Though we are a NYC based team, we are not limited with the city or even a state. We're happy to travel anywhere chasing for a decent project we could bring to perfection.
Thus breathe normally now and hit us a text/call

*Certain Camera equipment available as well.
**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:

PLEASE BE AWARE that you have to hire one of our team members:

Gaffer/Key-Grip — $600/12
Swing grip — $500/12
— who will drive the van and work with you. The person knows the van like the back of their hand and will help you to move fast and effectively.
Also you are not limited with just one person — the larger the crew, the better and more efficient it works. Not to mention that certain tasks take certain manpower. For instance, building up a frame is a 2+ man job. We'll build as large crew as necessary.

*Gas and millage are included in NYC
Anything outside 5 boroughs must be reimbursed $0.75/mile.
Client is responsible for tolls and parking (van is 9ft tall and 20ft long)

If you think the pricing is unfair, just remember that using our "one-stop-shop" you save yourself a tremendous amount of time and efforts! You don't have to:
*deal with rental shops
*rent a truck
*pick up
*drop off
*return 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.

Cinematography Reel

Unfortunately hardly ever we see the final edit of feature or short films that once we’ve been a part of. By the time it is finally out, which usually means at least half a year from production period, either it completely fades from memory, or it’s another year of festival screening, or another months of wide screens in movies (sometimes on foreign markets). By the time it’s all over and a movie could be found on internet we’ve already lost any tracks it even exist. What a pity producers never send a link to watch.

But, making a superhuman effort we were able to find certain footage and Behind-The-Scenes shots.



Music Videos Reel

Music Videos are the largest part of our work routine, biggest part that keeps our team busy and a place where most of pay checks come from. Yes, most of interesting, creative and crazy lighting schemes are discovered on music video sets for music videos. Most of fun memories are somehow connected with it. And obviously music videos deliver the most of BTS footage.

Surprisingly, but we were able to track down only about 20 projects that has edited videos and has sufficient info in invoices. Everything else is either only noname BTS shots, or song names/production company names neither YouTube, nor google recognize.



Commercials Reel

And of course a separate reel of commercials and various promos.
When we hear a word "commercial", a product video pops up at first place. But it's not always that simple. Usually it's not just a bare product video. Commercial sets differs a lot from others. They are not that fussy, way less spontaneous, as every shot is 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 are never less then 12 hours or music videos that could stretch up until whatever time the crew is still alive).



DMX'able LED lights

So much fun one can have without even leaving an apartment!
First it was just a bare curiosity to employ newly purchased Astera NYX bulbs and play with balloons left after the party. Then Wireless dmx was added. But at the end of the day experience gained was already used in paid productions.
The video is a symbiosis of an actual footage and BTS videos. Sorry for a portrait dimension, these clips were intended for IG stories indeed.


behind-the-scenes


Hello there! I'm Tony, Gaffer and Owner of “Tailslate Films” rental shop. But it wasn't always this way.

I used to be a Cinematographer for 7 years, graduated from a Film School with bachelor degree, but after all these years in camera department skill- and experience-wise I decided to switch to Grip & Electric department to be a Gaffer for a certain period of time.

Here's my most up to date reel:

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.
