Ultimate film set first aid kit



This is the fanciest first aid kit I’ve ever seen! MacGuffin Films made this one up with everything they might need for a location shoot for about $235 total, not including the $55 Husky case. In addition to bandaging cuts and scrapes, this kit can ease almost any ailment that would delay filming. Parts list after the jump. Photos by Nathan Rosenquist.

    1 bottle/tube (10ct) glucose tablets
    1 bottle salt tablets
    4 packets energy drink powder. (gatorade or similar)
    2 mylar “space” blankets (lighting crew hands off)

    1 pair bandage scissors
    20 fingertip bandages (look somewhat like a thick waisted butterfly)
    1 tube burn cream.

    1 bottle immodium (anti-diarrehal)
    1 bottle toothache drops.
    12 alcohol prep pads.
    1 bottle permatex waterless/clothless hand cleaner

    I shouldn’t mention a bandage alternative, a bottle of cyanoacrilate glue (unless you can find the medical grade stuff)

    A little bottle of lavender oil is very useful for minor burns. It really helps take he sting away.
