More Than You'll Ever Need to Know About Apple Boxes

Filmmaking, Link

Evan Luzi:

If you’re new to the film industry, it can be confusing to hear someone call for a few “pancakes” well past breakfast time. And what purpose could a box of apples serve those trying to make a movie?

The origin of the term “apple box” is murky, but its modern incarnation is used to describe a standard size wooden box on film sets. They’re a common piece of grip equipment and are used for a wide variety of purposes.

I love the attention to detail over at The Black and Blue. Now could you stand on a half-apple and Hollywood it for me? Thanks.
