Film Industry pros to the rescue

Grip & Electric | Camera gear | Crew members


Hey film industry mates!

Tailslate Films is proud to offer a 2 Ton Grip and Electric Van along with qualified grips and electricians 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 the list of gear to make certain — we’ve got you 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 we’ve got you all around covered, 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.

Hello, 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:
