Hey everyone,

I just want to alert you that for the just released 4th Edition of his “Set Lighting Technician’s Handbook,” Harry Box has put together a free companion website called "Box Book Extras." The website includes the source material used for the handbook, articles by Harry Box published in other periodicals, related websites, a list of production oriented i-phone apps, as well as more in depth discussion of topics touched upon in the handbook.

For instance the section on generators (above) includes a detailed description of generator operation from the initial walk around inspection to proper shut down procedure. Other topics include basic troubleshooting of mechanical and electrical problems, grounding, and how to operate more lights on a putt-putt than has ever been possible before. Use this link for the informative "Box Book Extras."

Best of all, there is a photo gallery of on-set photos and videos from all kinds of productions showing some really incredible rigs, cool lighting setups, great applications of technology and ingenuity of all kinds.
