HMI kits, LED fixtures, EPA Tier 3 generators, green screens, more feet of cable than you can possibly imagine. We carry everything our clients’ might need to keep their productions humming through the seasons, from the rain and sleet of the Pacific Northwest to the bright skies of the Atlantic summers. And if clients are looking for more sustainable power solutions, our entire team is committed to staying on top of the latest equipment innovations to help make every set as clean and green as can be.
