Does anyone know where I could rent a generator in or near Los Angeles? This is for a highschool 16mm production in Culver City, our shooting schedule is set from March 31st to April 7th. A trailer mounted unit or even a Putt Putt would be great. As you can probably imagine since we are only a public highschool and are shooting on 16mm film our budget is extremely tight. If you know of any companies that would consider a donation or even a student rate would be awesome. :)

Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Hey,

Crack open the phone book and look under "Equipment Rental" in the yellow pages. If you need it synced for film work, then that's gonna take a film equipment rental joint and that'll cost a few bucks more.

I've rented generators from Aggreko here in OKC. They're gear has always been in great condition. They're not the cheapest outfit but I wouldn't even consider going elsewhere.
