We bring all the gear we need for documentary filming, maintaining a van package with lighting and camera gear. There is an art to bringing the right amount of gear for a documentary, so we are prepared for surprises, but not so much that it becomes a ball and chain, slowing us down and drawing attention to the process. New equipment like the Sony FX9 insures great images. In order to facilitate docs, promos, digital projects and corporate work, we maintain a van package containing lighting and camera gear. Here are our in-house resources for camera equipment and lighting equipment. Current documentary reel can be viewed here.
