Phil Horlings spent years commuting from his home in the Santa Clarita Valley to his movie industry job in Burbank, the heart of the entertainment industry. One day he realized that the film and TV companies working in the Santa Clarita Valley were doing a lot of commuting too--for replacement parts when a lighting bulb exploded or a camera malfunctioned. "The production companies were having to send someone back to the San Fernando Valley to pick these things up," Horlings said.
