KATIE'S TOOL KIT!

We just can’t deny it. When we look back, we know we’ve had some seriously incredible opportunities to work on projects in all facets of the event and film industries. If you’ve been around for some time, you know and love some of our favorite projects just as much as we do - like this one! Or this one! Or, have you seen THESE?!

Here at Uncommon, we love sharing those perfectly crafted finished projects as much as we love sharing how the heck we bring that stuff to life. And the truth is that we have a LOT of tools that we rely on to make that magic happen.

We LOVE that we can pull back the curtain - orrrrr open our Dewalt Tough System Tool Kit - to show you the ordinary supplies that help us create some extraordinary things!

FIRST THINGS FIRST:

ATTIRE

The important thing is to find pieces that fit YOU!

Think: comfortable and functional with compartments to allow you to keep important tools on you while you’re moving around!

Trust us, this stuff isn’t glamorous, and yet, Nicole makes it all look gorgeous!

Our hope is to take away some of the mystery behind how we bring our projects from idea to installation. Even more so, we want to make sure that we impart as much knowledge as possible to those of you aspiring to build a portfolio in the event and film industries. If that’s you, we have two extra pieces of homework for you! We promise they don’t suck.

  1. Check out our Film Industry 101 post for extra insights!

  2. Tell us what YOU want to know about how we work and what we’ve learned. We really do want to share our insights on anything that YOU would find valuable. So let us know! hello@uncommoncs.com

Pack it up, Pack it in,

The Uncommon Team
