Geronimo Creek has been supplying grip and lighting equipment to the Los Angeles film community since 2002. We are privately owned by a Los Angeles based union gaffer. As a result, our staff works both on set and in our warehouse which provides a superior rental experience when working with our equipment.
If you are unable to find what you’re looking for listed in our website, give us a call. We take pride in meeting the highest demands of our clients and have worked with some of the most talented artists and technicians in the business. We are always updating our inventory so the chances are we do have it, if not we can probably get it for you.
We have recently expanded our fleet to a total of 16 studio vehicles. All of our vans and trucks include custom designed racks and shelving to service grip and lighting equipment while on location. We offer five preloaded grip packages ranging from compact 1 ton vans, 2 ton sprinters, 3 tons, 4 tons, and 5 ton grip trucks. If you need a combo G&E truck, our grip packages have a minimal footprint, leaving plenty of room for your additional grip and lighting equipment. If your order is electric-only, that is also our specialty. All of our trucks and vans are designed to convert into efficient electric-only lighting packages. And yes, all of our Sprinter vans and trucks come with large platform lift gates. We also carry a selection of support vehicles such as stake beds, run vans and a 4×4 fueling truck.
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.
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 (CMRX), 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 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 optional 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 us build an extensive range of specialty lighting units, table top fixtures and beauty lighting units such as Kurve umbrellas. For balloon lighting, we work with Erik Arendt at OneLight Balloons.
For set power, we offer generators ranging from 2000w put-puts to 1600 amp towable or truck mounted generators. We carry all put-puts in house and are partnered with Off the Grid Generators to supply our tow plants and drivable units. All of our generators are always meticulously maintained and reliable. This is very important when operating in the field.
