Been working with Acme Lighting & Grip for forever… why go anywhere else! They offer the best equipment available including Fisher dollies, and maintain their gear impeccably. Easy freeway access, orders are always accurate, ready and waiting for you.

Like many of us in the production business, Peter Kreklow wants to provide the best equipment and service. He takes personal pride in his business and it shows every time you pick up an order. Service like this is not always easy to find!

As a cinematographer, my job is to provide the best image possible for my clients.  This requires the best gear to work with, and Acme Lighting and Grip is my "go to" source in the San Diego area.  Their trucks always have a solid selection of gear that is clean, organized and properly prepped.  And if you have a special need, Peter Kreklow the owner, always delivers. Acme also provides  the only Fisher 10 and 11 dollies in the area, along with all the accessories.  This is a real production time saver by not having to bring that gear down from Hollywood.  You always get professional service and exceptional attitude when you work with Acme Lighting and Grip.

I have worked with Acme and Peter Kreklow for over 20 years. Pete and Acme have always provided great service, top-notch gear and competitive pricing for every job we've worked together on. Perhaps most important Acme;s gear is VERY well maintained and i can't remember ever having problems with any rentals. And when renting Acme's L&G truck, the DP/gaffer with the truck is always one of the best in San Diego.

Nothing but great experiences with Pete and Acme . . . highly recommend!

Peter and the ACME Lighting & Grip company are some of the most knowledgeable and professional in the industry. Being a recent graduate of UCSD and being in the film/entertainment business for several years, I have known Pete for some time now. I have rented from dozens of rental houses but ACME is the fairest and most professional of them all. I have never had a problem with missing or broken equipment and the service is phenomenal. ACME is the only companies south of LA that has Fisher dollies as well as having access to every tool you would need to complete your next shoot with ease. I would recommend ACME over any lighting and grip company in southern California. After knowing the crew for several years and working with them on countless occasions, they are amazing at what they do and I would recommend them to anyone.
