Gaffer Owned

Geronimo Creek has been supplying grip and lighting equipment to the Los Angeles film community since 2002. We are privately owned by Los Angeles based union gaffer. As a result, our staff works with our equipment both on set and in our warehouse. We believe our on set experience provides a superior rental experience when working with our equipment. 

We take pride in getting the high demands of some of the most talented artists and technicians in the business. If you are unable to find what you’re looking for in our website, give us a call. Chances are, we can still get it for you.  

Our Fleet

We have recently expanded our fleet to a total of 16 trucks and vans. All of vehicles were custom built from the ground up to support grip and lighting equipment for the Los Angeles film community. For grip & lighting, we offer a variety of preloaded grip vans and trucks ranging from compact 1 ton vans, 2 ton sprinters, 3 tons, 4 tons, and 5 ton trucks. Our vehicles can be sent out empty for electric-only packages, ore preloaded with Grip Packages.

All Studio trucks and sprinter vans have oversized studio platform lift gates. For set power, we offer a wide range of generators (both drivable and tow plants) ranging from 2000w put puts to 1600 amp towable generators. We can also provide truck-mounted generators and have a series of support vehicles for towing, fueling, runs and hard to access locations. Contact us for more info on our Run Van, 16′ Studio Stake Bed and 4×4 Fueler Truck. 

Grip Equipment

We worked hard to build more efficient and Modern Grip Packages to serve our clients. Checkout our blog for more info on our custom jockey boxes and skirts, built-in speed-rail® racks, backup cameras and GPS/dash cam tracking. To build our inventory, we chose from the most reputable brands available. Our grip equipment was purchased from American Grip (stands and hardware), Los Angeles Rag House (overhead rags and flags), and Modern Studio Equipment (rigging hardware, car mounts and specialty/custom grip equipment). We also rent camera support equipment such as sliders, Dana dollies, doorway dollies, skate wheels and track. We are also located very close to JL Fisher in Burbank, CA and offer pickup and return services for your dolly and camera support rentals.    

Lighting Equipment

Our lighting inventory is continuously updated and refined to meet the demands of our seasoned gaffers and cinematographers. We carry the latest in LED lighting technology, wireless DMX, HMIs, power distribution and an extensive supply of classic Mole Richardson incandescent units. In our LED inventory, we stay current with the industry trends to service the most seasoned and experienced gaffers. We also carry the latest in Wireless DMX and Lighting Control technologies. For HMIs, we carry the full line of ARRI M-Series heads and high-speed ballasts. We also have a series of other relevant HMI brands ranging from Dadco/Sunray 24k Fresnels to Dedolight 200w HMI heads.

We have a strong background in commercial and product photography which has helped build an extensive range of specialty lighting units, table top fixtures and beauty lighting units such as Kurve umbrellas. For balloon lighting, we work closely with Erik Arendt at OneLight Balloons

Not only do we have all the lighting sources you would ever need, but we will always have you covered with our vast selection of stands, cable, power distribution, studio carts, set power and studio trucks and vans.
