How did we get our name.
What is our purpose.
Hollywood Production Asset Recovery and
Tracking System (Hollywood PARTS, LLC)
is a web-based business to serve the entertainment industry
by helping production companies identify, recover, track, barcode,
photograph, transport, store, manage and eventually sell or
rent online, Movie Props, Movie Wardrobe, Movie Vehicles purchased or created in
the making of all types of entertainment media.
Billions of dollars are spent each
year by the entertainment industry to purchase movie props, movie wardrobe and movie vehicles as well as movie set dressing to use on screen and off to create the entertainment we enjoy
today. When the production is complete, many of these goods
become “assets” of the production companies. There
is a serious need to manage these assets in a more responsible
and efficient manner than is currently utilized. Presently,
assets from productions are routinely lost, stolen, stored
in leaky containers or dusty warehouses. They are rarely re-used
because the production staff most familiar with them are gone
or involved in another production. Routinely, the same types
of assets are repeatedly purchased. Production executives
making the decisions do not always know what is in storage
due either to inaccurate inventories or no “check in/check
out” capabilities of the companies storing them. Often,
assets worth thousands of dollars are sold for pennies due
to rising storage costs or a lack of knowledge of the asset’s
original cost. Studio executives have expressed the need for
better real-time information regarding assets disposition-
allowing them to make more informed decisions.
Hollywood Parts LLC was created to fill this ever- growing need to better manage movie props, movie wardrobe and movie vehicles as well as all other production assets.
