Services

L&G Combo Truck

A purpose built Lighting and Grip truck saves space and money, gets closer to set, and reduces the amount of vehicles required by transport.

New Lighting Technologies

As experienced IATSE 891 Motion Picture Technicians we see the latest trends and bleeding edge technology. Recent advances such as Cineo Trucolor HS remote phosphor technology and Hybrid LED strip lights open new doors for versatile lighting with intelligent control at a fraction of the power requirements -- minimizing generator and electrical distribution needs.

FE certified - Swing Crews

If required a single Chief Lighting Technician (Gaffer) / Best Boy combo doubles as a Key Grip. We minimize manpower and operate typically with just a Gaffer, BB, and swing grip/lx technicians. Dolly Grip and Gennie Op provided as required.

Onboard Generator

Pre-loaded with a 10k Diesel generator which fits down the aisle of the truck we are capable of powering up to one 6k HMI or an assortment of smaller HMI and LED sources. We include a basic cable distro package. If required we can sub rent larger generators and additional cable to scale to your needs. Consult our FE certified technicians for additional information.

Pipe - Rigging - Dolly

Our grip package offers little compromise over a dedicated truck. We include a full assortment of Schedule 40 Aluminum scaffold pipe, car mounts, specialty rigging equipment, overhead frames and fabric, and a Panther Lightweight Platform dolly with Center Column and GI Track.

Van Package - Rapidly Scalable

We've got what you need for any size production. Sometimes you don't need a full size grip truck. We can provide a 1-Ton Van, perfect for your EPK, Corporate, Interview, or smaller Promo shoot. Need to go bigger? Sub rent a tow generator, cable package, & or slush truck. We can do it all.

The Combo Truck advantage.

Todays film productions feature light sensitive cameras, ultrafast lenses, and an adaptive approach to location lighting where less is more. We can pull off the big feature look with a fraction of the resources of the big shows.

No Compromises

Featuring a full compliment of LED, HMI, Tungsten and Grip we have everything from an onboard generator to a dolly, car mounts and specialty rigging equipment.

Scalable

Adaptable crew with combined skills and swing abilities working out of a streamlined purpose built truck. Ability to sub rent larger equipment as needed or scale down to a fast and mobile Van package.

Independent Spirit

Recognizing filmmakers needs for all-inclusive professional motion picture services at flexible rates beyond what a larger corporate rental company can offer. Inspired by New York & Los Angeles "can-do" independent film-making we bring that spirit to the Western Canadian film industry.

Limitless possibilities....

Working in film, documentary, television, music video, commercial production, and anything else which allows us to pursue our passion; we help the cinematographer create amazing images for the cinematic screen.

Charlottes Song

Charlotte’s Song Preview

Bringing the 1930’s to life with visual splendour, feat. Iwan Rheon of Game of Thrones — a.k.a Ramsay Snow; here’s a taste of Charlotte’s Song, a first feature film for producer duo Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin and Lindsey Mann of Done Four Productions who did an amazing job putting together this unique period piece film. It was an action-packed journey creating director Nicholas Humphries‘ enchanting world with DOP Naim Sutherland — who is no-stranger to dark visual storytelling.  There promises to be much more to come from this fun film. A young girl with a special gift comes of age during one of the most desolate periods in American history in this dark fantasy inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid. Think “Pan’s Labyrinth” meets “Carnivale” – gritty human drama with a supernatural twist, situated in the 1930s Oklahoma Dust Bowl. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid”, “Charlotte’s Song” tells the story of Charlotte, a young girl coming of age in the midst of one of the most desolate and desperate periods in American history. The untimely death of her mother triggers a downward spiral for her father, five sisters and their family-run song and dance act. Help comes from an unlikely source when a gangster named Randall offers to pay off their debt in exchange for making some unsavoury changes to the family business. Matters are complicated when it is discovered that Charlotte, like her mother before her, is in fact a mermaid capable of controlling humans with her voice. What follows is a sophisticated magical turf war in which antagonists from many camps seek to take advantage of Charlotte’s power.  

In this rapidly changing entertainment industry, we hope you will discover what a streamlined owner/operator lighting package and tightly knit crew of skilled technicians can do for your production.
