Manufacturer of high quality video, film and audio production gear cases becomes a sponsor partner of forthcoming film about motorcycle icon John Penton.

FULLERTON, CA (April 2, 2013) —As the production for The John Penton Story film gets into high gear beginning April 18th, the production crew is confident their gear will arrive in top condition thanks to SKB Cases of Orange, CA coming on as an official sponsor of the production. SKB is a manufacturer of high-quality equipment cases for the military, music, sports and in this instance, professional audio/visual industries. For this production, SKB will be supplying cases to carry various cameras, (including new GoPro cases), tripods, lighting, audio and grip gear as the crew travels around the United States and to Europe this summer.

The crew and equipment will travel to Amherst, OH several times, St, Louis, Chicago, TX, Sacramento and then to Austria, Italy, Russia and more. It’s extremely important that the production’s equipment arrives in perfect condition to perform as it was designed.

“To have a company like SKB Cases join this production and help get our gear to all these locations safely is comforting,” said Todd Huffman, the films’ Producer at Pipeline Digital Media (PDM). “Their products are really superior in the market we are very happy they are partnering with us and others to make this film happen.”

PDM’s crew have already been working with SKB’s team on picking the right SKB case application for the various pieces of equipment taking into account, item, size, weight, capacity, durability and security. The traveling crew has to travel light for budget and logistics reasons.

“SKB is pleased to be part of this project and happy that we can do our part to make sure this production is successful,” said Kathy Galbraith, Media Manager at SKB Cases.”

The production of the film will begin in April and conclude later this summer as post-production begins in the fall for the films release in Spring of 2014.
