Sprinter

 

Sprinter: Camera Truck / G&E

The Sprinter is fun. I love it. Being in Eastern Tennessee most of my work is not is town. Years ago a friend of mine had an awesome Sprinter van all decked out with all kinds of stuff. "I want one of those!" I thought. I was lucky to get my own 5 years later. Now I'm on the 2nd one. It usually functions as a camera and G&E truck with no problem. 

I build the lighting custom for the job. There's a list below, but it's not ALL in the van at the same time. Just let me know if you need something specific and I'll include that on the estimate. Usually I'll know, but can't hurt to ask.

Versatile

Yeah, it's a van. So of course it's versatile. But one of the features I looked for when buying this was the ability to bring crew. This one will hold up to 5 people, plus carts and lights and stands. For times when you need to take one vehicle for the whole crew that's handy.

Hitch available

So that photo isn't really showing a hitch, but I might as well mention that it can pull something too. Not a giant thing, but if you have part of your production that need to tow something, the sprinter might be able to help. Or it can just drive in front to part the way.
