Today it's quite common for out of state production companies to want to travel light. Having to lug around lighting and grip equipment from town to town or even state to state can wear out even the hardiest of crews.

Why not let me do the heavy lifting and let your DP concentrate on getting you the best possible images.

I've been a freelancer working in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island for over 20 years. I can work as a gaffer or a grip.

I have the knowledge and experience to contribute, when asked, and the skill to make it happen.
