Hollywood-based Quixote Studios announced that it has acquired Movie Movers, a supplier of production and talent trailers to the entertainment industry. The combined entity is now one of the largest production vehicle fleets in Hollywood.
Movie Movers, founded in 1984, provides celebrity, multi-room talent, hair and make-up, wardrobe, production and school room trailers.
The executive team from Movie Movers will join the combined entity, which now has over 200 full-time staff. The vehicle fleet will grow to 150 production trucks and over 450 trailers.
Quixote runs two studio facilities in Los Angeles as well as a third in New Orleans. All facilities serve the feature film, TV, commercial and print photography sectors. In addition to over 1 million square feet of production space, Quixote offers its own custom fleet of production vehicles, including the “Verde”-branded celebrity motor homes. Additionally, Quixote provides grip and lighting equipment, trucks, expendables and production supplies. Outside its home base of Los Angeles, the company now has offices in the production centers of New York, New Orleans, Atlanta and Michigan.
According to Quixote CEO Mikel Elliott, who started Quixote with one motorhome in 1995 along with partner Jordan Kitaen, “The Movie Movers acquisition culminates a long-term strategy to provide the highest-quality trailers to the film and TV marketplace. Our commercial clients who crossover to long-form content can now avail themselves of the upcoming Verde line of trailers.”
