The Grip Van: Ford E350 Heavy Duty with ramp
Our most popular vehicle. This is the only full service, modular lighting and grip van package in San Diego. Our clients love this van for it's slim profile and punch it packs. I have built this van from the ground up to provide a lighting and grip package loaded with premium industry grade brand name gear that supports a wide variety of productions while maintaining a small profile. This is not your average grip van. It has more premium lighting gear than most local grip trucks twice it's size and it has been designed form the ground up to be as efficient as possible. It's a stealthier version of a bona fide grip truck with preloaded carts that roll on and off via custom ramp. With ARRI M18's, 1200 pars, Skypanels and more the van can accommodate bigger shoots too! It's ability to park in a single space and in under ground parking garages allows for easy access to locations without the logistical complications or additional permit fees associated with larger grip trucks. The grip van has it all: tons of professional lighting instruments, 4x4 and 2x2 shiny boards, 12x12, 8x8 and 6x6 frames with a wide variety of fabrics, premium grip gear and camera support items, jib arm, dolly, plenty of combo and light stands, C-stands, 4x4 frames, flags and nets of all sizes, sand bags, carts and so much more. And the grip van is modular in design with gear preloaded on carts allowing grip & lighting equipment to be moved efficiently from van to set via custom ramp. All the gear is meticulously maintained, in like new condition and serviced regularly.
