Grip Van Packages
Blackwater Video Productions has a GM grip truck - a 1 ton GM van with 2 seats and a lift gate equipped with grip, electrical, and support equipment as described below. We pack a wide range of equipment into a small 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, Freightliner, Bosch, and already this year a half dozen political ads.
