Rent a Grip Truck with or without a gaffer
I’ve been a gaffer in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Orlando for over 20 years. I love working with people that love filmmaking and take pride in their craft! I build my own grip trucks and I work on location with my grip trucks in Florida! I have a passion for Lighting, Grip and cinematography. I am constantly learning about new equipment and new lighting technologies. I attend seminars Cinegear and NAB every year. When I load a Grip truck for your Florida production I put equipment on the truck that we just might need. Just because it’s not on our list doesn’t mean we don’t want to have it on hand!!! “As per used” equipment is our specialty!

FEATURED PRODUCTS & SERVICES
I maintain the grip and lighting gear and the grip trucks myself. However, we have more than grip trucks for your next production. You’ve got my personal assurance that you’re going to be satisfied with the rental equipment you receive AND the crew I refer you to. If you aren’t, I’ll do whatever it takes to make it right! We’re here to service your grip and lighting needs whether you need a couple of lights and stands or a full 10-ton grip truck with a Fisher dolly and crew. If you need a grip truck in Florida, we’re the ones to call.
Tell us about your production and we’ll recommend the right film equipment and manpower solution. Crew services are our specialty. All my guys have tons of experience and I’ve worked with each and every one of them. Serving all of South Florida, Central Florida, and West Florida.
Hands down the Arri sky panels, Aputures and Asteras are some of my favorite lights to work with. They’re lightweight, operate very cool, are rugged and durable, and produce a beautiful quality of light that’s easy on the eyes . Aputures, Arri’s and Asteras most popular models are their 4ft 4-Bank (4×4) and their 2ft 4-Bank (4×2). But we stock others as well, Cremesource, Dedo, K5600, Titan tubes, Helios Tubes, Litepanel Gemini, and Litemat.
When you need big film rental lighting with a punch, nothing beats an HMI light. Rent an ARRI M18, Arri HMI, Arri 4K HMI, and Mole Richardson 12K HMI for your production. We have rental generators to power them! We also stock ARRI 575w HMIs, perfect for interviews, and 4K HMI and beyond as well. ARRI makes a fine lighting product, but nothing beats the portability of the K5600 Joker 800, Joker 400, or 200 HMI kits. K5600 Joker rental kits come with everything you need in a compact hard case. The Joker 400 and 200 kits can even be powered by industry-standard Anton Bauer Gold Mount batteries.
LED lights have certainly earned their place in today’s productions. The LitePanels Astra 1×1 is our most popular LED product. These gems come as a pair in a handy soft case complete with stands and batteries — perfect for an interview setup on the go. We also carry complete Dedolight 4-light kits. These niche fixtures are popular for product work or if you want to release your inner J.J. Abrams with some lens flare.
Of course, if your budget doesn’t allow for fancy lighting, we stock tried and true ARRI tungsten Fresnel and open-face fixtures as well. Pick up an ARRI 4-light kit complete with stands and a convenient rolling case for your next production.
