Frans Weterrings has decades of experience in the industry, working on feature films, television shows and commercials worldwide. He has had the opportunity to work with a vast and diverse group of filmmakers, and is a member of both IATSE Local 481 (New England) and Local 728 (Los Angeles).

Surrogates, Knight and Day, Moonrise Kingdom, Little Women, Okja, Lost City of Z, Don’t Look Up and Spirited are among his extensive feature filmography. He has worked both East and West Coast television shows, including Providence, Numbers, Brotherhood, and Body of Proof; as well as commercials for Toyota, Volkswagen, Victoria’s Secret and Samuel Adams, to name a few.

Frans made Boston his home in 1994, after attending Boston University. 184 Everett Street in Allston was the location of his first film job, working in the shop of Boston’s then-biggest equipment rental house. Three years later, Red Herring Motion Picture Lighting was founded by Frans and Dave Cambria in a small loft in Boston’s South End, with little more than an ARRI kit and some Kino Flo lights.

Red Herring has since grown into one of the largest grip and lighting rental houses in New England, and they have been equipment providers for most of the large projects that have shot here. 184 Everett Street became the home of Red Herring and Red Sky Studios in 2014 – that same building from Frans’s first job. They now boast a large client roster, including Apple TV, Netflix, NBC, CBS, ABC and HBO; Amazon, Sony Pictures, Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Paramount and Disney Pictures.

Frans and Dave are excited about the newest chapter of their story, with the opening of Red Sky Studios – Foxborough! Midway between Boston and Providence, right at the center of the New England film scene!
