The B-Side is a music magazine produced and created by UC Berkeley students, in both a printed and online format.

Equipment Spotlight
Need some extra weight? As part of our extensive equipment checkout resources, the PMC provides a Sandbag kit so that you and your film crew can weigh down light stands and booms on set. With six pieces included, the sandbags would also be useful as dolly stops or a “bean bag” for long lenses.
The PMC also provides both large and small fog machines with their own wired remotes for rental. If you’re looking for a certain spooky effect for your project, you can check these out on our website, perhaps in conjunction with some fog liquid.
