Made on Long Island: Tiffen Company’s facility in Hauppauge
The Tiffen Company is renowned in the film and television industry for manufacturing camera filters and photography accessories.
The company has been helping photographers tell their stories since its creation in 1938.
Filters from Tiffen filters were used in movies like Blade Runner 2049 and the Joker. CEO Steven Tiffen says their optical glass filters help make unique effects.
"Everybody has the same cameras, lens, but filters are something that the cinema photographer for the creative artist can use to control that image and that look,” he said.
News 12’s Jenn Seelig visited their facility in Hauppauge for a behind the scenes look at the company.
