Film Industry pros to the rescue

Grip & Electric Rental | Camera gear | Crew members


Hey film industry mates!

Tailslate Films is proud to offer a 2 Ton Combo Grip and Electric Van along with qualified G&E staff to provide a full support of your small to medium scale production.

Founded and operated by a gaffer and DP, we did our best to stuff a van with the most useful and versatile G&E gear, keeping it as compact as it could be — van occupies one standard parking lot — and make the best use of inner space. Though we could easily handle a full scale film production, also we’re absolutely comfortable with run’n’gun mode with hundreds company moves during a single day. Everything stored wisely and any piece of gear could easily be reached without the need to unloading half of a van.

Great for short films, music videos, documentaries, commercials, interviews, you name it. Camera equipment available as well. Our professional Grip and Electric crew members are ready and set to spot you on every step of film and video production.

Feel free to inspect gear lists and various plans tailored for different scales and needs to make certain — we’ve got you all around covered.
if you don’t find a piece of equipment your production needs, no worries at all! We will be happy to sublease it on a price match basis, there’s still plenty of room inside the van. Thus breathe normally now and hit us a text/call

Though we are a Los Angeles based team, we are eager to travel across entire California and even beyond in chase of decent set we could bring to perfection.

BTW We love STUDENTS. Once students ourselves, we are ready to offer you deals to ease your budget pain. Hit us an email explaining what’s going on so we could negotiate anything solid.

Okay, it's about time to pick a perfect gear package that works best for your project:

2 Ton Grip and Electric package enough to lit a short film or a small feature, according to our wide expertise


2 Ton Grip package along with a set of LED fixtures, built up and shaped for music videos at first place. RGB (certain of fixtures), low power consumption, 0-100% dimmable.
+ $150 for a wireless DMX option with Cintenna


Shooting a quick 1-2-3 person interview and need an easy but sound lightning package? Sure thing we got you covered. It is a 3 LED fixture kit — Skypanel, Litemat 4+ and Arri L7 + 2 Ton Grip Van.
HALF DAY
Gaffer's rate: $300/6

Along with lighting equipment we also rent out a camera package — Canon C300 mkII + lenses $200/half day


Why pay for a gear you know will never be used? Take only what is necessary for your set. 2 Ton Grip and light fixtures of your choice.

* PLEASE BE AWARE that you have to hire one of our team members:
Gaffer/Key-Grip — $500/12
Swing grip — $400/12
— who will drive the van and work with you. The person knows the van like the back of his hand and will help you to move fast and effectively.
Also you are not limited with just one person. We'll build as large crew as necessary.

Gas and millage are included in TMZ (30 mile zone with the center in Hollywood). Anything further than that (or 60 miles per day) must be reimbursed $0.75/mile.

If you think the pricing is unfair, just remember that using our turn key services you save yourself a tremendous amount of time! You don't have to:
deal with rental shopsrent a truckpick updrop offreturn a truck
We save you at least 2 days of labor and hustle.
BUT! If you find a better price — send us a link and in case the deal is real — we match it.

Gaffers Reel / Cinematography

Long time I was unable to come up with an idea: what should a gaffers reel look like? I couldn’t pass final footage off as my own, right? Footage belongs to a cinematographer. Just as the frame does. As my job as a gaffer hides right around the frame.

“But it has a huge impact on the final product!” — I argued with myself.Thus I decided that a gaffers reel should include both: final cut and a BTS footage.
During a 5 year term In LA 3 of which I serve as a gaffer a lot of footage was gathered. So much that the only way to cut it together was to cut it into 3 separate reels. Here’s the first one based on short and feature film productions:


Gaffers Reel / Music Videos

Music Videos are the largest part of my gaffers job, still biggest unit that keeps me busy and place where most of pay check comes from. Yes, most interesting and crazy lighting schemes are discovered for music videos. Most of fun memories are somehow connected with it. And obviously music videos deliveres the most of BTS footage to my iphone.
Surprisingly, but I was able to track down only about 20 projects that has final videos, and has sufficient info in invoices. Everything else I have either only BTS shoots, or song names/production company names that neither YouTube, nor google recognize. Okay with that being said I tried hard to shrink everything into just 2 minutes, and here it is:


Gaffers Reel / Commercials

And the last reel — commercials and various promos.
When we hear a word "commercial", a product video pops up at first place. But it's not always this way. Even usually it's not shrank to just a bare product video. I love working on commercial sets. They are not that fussy, way less spontaneous, as every shot is strictly confirmed with a client, and comfortable all in all. Not to mention rarely they are longer then 10 hours (in contrast to a regular film sets, that never are less then 12 hour, or music videos that could stretch up until whatever time the crew is still alive).
