Grip Truck Packages
Blackwater Video Productions has a 1 ton grip truck in a GM box truck. It is well suited to documentary, corporate and industrial productions. We can make arrangements for a larger truck or specific equipment to meet your needs.
We also have 3/4 ton GMC van with 4 seats setup as a grip van equipped with grip, electrical, and support equipment as described below. We pack a wide range of equipment into a small package.
The tungsten light kits listed below are included as part of the grip truck package. Kinoflo, Litepanel 1x1 Bi Color lights, larger HMI fresnels and PARs, and Source IV lights are priced 'a la carte' at the bottom of the page, and can be easily added to the truck on request. We work in Pittsburgh as local.
The truck only rents with a grip or gaffer, so that it is covered by our insurance. We will also require the clients provide proof of liability insurance with us listed as an additional insured.
Some recent projects have included shoots for the West Virginia Lottery, Animal Planet, K Hovnanian Homes, Coke a Cola
