Hello. I'm shooting a feature in Eastern Washington state some time this summer. I'm curious if anyone can point me towards the best grip and electric rental house in Seattle. If there is even more than one. I'm looking for a good deal on a 5 ton package and a 500 amp genny. I'm also looking for local talent in the grip and electric departments. I know this isn't strictly along documentary lines, but I thought I'd give this forum a try, as I'm striking out in other places.
Hi Holden, I recommend Anne Seidlitz, I have worked with her several times on similar projects. I have forwarded your listing to her. Good luck!
Is anyone in need of audio post production services for their documentaries? I work independently as well as with a world class post production studio called Clatter&Din studios. I was recently lead sound designer for the feature films "Safety Not Guaranteed" and "Eden" which did extremely well at Sundance and SXSW respectively. I have also worked on a number of documentary projects including a 50 minute doc called "Uncertain Ice" which you can find a clip from on my website.
I hope to hear from some of you soon.
