Every time someone buys one of LiteGear’s popular LiteMat lighting fixtures they are helping an industry colleague who is seriously ill or injured. That’s because LiteGear has pledged a portion of the profits of the sales of all LiteMat fixtures to Behind the Scenes and at the recent LDI show they presented a check to the charity for $10,000. LiteGear’s ongoing support of the charity through its Pledge-a-Product Program represents an incredible commitment by the company, its employees and its customers to care for their colleagues in need.
LiteGear Inc., are designers and builders of LED lighting products for professionals in the Cinema, TV, and HD Video industries and are pioneers behind the popularization of flexible LED lighting for use in Cinema and TV lighting applications.

Upon presenting the check, LiteGear CEO, Mike Wagner, stated, “Many of our customers are like family to LiteGear. As the company was started by a group of filmmakers, we take great pride in supporting charities like Behind the Scenes, which directly supports those in the field.”
Lori Rubinstein, Executive Director of Behind the Scenes, commented, “Once again LiteGear has demonstrated their heartfelt commitment to ensuring those in need won’t be evicted from their homes or have their heat and water turned off, that they’ll be able to afford medications and doctor visits. Their inclusion of information about Behind the Scenes in every shipment of LiteMat fixtures lets customers know the impact of their purchase and spreads the word that help is available to those in need.”
The Behind the Scenes charity provides entertainment technology professionals who are seriously ill or injured with grants that may be used for basic living and medical expenses.
