Red Herring Motion Picture Lighting was started in Massachusetts in 1998 by Dave Cambria of Boston College and Frans Weterrings of Boston University.
They started Red Herring with a small truck and a small amount of equipment. Now, almost 20 years later — and with the help of the Massachusetts tax incentive — Red Herring is a multi-million dollar company. With several trucks and an extensive collection of state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to help support the many local crew members that make these films happen right here in Massachusetts!
We both have families of our own to support now. We have responsibilities to our families, to our employees, and to the several businesses that we work with on a daily basis.
Films only come to Massachusetts because of the tax incentive, and the loss of the film business would have a huge negative impact to Red Herring Motion Picture Lighting.
