Century Stands (or C Stands) are an important component in the image maker's arsenal of tools. The term "Century Stand" goes back to the early days of motion picture production. Before the introduction of artificial lighting, stages would revolve to allow for continuous overhead lighting from the sun. Large reflectors would be positioned to bounce or kick the light onto the stage and illuminate the set and actors. These reflectors were made in many sizes, but it seems the most popular was the 100 inch or "Century" sized reflector. In later years, studios and gaffers began to manufacture the earliest versions of what we now call C Stands. The original C Stands had welded bases that did not fold up or adjust, but the fact that they easily nested together made them invaluable on stages and sets.
In 1974 Matthews Studio Equipment introduced the industry's first adjustable C Stand. C Stand is a registered trademark of Matthews Studio Equipment and they now produce a wide range of C Stands and related accessories to assist the motion picture, television and photographic professionals in lighting and light modification support.
