About HCL

High Contrast Lighting and Grip has been in business since 2003. We have seen many changes in the technology that is utilized in Film and TV lighting. We were around long before High Definition was the standard format in broadcast and we have witnessed the development of LED technology. We have seen many changes in our industry, but one thing remains: We are dedicated set lighting technicians: Gaffer, Grip, and Electrician. We are not shooters or aspiring DP’s – just experienced lighting guys who have worked all over the U.S. and abroad in the entertainment lighting industry. We started High Contrast Lighting and Grip to fill the need locally for reliable lighting and grip equipment that is priced right and delivered efficiently and professionally.

Truck Packages

Our Grip Trucks and Packages are designed with efficiency and flexibility in mind. From complete lighting and grip trucks to the small ‘kit’ packages we can customize the equipment to fit any sized crew and budget, for any kind of shoot. Specialty equipment can be added to any package for a complete customization, just ask us!

Lighting Gear

Lighting Units are the paintbrushes used by the DP. We have a wide selection of the latest lighting equipment to accommodate multiple lighting techniques. Whether you need LED, HMI, Fluorescent, or Tungsten lighting or any combination of the above, we have you covered.

Grip Equipment

Grip Equipment is the platform upon which your production is built, and often supports many other departments on set. Whether you need a few miscellaneous items, a small grip package or an entire grip truck, we have what you need. We offer a few custom kits or we can make one just for you – just ask us!

We are continually adding equipment so we may have items in our inventory that are not listed. Please ask us for any special needs you may have.
