Billy at his sister’s wedding!

Meet MPS Dallas Studio Coordinator Billy Corts! When he’s not prepping rental orders, taking care of clients on our studios, or maintaining the back of the house, you can find him listening to NPR and messing around with the ARRI L7C.

1. How did you get your start with MPS and how long have you been with the company?
I have been with MPS for a about two years now. After I graduated UNT, I worked a few jobs here and there but didn’t have any solid work. I decided to just Google Dallas production studios and started sending out emails. MPS was the only one that got back to me, and now here I am.

2. When you’re not at MPS, where can we find you? i.e. How do you recharge?
When I am not working, I’m usually at home or with some friends. I like to unwind by playing games, watching TV and movies, and a little reading.

3. What’s your favorite piece of equipment to work with?
My favorite piece of equipment to work with is the Arri L7 C. It’s super easy to set up, weighs a few pounds, and it’s fun to play around with all the color settings.

4. If we were to hop onto your music playlist, what would we see you were listening to most recently?
I listen to mostly rock music, but, I usually have NPR on, if anything. It actually has a variety of content and almost no ads.

5. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
Spider-Man has been my main man forever. He can lift about ten tons, super fast and agile, and has a precognitive 6th sense. So, if I could have any powers, they would be Spidey’s powers.

Interested in shooting in one of our studios? Billy will show you around! Give us a call at 214-630-1655 or email us at [email protected] We’d be happy to help!
