The Origins of the Name Roth Stock

My memorial to Old School days!

Filmmaker Lee Roth

A lot of people don’t know the origin of the name Roth Stock for my company.

Back in the “Old Days” when movies were actually shot on FILM (the F-word!) … If you ran out of film and you had maybe, three pages of dialogue left, you didn’t want to buy a whole new reel of raw film stock. It was very expensive.

But if you had a few feet of stock left over after your project, you could return it to the lab as “RAW Stock” … which would then be purchased by the director with three pages of dialogue left!

Roth Stock … It’s close! 😉
