Hi,

I have a 2 day music video in LA in April and I was hoping someone here could recommend a good g/e house. The producer and I are able to search through LA411 etc. but recommendations are always nice.

I'd also be interested in a good Gaffer with their own gear. So if you'd like to hook your friend up this would be a good one.

Its mainly a DAY EXT / INT mansion type video. So 12k/6k HMI, Kinos, Fisher11, and small tow generator.

Thanks,

Matt

After some research and emailing I've found http://www.monsterlighting.com

The monster boxes and brieses seem like all I'd need. Damn, you guys in LA are spoiled. :lol:

Paskal, Cinelease, Hollywood Rentals and Wooden Nickel are all fine depending on your needs. Some will have more stuff than others, some have higher prices than others. I sort of listed them in order of typical prices I've seen from high to low.

I mostly use Wooden Nickel in LA. You are right Matt in LA they have far more toys and equipment choice than in NYC. I've tried to talk some NYC rental houses into getting similar G/E equipment.
