Rat Race has supplied grip&lighting trucks and crew to productions since 1983. Our truck-based packages cover points between NYC and Boston, Connecticut, Rhode Island and southern Mass, as locals. Free crewing referrals (experienced, non-union crew) included for all our clients.
LIGHTING GEAR: We have 5 ton, 3.5 ton, 1.5 ton and "pick-up truck" (a la carte) packages. Easy package options (tungsten, daylight or all-in) and flexible pricing. We'll kill ourselves and our competition, to make sure you get a package that works and matches your budget. Free expendables package with each vehicle so you only pay for "fresh cuts" off a roll. No nickle-and-diming, no hidden costs.
The gear is all super organized, well maintained and in great shape. Grip, electric, HMIs, tungsten and kinoflos, LEDs, dolly, slider, generators, distro and lots of specialty rigging. We are continually updating and buying new equipment. Check out our website or call us to create your custom package and crew.
G&E CREW: Our guys and gals are all proudly, non-union, with 10 years or more of hard labor (in the industry) and are please-and-thank you, can-do types. All our regulars have experience working features, television, commercials and corporate productions. Gaffers, key grips, best boys(girls), griptricians... we'll put together a team that fits your gig and budget.
FREE CREWING SERVICES - All Departments. We have extensive lists for commercial grade crew that will work as locals and have serious chops. If you use Rat Race to supply your G&E needs, this service is free. Many work CT, RI and most of Mass and NY as locals.
Rat Race Productions is high in customer satisfaction - low in attitude.
We pride ourselves on being both friendly and fast and will never misrepresent what we can (and can't) do.
We have been in the industry since 1983.
