Palm Springs, FL (May 17, 2011) –
The G-Star Studios and School of the Arts proudly announces its
new partnership with CineVideoTech (CVT), one of Florida’s
oldest and largest motion picture lighting, grip and camera
companies, located in Miami and Orlando. CVT will expand its
operations to include the G-Star Studios with permanent

CVT will be at the G-Star School of the Arts on Friday, May 20th
with 30 cameras and major equipment to train the students in all

CVT was founded in 1968 by Egon Stephan, Sr., a legend in the
Florida Film Industry. The company’s legacy is carried on today
by his son, Egon Stephan, Jr., having supplied the film
equipment for the latest The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part

Cameron Diaz), Dexter, CSI: Miami, Burn Notice, Ali(Will Smith),

of Ages with Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
CVT has worked with Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, HBO,
20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Tri-Star Pictures, MGM/UA,
Viacom Productions, Orion, Columbia Pictures and HBO/Disney.
CVT was the first to bring Arri Cameras into Florida. CVT
provided the state with the first helicopter mounts, the first
Florida Panavision agency, the first Moviecams, the first
complete one-stop motion picture rental shop and numerous others
over its 43-year history. The spirit of innovation lives on
today with their RED cameras and PL mounted Canon 7Ds as well as
their unmatched LED lighting inventory.
