WHO WE ARE

ISS began when Gregg Bilson, Sr., started renting props out of his house – 40 years, an old Lockheed Hangar, and a 150,000 sq. ft. warehouse later, Independent Studio Services still feels like home. Now headquartered out of our Sun Valley, CA, facility, ISS has become the world’s largest prop house. With locations spread across 11 cities throughout the U.S. and Europe, we are Hollywood’s one-stop shop for prop, graphic, and manufacturing needs.

OVER 1.5M PROPS

Our main facility sits on 17 acres and not a corner of it is empty. And that’s just our Sunland warehouse! To keep up with the past, present, and future, our stock is constantly evolving. From the most blaring details to the most minute, ISS has what you need to get from script to screen.

Whether you have a “blank check budget” or are producing your first student film, we have the equipment, personnel, and trend-setting tools to make your production a success. ISS has been a family-owned company since day one, and when you walk through our doors, you’re family, too.

WE HAVE THE LARGEST PRIVATE ARMORY IN NORTH AMERICA

With over 15,000 live firearms in our ever-expanding inventory we can cater to all of your production’s weapons-related needs. If it exists, we already own it or we can find it. If you can think it, we can create it. We are constantly supplementing our weapons inventory to include not only the most up-to-date products and weaponry, but also honoring the extensive history of firearms.

In addition to providing weapons from any era – past, present, and future – we also offer consulting, armorers & gunsmiths, tactical/weapons training, and ammunition services in conjunction with our sister company, High Desert Theatrical Blanks.
