Hi Everyone,

I'm shooting a short industrial in Manhattan and am investigating rates for small lighting packages. Here's a list of what I'm looking for:

Fresnels:
(1) 2KT
(2) 1KT
(3) 650T
(2) 300T

HMI:
(1) 1.2K

Misc.:
(1-2) XS-S Chimeras

I'm also looking for a small list of grip equipment. Budget is modest, but not tiny. Anyone have some solid recommendations for lighting houses?

Thanks much!

Hot Lights is a good place for small packages like what you described. The best thing about Hot Lights is that theirs no insurance necessary just a credit card which is good in small rental situations

these guys are awesome for the small rental. they even deliver and pick up. it's great. i've used them a few times for short films and corporate stuff. they have a somewhat new approach to rentals and are able to keep the prices real low. give them a call and tell Ivan that I sent you. He should remember me as the guy who got one of his apple boxes thrown out by the NY Sanitation department. It wasn't my fault though...
