Our First Warehouse

CFG Started in a garage with a desire to help small time filmmakers and college students rent lighting, grip, and cameras for friendly rates. Our success swiftly enabled us to move to a storage unit. Then another, and then one more before we took on our first warehouse in 2014. We found our calling with pre-loaded grip truck and lighting packages, and moved to our current location in 2016.

CFG has transformed itself into a full-service lighting and grip rental supplier with a side hustle in production supplies and transportation.

Everyone is our customer. Students, music videos, national commercials, regional commercials, sort form films and series, independent features, episodic and reality television, and full-buget features. We maintain the resources to provide you service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a professional persepcetive at all times.

Spend your money with small businesses–we are capable of competing at any scale. When you spend locally, you enable our employees to take home a fair salary, health benefits, and co-exist in an easy-going work environment.

President

I grew up in Los Angeles around the film industry. My father is a television propmaster and I frequented the sets of many popular tv shows on my days off from school. I graduated from the Cal State Northridge film program and explored many jobs from below the line lighting crew to Director of Photography to Producer, while renting insignificant snippets of equipment to various productions. The desire to purchase more and more equipment prevailed and I found myself with no space left in my two car garage, which prompted me to turn CFG into a legetimate business.
