Lighting Equipment, Truck & Gaffer

  The lighting truck was originally set up to cater for our own production needs. The truck is mid sized with a gross weight of 5500Kg, 6 metres in overall length, 3 meters high and 2.2 meters wide and packed with equipment and affordably priced. All this taken into account the lighting truck soon became very popular as a stand alone facility with gaffer, which is normally Grant as he loves hands on lighting.

 The trucks compact size makes it great to get into those tight locations for "corporates", yet carries enough gear to light commercials, dramas and telemovies or work as 2nd unit lights on features. Generators, extra gear and crew are brought in as required.

  Strauss's subsidiary, The 12K Shop hires specialised HMI lighting and also has set up a "mid sized" lighting truck with equipment. The truck runs with Grant as gaffer when available or a selection of gaffers familiar with the truck. Additional electrics crew are brought in as the job requires. The facility runs on Strauss "shoots" or is hired independently for lighting/gaffing as required. The trucks compact weight and size enables it to work in tight locations "inner city" or any other location where size, weight, parking or access is a problem; however it's still packed with gear as listed.
