Welcome to Rex Trailer Studios
Rex Trailer was the host of “Boomtown,” a popular children’s TV show from 1956-1976 in New England. As popular as he was in front of the camera, Rex was a talented director behind the camera. He was always filming segments for future shows and evolving as technology changed.
After “Boomtown,” Rex founded Rex Trailer Studios and began producing commercials, documentaries, and television programming. For 35 years, Rex taught "Performance for Television" at Emerson College and conducted private coaching and workshops at his studios in Waltham. Many of his students became renowned actors, anchors, comedians, and producers.
Rex remained active in production up until his death in 2013, working with his partner and talent manager, Michael Bavaro, on numerous projects including the Emmy-nominated documentary films “Rex Trailer’s Boomtown” and “Voices from the Basement.”
Today Rex Trailer Studios is owned and operated by Rex’s daughter, Jillian Trailer-Rollock. In a joint venture, Bavaro brings his Digital Freeway® to Rex Trailer Studios offering a full spectrum of creative services.
From animation to green screen and live action digital filmmaking, Rex Trailer Studios is keeping the spirit of its founder, Rex, fresh and forward thinking with professional digital video production for clients.
