2009 The Year So Far

So far 09 has been pretty busy overall.  Despite the wind coming out of the sails in February we have been steadily plugging away and meeting new Gaffers and Directors of Photography.

Fastest Gaffer on a bicycle,  Jim Young.

One of my all time favorite people Adan Galindo.
Gracias Primo!

One shoot rolls to another, and then another and then some other. Pretty soon it gets blurry and before you know it the year is GONE. Seems like that's what happened in 08. It was a very busy year and we were fortunate to work with some amazing Gaffers and DPs. We saw a steady rise in the rentals of our Briese Lights as well as Monster Boxes.  We were able to update our website and now have a picture of our entire inventory online.
 Here are a few shots from 2008.

"Guys!  Those Gators aren't for racing!"

One of our all time favorite Directors to work with, Dave Dore.

Gaffer and friend of the company, Lee Spencer

Some say James Brown was the hardest working man in show business.
I beg to differ.

All Stars '08

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

Don't ask.

The future of Hollywood,  Will Reid.

The old "dinos on a scissor through grid."  A nice way to drive around a big soft source.
