is a Playback and Video Assist equipment rental company based in Chicago.
We Provide Equipment and the Labor to Operate our equipment on our jobs for Television, Movies and Commercials.
A brief history - Kevin Boyd (Founder/ Owner) began in the equipment rental business in 1991. I completed my first full movie in 1990. I started buying equipment in 1991. We began serving the Chicago Film Community in 1991. Through the years we have worked extensively in Los Angeles and on location in the United States and abroad.
Kevin can answer your questions regarding equipment, pricing, scheduling and team members. Please look through this website for our credits. The majority of the time we coordinate and provide the equipment and labor on our jobs. The rare occasion we have supplied only equipment or labor.
Playback: As Chicago has turned into a ‘tv town’ the last several years we have been doing more ‘playback work’. I would estimate we have completed over 200 full episodes of television since 2012.
Video Assist: on movies tends to be full time work, outside of the occasional exception (Sense8, Pilots, HBO) it is Day work on TV and Commercials.
team member resumes and references available upon request.
Our office is conveniently located on grand ave. on the west side of Chicago. Very close to downtown and all Chicago film studios.
June 2018 - Our site is a work in progress.
We look forward to hearing from you. Thank You for stopping by.
