Run A Better Set builds apps to streamline the shooting days of studio productions. To those unfamiliar with working on set - background - the folks seen on the street, in bars, in the background of scenes, are paid employees. Managing background is a dramatically complicated process. That's why Run A Better Set was founded.
Their first app, RABS, was developed to modernize and streamline managing background, turning what was once a laborious, paper-intensive, and ineffective process into the most efficient workflow on set.
The team is an eclectic and talented group of industry veterans, ranging from folks who have worked on hundreds of sets, to those who have worked on one - and they prioritize maintaining strong, and meaningful relationships with clients and users. Most of all, the team's passion for the business emanates in their approach to RABS and RABS users. Everyone at Run A Better Set has a profound love and reverence for show business.
The company's mission is imbibed in the name - run every set, better. While RABS focuses on background, the company's curiosity reaches each department on set. Today, RABS works with Casting, A.D.s, P.A.s, Payroll, Accounting, Producers, Production Supervisors, Financial Controllers, Studio Physical Production, Finance, and Technology Executives, Payroll Companies, Background, Costumes, Props, and more. With continued growth, RABS will be the first of many production-modernizing technologies.
Run A Better Set is a company of integrity, grit, responsibility, challenge, and action. These five principles inspire their team to love our business, to respect and value the client, and to see the unseen ways to make a set better.
RABS was founded in Chicago, but works everywhere that productions are made.
