Does anybody know a lighting rental company in the midwest (nebraska/missouri) who offer rates for individual items as well as a lighting/grip 3 -5 ton truck package? Any Gaffers out there? Shooting a low budget feature and need a good deal from the area.

thanks,
Claudio

Try Lights On in Kansas City. I've used them a few times.

I did a job in Kansas City a few years ago and we used http://www.thegilber...iz/rentals.html They where ok. But they are not set up for large shows. But if you are doing a small feature and just need a 3 or 5 ton truck they are fine. Otherwise you can pull you gear out of Denver but you might run into problems if you have equipment add-on or problems as its not right there.

Hi Claudio,

I am a Gaffer with 15 years experience working in the Midwest USA. I own and operate a Lighting/Grip Rental company in Minnesota and am interested in working with you and quoting a price for your Grip and Lighting Equipment needs. Call or email me.

I've used the following many times in Kansas City, and have had great experiences with each one:

Lights On

The Gilbert Group

Outpost Worldwide

All three have up to 5 ton trucks.

Also, depending on what you're doing, Harvest Productions is a very large theatrical/live show rental house here in KC, they may be able to help if you need a lot of PARs or similar lighting.

Gilbert at The Gilbert Group has retired from renting out gear to focus on sales. He recommended TAG Lighting and Grip http://www.taglighting.com/ for lighting and grip truck rentals in Kansas City.

Used their 5-ton grip truck and HMIs on a shoot. Truck was well laid out and gear was in great shape.
