Wardrobe and Special Effects Equipment. Each listing includes contact
information, web and email links, hours of operation and a detailed description of inventory
and services. So, weather looking for a police car or bathroom sink, you can click through
to several web sites to search for what you need. We hope to not only cut down on your
workload but also your carbon footprint. The film industry, especially the art department is
notorious for wasteful practices that harm the environment. That is why we are educating
and encouraging the support of GREEN
businesses in the entertainment industry. In fact,
you will have the option to narrow your search by GREEN
businesses in the drop down
menu. You can click on the
icons to learn more about what makes the company
a green business. If they have multiple icons that means they are certified GREEN
by a third
While the majority of the resources listed in the iVisual
guide are based in Northern
California, on occasion we feel it is helpful to supplement with mail order or Hollywood
resources that may be difficult to find locally. You will have the ability to sort by region or
county to better refine your search.
With hundreds categories and thousands of keywords, we are confident you can find what
you need. However, if you have exhausted the on-line and printed directories and still can’t
find what you are looking for, call our support hotline (415) 531-9758 and we will do our
best to assist you. By calling the support line, you have access to an Art Department insider
with over 30+ years experience working in the Bay Area. The support line is intended to
help in the search for hard to find items. However, all calls related to database,
administration or advertising should be directed to our office at (415) 531-9760.
